After examining 217 meta-analyses, with almost half published in just the last two years, researchers concluded it’s not the screen itself that really matters but what’s on it and the way kids use it that matter most.

Ask any parent and it’s likely they’ll tell you they’re worried about their kids’ screen time.

A 2021 poll found it was Australian parents’ number one health concern for their kids — ahead of cyberbullying and unhealthy diets. But how worried should parents be?

The information that’s out there can be confusing. Some psychologists have compared it to smoking (amid concerns about “secondhand screen time”), while others are telling us not to worry too much about kids and screens.
