(HealthDay News) -- Young children are drawn to the ever-growing
number of screens around the home.
But the American Academy of Pediatrics says parents should take
steps to limit screen time, noting that too much of it means:
- Kids may have a harder time falling asleep, as they are
- Kids may develop problems with language, attention, thinking
and social skills, because they don't interact as much with other
- Kids may become overweight or obese, because they're spending
less time playing.
- Kids may develop behavior problems, as they try to imitate what
they see on a screen.
