Kids' screen time is a hotly debated issue in the parenting community.
But new guidelines released by a group of British pediatricians show that there's little evidence that screen time itself harmful to a child's health.
According to the guide, created by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), "There is not enough evidence to confirm that screen time is in itself harmful to child health at any age, making it impossible to recommend age appropriate time limits."
Rather than suggesting exact time limits, Dr. Max Davie, Officer for Health Promotion for the RCPCH, said, "When it comes to screen time I think it is important to encourage parents to do what is right by their family." He added, "We suggest that age appropriate boundaries are established, negotiated by parent and child that everyone in the family understands."
