New Recommendations For Electronics Use In Young Kids

Posted: Updated:

The American Academy Of Pediatrics released new recommendations this morning for parents struggling with how much and when kids should be allowed to use electronic devices.

Here's what doctors say:

  • No devices during mealtime or after bedtime.
  • Devices should be kept out of bedrooms.
  • Limit the number of hours on any screen to less than two hours a day.
  • Children under two should have no screen time whatsoever.

What prompted these new recommendations? Doctors say that there is a link between using electronics and problems at school, cyberbullying, obesity and lack of sleep.
