"You have all you need to nurture your young child in the digital age," says Mary Rothschild. She says we need to develop "attention" ability, and that attention is neurological, forming dynamic neural connections happens in the first six years of life.

My passion is to help parents of young children trust their own instincts, know that their attention is most important to the child and help them see where and how to bring that attention within their busy lives. I founded and direct the non-profit Healthy Media Choices and teach Children and Media at Fordham University. Whether speaking at a conference, creating custom workshops for schools, communities and teacher training institutes, or working with an individual family, my work is infused, not just with research, but with personal experience as a parent and grandparent seeing the stress that conflicting information and the demands of everyday life can put on parents who are trying to be intentional and caring with their young children. http://www.healthymediachoices.org
