According to a survey by the organization ParentsTogether, nearly half of the respondents’ children currently spend more than six hours per day online, whereas only 8.29% of children were before. 26% of kids spend more than 8 hours online compared to 4% previously. However, the American Academy of Pediatrics discourages screen use before the age of 18 months and recommends one hour per day of quality programming for 2- to 5-year-olds, as well as consistent limits for older children. Despite these recommendations, we are aware that both children and parents often spend more time in front of devices than the recommended limit, and children are becoming addicted to smartphones early on.
A Home Experiment That Reveals The Issue Of Screen Overuse
The Co-Founders of the company behind this invention (Bagby) understood that parenting during COVID-19 was becoming even a bigger challenge. For this reason, they conducted a home experiment featuring their own 14-month old daughter, Luna. The results are alarming and reveal the truth about smartphone addiction in young children. This is why they decided to build something that could be a physical reminder to help other parents reduce their family’s screen time, and more importantly, increase their quality family time.
