Screen Time – More Evidence

Whilst the research behind this piece appears to need more work to understand the results, it indicates a clear correlation and relationship between ‘screen time’ and attention problems in children.

Instinctively, this is something I have long believed and has been behind my understanding with my own son right since he was little for a finite amount of screen time per day (1 hour on week days, 1 1/2 hours at weekends).
