Now that school is out for the summer, your kids may be getting used to all their free time. But experts say it's important to make sure that free time doesn't turn into "screen time."
If the kids are spending that time playing video games or sitting in front of a computer or TV, you might need to reconsider how much time you’re letting them do that.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends kids spend no more than two hours a day on cellphones, computers, video games, TVs and tablets.
Iowa State University researchers recently found parents who monitor their child’s total screen time have children who sleep more, do better in school and behave less aggressively.
The key is not only setting the rules, but enforcing them, which may mean parents having to go that extra mile. Watch our video to hear more about this.
Doctors say you may even try teaching your kids some of the games you played as a child, back when there were no electronic devices to get in the way.
