Technology makes learning more engaging, helps kids connect with distant relatives, and offers fun entertainment -- but it is essential to limit screen time. Studies have demonstrated that too much device use can cause eye strain, back problems and depression as well as impair nonverbal communication and make sleeping more difficult at night.

Parents should set and enforce screen time limits for their children. Parents should select high-quality media together, co-viewing it with them to help their kids understand what they're seeing and its possible impact. Parents should also promote getting enough sleep, physical activity, and quality interpersonal social contact; though adjusting to new rules and schedules may take some time - the effort will pay off!

Kids who spend too much time staring at screens may become antisocial as they get older and may struggle to interpret nonverbal communication, and emotional cues. Adults should limit screen time as well, using phones only at specific times like before going to work or after dinner and leaving it outside their bedroom if possible. Many devices offer parental controls to set screen time limits or block certain applications and websites.
