Did You Know?
A recent survey revealed that young children were experiencing eye strain, headaches and lost sleep at least 6 months before the parents decided to seek help as a result of the complaints. The children's complaints ranged from having headaches after prolonged screen time, noticeable mood shifts before bed and in the morning, and even changes in dietary habits from being overtired.
During that time, parents thought the complaints were "minor," "not very often," and generally disregarded by the parents as "normal."
Children are averaging 6-8 hours of screen time per day on average. One hour of unprotected screen time may be enough to throw off the circadian rhythm for that evening!
