UK study: Screen time ‘not harmful to children’

There is little evidence screen use for children is harmful in itself, according to guidance from leading paediatricians and published by the BBC.

Parents should worry less as long as they have gone through a checklist on the effect of screen time on their child, it says.  While the guidance avoids setting screen time limits, it recommends not using them in the hour before bedtime.  Experts say it is important that the use of devices does not replace sleep, exercising and time with family.
