    Screen Time

    What are your thoughts on screen time? Do you think it's a mental health hazard after a certain point?

    I think the option of decreasing screen time for young people needs to be discussed more.

    My wife and I try to limit how often our kiddos use screens, but it's still always an argument with them. Screens are awfully addictive. I try not to watch too much TV, but I use my phone too much. I guess I'm just as addicted to it as my kids are. I'm sure it's bad for our eyes and brains.

      This has become quite a big problem for both adults and children. When I was a kid, I hardly ever watched TV or played video games. Smartphones didn't exist back then obviously
      I think children should be encouraged to play outside and do things with their hands instead of staring at phones and tablets all day.‚Äč

        It's always a tricky question, isn't it? Phones these days give warning if our screen time is over the limit, but does it really help? I know it doesn't work for me. For children, I think the safest way is to just ban smartphones and tablets until a certain age. Unfortunately, this also depends on what the parents do with their gadgets and the children's activity. For example, if schools give tasks that force the students to be on screen for a long time, it's back to square one.
