Kids and screen time

November 2, 2017

Researchers studying children and media pushed for more research into how kids are impacted by increased time in front of digital screens. Dimitri Christakis, professor of pediatrics at the UW School of Medicine, is quoted

Dr. Christakis describes the affects of screen time on younger kids through two pathways: what do kids experience and what are the experiences kids displace because of on-screen activity. He was part of a summit in Washington, D.C. looking at the impact of screen time on children.
