Nickelodeon’s latest research may be a bit shocking to parents: the average kid watches 35 hours of television a week, which is almost equivalent to a full work week. The data shows that kids watch 12% more TV than they did just 9 years ago.
What’s even more surprising is that doesn’t even account for the hours spent on computers, tablets and gaming consoles, which take up an additional 25% of your children’s time.
Yet, the American Academy of Pediatrics says that kids shouldn’t spend more than 1-2 hours in front of any type of digital screen per day.
The study did reveal some good news, though, as 80% of kids would like to spend more quality time with their parents. How much TV and screen time do you allow your kids? Share with us!
