Putting the brakes on child’s media intake
OKLAHOMA CITY – Kids have never been so surrounded by technology temptations and they are immersed in media like never before.
In fact, the average child spends seven hours and 38 minutes each day consuming media for fun.
Experts suggest limiting their media intake with a few simple solutions:
- Turning phones off during meals and bedtime
- Keep media out of bedrooms
- Consider a daily media blackout time
- Restrict children under 12 from using social media.
