American children spend on average almost 2.5 hours a day in front of a screen. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that young children get no more than one hour a day of a screen time.
A child in front of a screen is missing opportunities to practice interpersonal, communication and motor skills, which may interfere with optimal development in these areas.
In other words- limiting your child's screen time can make a significant difference in their development, health and wellbeing.
