UNITED KINGDOM-- Are your teenagers constantly on their phones? Do you try to calm your toddlers with a video on your iPad?
According to new research, there's little evidence to prove all that screen time is doing any harm.
The report out of the U.K. says it's impossible to recommend age appropriate time limits. Other organizations disagree. The American Academy of Pediatrics advises against any screen time for children younger than 18-months, and only one hour per day for children ages two to five. The American Heart Association reported in 2017 that screen time could even contribute to future heart disease.
Experts at the Royal College say there's no direct evidence to suggest a toxic link between screen time with heart disease, obesity and other health issues.
