Teachers Resisting Unhealthy Children’s Entertainment is well represented at the NAEYC Conference. It will be distributing TRUCE materials—e.g., the TRUCE Toy Guide, TRUCE Media Guide, and the TRUCE Infant and Toddler Play and Media Guide—at its booth in the exhibit hall and at key sessions at the conference. In addition, TRUCE is currently working on 2 new resources: 1. A guide for families on understanding and resisting the huge corporate push to get more and more new screen technology and apps into the lives of infants and toddlers; and 2. A guide for families of fun, engaging play activities indoors and out—for each of the 4 seasons. Keep an eye on the TRUCE website (www.truceteachers.org) and/or sign up to receive emails from TRUCE when new materials to help you in your work with children and families go on line.
