How young do you think kids start using tablets and smartphones now? If you said age two, you’d be correct. 38-percent of children under the age of two use mobile media devices before they can speak in full sentences; they play games, watch videos or do other media-related things. One researcher notes that tablets can be great education tools but if they’re overused can cause developmental harm.

Speaking of which, a new report out from the American Academy of Pediactrics is recommending that parents should limit how much time their kids spend texting, and on the computer, and keep smartphones and laptops out of bedrooms. Screen time has been linked with violence, cyberbullying, school issues, obesity, sleep loss and other problems, and experts say the teens should be limited to just two hours of screen time each day. TWO HOURS A DAY!! Good luck in getting a teen to hit that mark!
