What is Too Much Screen Time for Kids?
A behavioral science professor says your child's behavior should dictate how much time they spend on their devices.
How much is too much screen time? That’s the question many parents are asking now that school is out. A professor of behavioral sciences said it’s not about a specific number of hours spent online that indicates an addiction or problem. It’s the child’s behavior toward their phone that we should pay attention. If your child is not talking to anyone at home, talking less in general, always spending time in their room or they get anxious about whatever they see or do online, those things that may signal an issue.
