Happy New Year from iQ: smartparent!

Submitted by on Fri, 01/01/2016 - 12:03

Happy 2016 from all of us at WQED and iQ: smartparent! This year, we're kicking off something new: monthly features that showcase our past shows that fit with important themes for you and your kids. We'll also use the front page of our website to feature great new articles and blog posts from our friends at Common Sense Media. 

This month, we're featuring our episode on "Healthy Media Habits" with Dr. Michael Rich. This show is a great 30-minute episode that fits right in with this time of year when we're taking stock of our habits and making resolutions to do better. Check out this episode and 

Also, there was a great episode of the National Public Radio program "The Diane Rehm Show" back in October 2015 about kids and screen time that features Dr. Rich along with several other friends of iQ: smartparent. Check out this episode to hear from Common Sense Media CEO Jim Steyer; Lisa Guernsey, director of the Early Education Initiative and the Learning Technologies Project at New America; and Rachel Barr, professor at Georgetown University. You can see Lisa Guernsey's appearance on iQ: smartparent here, and you can check out more from all of these educational leaders on The Diane Rehm Show's blog post about that episode here.

Best wishes to all our viewers and friends for a happy, healthy new year!
