Using Screen Time Limits Makes Happier Kids


There are many studies that have shown teens who spent more time on new media (screens) were more likely to report mental health issues than those who spent time on non-screen activities. A 2017 study found kids who spent three hours or more a day on smartphones or other electronic devices were 34% more likely to suffer at least one suicide-related outcome—including feeling hopeless or seriously considering suicide—than kids who used devices two hours a day or less. Among kids who used electronic devices five or more hours a day, 48% had at least one suicide-related outcome. We must start taking screen time seriously. In a new set of guidelines, the World Health Organization said that infants under one year old should not be exposed to electronic screens and that children between the ages of 2 and four should not have more than one hour of “sedentary screen time” each day. Fortunately, both Apple and Android have remote-access capabilities, where parents can control their kids’ phones. Even better, they both generate reports so you can see exactly where they’re spending their time on their devices.
