Need expert recommendations on managing screen time and video game use by age? We've got you covered! Digital media overuse experts at the Digital Media Treatment & Education Center have designed this resource for parents, with general recommendations broken down by age (each child is different, so these are general guidelines only). The emphasis is on discouraging ongoing, continuous screen time by ensuring that offline time is built into the child's day to make room for such important experiences as play, exercise, outdoor time, and healthy sleep.
