When parents discuss “screen-time,” it always seems to end in a debate. Parents disagree on whether screen time is safe, how much time should be allowed, and even what constitutes screen time.

The truth is, screen time is almost inevitable in this day and age. Kids are on computers at school, use computers for homework, and of course, as a learning/leisure device at home.

Read on for the recommendations by doctors and other parents on what is an appropriate amount of screen time for kids of any age.
