Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital http://news.stlpublicradio.org en How Much Screen Time Is Too Much For Kids? http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/how-much-screen-time-too-much-kids <p>At every well-child visit SLUCare pediatrician Matt Broom conducts, he asks two questions. First he asks about the amount of time the child spends in front of screens each day. Then he asks whether or not the child has a television and Internet connectivity in his or her bedroom.</p><p>The goal, <a href="http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/126/5/1012.full">as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics</a>, is to keep screen time in communal areas and limit screen time to two hours a day. For children under the age of two, the Academy recommends no screen time at all.</p> Thu, 20 Feb 2014 22:26:24 +0000 Camille Phillips 33872 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org How Much Screen Time Is Too Much For Kids?
