Tips & Tools

Family Media Plan

Use the AAP's Family Media Plan tool to help you and your children set media priorities that matter most to your family. Come back to revise your plan as often as you need to, such as at the beginning of each school year or during summer and holiday breaks.​

Motor Delay Tool

Acting early on motor delays in children makes a big difference. Use this tool to help explore your child’s motor skills, what’s typical for their age, and get tips on talking with your child’s pediatrician about them.

Physical Activity Checker

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that kids 6 years and older get 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity​ on most days of the week. Use our physical activity checker stopwatch tool to find out if your kids are getting enough exercise.​
