U.S. News and World Report investigates the effects of early exposure to computers on the development of very young children. The magazine finds that many child psychiatrists are not convinced that exposure to computers is good for children during their early development. "Too much 'screen time' at a young age, they say, may actually undermine the development of critical skills that kids need to become successful, dimishing creativity and imagination, motivation, attention spans, and the desire to persevere."
