Managing Your Child's Screen Time

Managing Your Child's Screen Time

How much time does your child spend playing video games, scrolling through social media, or browsing the internet? In a 2016 study by Common Sense, “8- to 12-year-olds spend an average of about four and a half hours a day (4:36) with screen media, while teens spend just over six and a half hours a day with screens (6:40).” This is a staggering and highly concerning amount - between 16-27% of your child’s day is spent just in front of a screen! While using electronics has many benefits for education and exercise, the study also found that most of the time spent in front of a screen was to watch TV and videos and to listen to music. For these reasons, limiting your child’s screen time is an extremely important key to helping them live a healthy life. In this article, we’ll be talking about ways to monitor and limit the screen time in your family’s daily life.
