Study: Kids’ Brains Altered by Excessive Screen Time

new study at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center revealed that young kids are getting far more screen time than what is recommended.

American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations include:

*Children younger than 18 months:  Avoid the use of screen media except for video- chatting with the grandparents.  😊

*Children 2 to 5 years: Restrict screen use to 1 hour per day of quality programs.

*Children 6 and older:  Place consistent limits on the time spent using media, and the types of media.

Bottom Line: Media / screen time should not take the place of sufficient sleep, physical activity and other behaviors necessary for good health.
