Dr. Mark Tremblay was interviewed for a story, “Risky business: Is an over-protective approach to parenting causing more harm than good?” that recently ran in Smallish, a magazine published in the UK.
From the story:
With more families opting for the safe haven of home to entertain their children, the irony is that we may be exposing them to even greater risks. “The likelihood of a cyber predator getting children is something in the region of 150-200 times higher than a real predator on the outside,” reveals Dr Tremblay, explaining that the risks go far beyond psychological. “Indoors, children have less physical ativity — which we know is bad — and excessive screen time with exposure to violence, sex and terrorism. And this is usually all unsupervised!”
