Big New Year’s Resolution is Less Screen Time
DES MOINES, Iowa – Experts are advising people to use less screen time as a New Year's resolution. According to a study done by Lancet children between eight and 11 who spend more than two hours in front of a screen each day were associated with lower cognitive functions. This is from children using smartphones, tablets, and computers. The study suggests that using social media and a phone does not help with a child’s attention span, memory, and classroom performance.
