What is Screen Time?
Screen time refers to activities performed in front of a screen, such as watching television, working on a computer, or playing video games. It tells you how much time you and your children spend on applications, websites, and other websites.
Recommended Screen Time by Age?
Between the ages of 18 and 24 months, screen use should be limited to educational programs watched with a caregiver. Limit non-educational screen usage for children ages 2 to 5 to around 1 hour each weekday and 3 hours on weekends.
Encourage healthy behaviors and minimize screen-based activities for children aged 6 and up.
