The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against putting children age 2 or younger in front of a screen. For children 3 and above it recommends no more than 1 to 2 hours of educational, nonviolent programs each day. For these children family movies are a great way for intentional parents to use entertainment to enhance a child's verbal skills, social and emotional learning and character education.
"Fraggle Rock" helps children grow in social and emotional terms. TWM's Talking and Playing Guide will help parents and teachers enhance those benefits.
