Screen Time

My pre-schooler only watches educational screen time, so that's good, right? Wrong!
Exposure to screens for children under the age of 3 years has the potential for developmental harm, impacting crucial early stages of cognitive, social and emotional growth.
  • Developmental Impact - Screen time can hinder crucial developmental milestones. Children need concrete (real) hands-on experiences for cognitive growth.
  • Eye Strain & Sleep Disturbances- Screen exposure may lead to eye strain and disrupt sleep patterns. Healthy sleep is vital for little ones!
  • Social Skills - Face-to-face interactions foster essential social skills. Screen time is solitary and will hinder the development of these crucial abilities.
  • Brain Overload - Young minds are like sponges, absorbing information rapidly. Screen exposure might overwhelm their sensitive developing brains.
  • Nature Deficit - Screen time often means less time outdoors. Connecting with nature is essential for physical and mental well-being.
  • Family Bonding - Screen time can replace valuable family time. Engaging in activities together strengthens family bonds.
You are the parent, take control - Be mindful of screen time limits.
Under 3 years : none, over 3 years maximum 2 hours PER WEEK, being 17 minutes per day.
