Screen Time and Kids
Children and teens need to be monitored and have limitations to the amount of screen time they spend each day.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:
- Limit entertainment based screen time to under 2 hours for persons over age 2.
- Avoid all electronic entertainment for children under age 2.
- Establish “screen-free” zones and times, for example in bedrooms and during dinner.
