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
- Establish "screen-free" zones and times, for
example in bedrooms and during dinner.
For more information on the potential neurological impact
that screen time has on the brain, see:
