Recommendations on screen time from the American Academy of Pediatrics.


Recommendations on screen time from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

1. For children younger than 18 months, avoid use of screen media other than video-chatting.

2. For children ages 2 to 5 years, limit screen use to 1 hour per day of high-quality programs.

3. For children ages 6 and older, place consistent limits on the time spent using media, and the types of media, and make sure media does not take the place of adequate sleep, physical activity and other behaviors essential to health.

4. Designate media-free times together, such as dinner or driving, as well as media-free locations at home, such as bedrooms.
