Children under the age of two, compared to two decades ago, spend more time watching television and smart PCs like cell phones, iPads and tablet.
The findings of a recent study by the American Society of Medical Education show that in 1997, children under the age of two were watching for an average of one and a half hours a day, but this average age group now has an average of more than three hours Just watch other TVs or smartphones.
Given the fact that children’s brain develops rapidly and significantly in the early years of life, scientists worry that, in addition to contacting these pages that could negatively affect the growth and functioning of the brain of the brain, the content they are watching It can also be a concern.
Recent research has shown that the high level of children’s exposure to television and smartphones may delay their brain development and affect cognitive skills, language learning, social and emotional affinities. Findings from this study have also shown that obesity and children’s sleep problems are largely due to their excessive exposure to television and other smartphones.
Scientists in another study found that prolonged entertainment for children and young people with Facebook, Instagram, Sentinel Chat and other social pages would lead to sleep problems and certain depression symptoms.
The American Academy of Pediatrics ordered in 2016: Children under the age of 18 should not have to deal with smart TVs and smartphones at all. Children from 18 to 24 months, for a short time, have been watching their high-quality videos by selecting their parents. And children between two and five years watch videos of great content and quality just one hour a day.
