Health Tip: Limit a Young Child's Media Time

(HealthDay News) -- Young children are drawn to the ever-growing number of screens around the home.

But the American Academy of Pediatrics says parents should take steps to limit screen time, noting that too much of it means:

  • Kids may have a harder time falling asleep, as they are overstimulated.

  • Kids may develop problems with language, attention, thinking and social skills, because they don't interact as much with other people.

  • Kids may become overweight or obese, because they're spending less time playing.

  • Kids may develop behavior problems, as they try to imitate what they see on a screen.
