Screen Time Resources

Upon much request, here are some resources, articles and research you can share with friends and family in terms of the effects of screen time on our youth!

Current Screen Time Recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics:

  • For children under 18 months old, no screen time.
  • For children 18 to 24 months old, parents should choose only high-quality media and watch it with their child.
  • For children 2 to 5 years old, less than one hour per day of high-quality programming is recommended, with parents watching along.
