It is worthwhile promoting good screen time behaviours when children are young

Experts recommend monitoring and restricting daily screen time for your child. This is partly because real-life interactions with you and others are much healthier for your child’s wellbeing, learning and development. Limits mean looking at the time your child spends on screens and making sure it doesn’t interfere with sleep and activities that are good for their development. Having a set of expectations and even a family plan for screen use are positive ways to start monitoring their use. The links provided here provide recommendations you may find useful.
