Health Tip Sheet for Parents OK, so now my child has his own computer. That sounds great. So what’s the problem? The average child in the US now spends an average of 7 hours a day using computers, cell phones, televisions and other electronic devices. As screen and electronics time increases, time spent on exercise and family activities typically decreases. An increase in screen time has been shown to be linked to an increase in obesity rates. So here’s what you can do to help keep your child safe and healthy as he or she ventures into this new world of electronic education.
Limit the amount of time that your child is using the computer outside of schoolwork. The AAP recommends limiting total screen time to 2 hours daily.
Be aware of what your child is using the computer for. Know what Internet sites he is visiting and what he is doing on those sites.
Keep the bedroom as a screen free area. No televisions, cell phones or computers need to be in a child’s bedroom, especially at night.
Encourage your child to get plenty of exercise daily.
Above all, talk with your child. Discuss what she is doing with her new computer and discuss things that have absolutely nothing to do with computers. Just talk!
