Study discovers association between screen time and developmental setbacks in toddlers


Giving your baby a phone or tablet might seem harmless, but a new study suggests it may hinder their development. Daily screen time at age 1 can lead to developmental delays in various skills by age 2, as per a study in JAMA Pediatrics involving 7,097 children. Experts uninvolved in the study emphasize its global relevance and note that screen use could hinder interpersonal growth, as real-world interactions offer more complex social cues than screens can provide.
