Report: Kids Need Less Screen Time
Posted by Samantha Casais on 6/1/2017 8:00:00 AM.
New recommendations have been released outlining how much screen time is acceptable for children. The position statement from the Canadian Pediatric Society claimed children under two should be getting no screen time at all. Kids 2-5 should get less than one hour a day, and all kids should have no screen time less than an hour before bed. Families are also encouraged to develop a "media plan" as early as possible, as habits are harder to change the older kids get.
