What is screen time?
“In the 1970s, the average age that children began watching television was 4 years; today, it is 5 months.” (Dr Dylan Cliff, University of Wollongong)
“Recent advances in mobile touch screen technologies, which are intuitive for young children to use, have led to the development of dedicated devices and electronic games and apps targeted at young children.” (Dr Dylan Cliff, University of Wollongong)
