You check in to say good night to your son only to find he is playing "Fortnite" in bed. Or your daughter is busy texting when she is supposed to be studying. Children and their phones are inseparable today, and all that reading and playing games on their handheld devices may be harming their vision.
To reduce screen time, some parents ban phones at the dinner table. This applies to both adults and children. And in some homes, playing games or texting must stop two hours before bedtime. To put a hard stop on screen time, some moms and dads set time limits on their children's daily device use.
For example, when a total of two hours of screen time has been reached, no more texting, game playing or YouTube watching.
