Limiting Your Child's "Screen Time"
TROY -- There is new proof that electronic features like "FaceTime" have replaced actual face-to-face time. Research shows the average child spends more than eight hours a day on some type of screen from TV to tablets.
"Social interaction, I want to have face-to-face time with my kids," said Troy mom, Andrea Wackler.
But eight-year-old Jake and six-year-old Gianna still get their own electronic media time, one hour a day to play games on the iPod or iPad.
"I have to limit it and we have to make sure they grow up and mature in a different way then just on video games," she said.
According to a new study by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Andrea's "screen time" limitations are on point.
Researchers say kids should spend no more than two hours a day watching TV or playing on an electronic device. But the study found most parents aren't regulating screen time. Turns out most kids are spending almost eight hours a day in front of a screen.
"It's so easy, it's an easy parenting trick to just give them this, but it's not parenting. It makes me really sad there there are kids that are just using this and there isn't physical activity going on," Wackler said.
That's why she encourages her kids to find fun in other activities that they all can enjoy as a family. And she hopes other parents do the same.
