Most parents do realise that watching too much TV is harmful for their children but how much is too much?
AAP(American Academy of Pediatrics) have given some guidelines lines about screening time for children.
Guide lines given by AAP.
For children aged 18 months and under, no screen time apart from video-chatting.
For parents who choose to introduce screen time to their 18–24-month-olds, the AAP recommends choosing high-quality content and apps, and watching the content with their children.
For children aged 2–5 years, high-quality screen time should be limited to 1 hour per day.
Older children should have “consistent limits” on their screen time, with special attention to ensuring they get adequate physical activity (1 hour/day) and sleep (8–12 hours/night for school-aged children).
