As a final, for now, posting on this topic, a quote from Lee Lozowick.
"One of the saddest aspects of technology today is that children, even infants, are exposed to so much television, so many video games, and so many movies at such a young age. Among other experts and child advocates, Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of Magical Child (Plume, 1992) and Evolution's End (HarperOne 1993), says that even an ostensibly loving parental situation could be highly compromised for a child by television that is present from infancy. The imaginal faculties aren't present when a baby is born. They develop later - at three, four, five, maybe six years. Pearce says that if one sits children in front of a television, it's like feeding predigested food to their minds. They're getting images that they don't have to learn to create on their own, and so the imaginal faculties don't develop, and this is crippling to them. As they grow, these children can't imagine, they can't visualize, they can't project. Consequently, they are denied some of the brilliant facets of healthy development; their development of creativity is left flat and lopsided."
