In this short video from Reach Out and Read, Dr. Eileen Costello, MD, models how a pediatrician might address screen time during a well visit. Dr. Costello and a father and son act out a clinical situation in which she recommends reading books and limiting screen time, especially before bed.

Reach Out and Read is a nonprofit organization that gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.
