Not all screen time is created equal.
It’s up to YOU to decide how (and how often) your child or teenager uses screens and whether their screen time is positive or negative. For instance, time spent on homework or other educational activities might not need to be as restricted as time spent playing video games.
In this Guide I look at kids of all ages, and how / why screen time should not replace time needed for sleeping, eating, being active, studying, and interacting with family and friends and having FUN offline 😊
