I'm Kelly Blair with your forecast from the KOMO forecast team. This is KOMO morning. News rewind a lot of people are concerned that kids are spending too much time online on their phones, and ipads these days, but parents can and should embrace the realities of modern childhoods according to temple university. Professor, doctor Jordan Shapiro, and Dr Shapiro's is with us right now. Good morning. Good morning. Great to be here. We're great. I know we have enough trouble staying off our phones and other devices. How do Paris keep kids off them? I think I would flee the conversation. You know, I think we have enough. Trouble staying there. Because no parents taught us how to how to really manage that ourselves. And so what I'd really like to see parents do is say, hey, we need to teach our kids the etiquette. So that they know how to make the right decision. But even more so how to live a digital life online. So much of our life is digital at this point, we use Skype. We use Email. We use social media. Nobody really taught how to handle that. Right. Like, how do you do the etiquette of that the digital world is like a giant Blake rows? Right. It's a playground for kids. It's it's absolutely a playground. But no parents walked into this playground. It would they grabbed. So but somewhat stops at share. Or would they hit? No kidding. Instead, we sort of less of the go alot. And it's almost as we said, here's all the rules for crossing the street that go try it by yourself. We don't do that. We hold their hands up walk. The walk our kids across the street, but we're not only their hands on the internet. I have a seven year old at home and the whole iphone ipad thing is already an issue. How do you start and win is too early to start teaching kids? Most doctors say you want you don't really wanna start until about two years older. But I would say the sooner you do it. And maybe not for lots of time at the sitter. You do it the better because you want to build those patterns into into their lives. You want to build those healthy healthy relationships from the beginning. And you want that healthy relationship to be modeled by the adults? Right. We need to show them how to do that. So the best thing I would say is is baby don't use it with little kids. I had an iphone as a as a way to distract that babysit with them and use it with that play with that. But we look at all the research is. Almost all the interactions that kids have with their parents around screens are either restrictive or these negotiations about what are the screen type will not pay. Here's how you should think about what you're seeing this creed. Here's how you should make sense of this game. Here's how you should integrate it into your life as a as both digital and a real life person. Well, it's definitely a timely topic. And Dr Shapiro has written a book about this.
