Learn what you can do about it

The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, a non-profit foundation focusing on health policy and communications, did a study that found that children ages six and under spend an average of two hours per day using screen media – about the same amount of time they spend playing outside, and which far surpassed the time they spend reading or being read to (just 39 minutes a day). The study also found that nearly half of children ages six and under have used a computer, and that just under a third have played video games.
