What is screen time?

Screen time is the time behind a screen

Screen time is the time you spend watching a screen, whether it's a tablet, laptop, phone or television. The screen time is mainly something parents set up for their children: they don't want the child to sit behind one of these devices all day long and therefore set a time in which children are allowed to spend behind a screen. Children of this time do not know better, they grow up with the use of tablet, smartphone or television. And the digitization of life does not necessarily have to be bad, it can also be an educational development. There is of course a difference between playing games or watching a vlog and looking up information for a workpiece or speech. Many parents also make the difference between useful screen time and screen hang. Every child is of course different, so it is difficult to draw up guidelines that apply to every child, but it can certainly help to have clear agreements. For children under 8 years of age, the directive is about 1 hour per day, preferably distributed over several times. In children up to 12 years of age, it is usually about 2 hours of display time.
