SCREEN TIME LIMITS

Amid a backlash against screens, the World Health Organization has weighed in on screen time for very young children. Their advice: One hours per day max for kids under 5, and make that none at all for those under 1.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has a similar recommendation, but as the AP reported, still other experts say there’s not enough data to say definitively that screen time is inherently bad for children. One point the WHO didn’t take into account by focusing exclusively on quantity: the quality of the content that children are exposed to.
