How screen time effects development

As our world becomes more digital and connected online, our little ones daily habits will change. The exercise and amount of outdoor play we all enjoyed when we were young, isn't as common for todays children. Research published this year (2019) is uncovering the detrimental effects of high screen time, with one study showing higher screen time between the ages of 2 and 3 years of age was associated with delays in meeting developmental milestones at 3 and 5 years of age1. Research also showed clearly that less recreational screen time is better for avoiding obesity, and for promoting sleep, physical fitness, and cognitive, social and emotional development.
