Reducing screen time requires a plan B to avoid problems with small children.
Screens and vacations are a child’s dream, with hours of play and browsing on the Internet. However, all experts recommend avoiding excessive use of these.
According to a study published by the Chilean Academy of Pediatrics, “Increased screen time is associated with poor school performance”: Chilean men and women spend 5 to 6 hours screen every day.
This means that we spend over a third of our waking hours in front of our TV or other type of device.
“It is very important to be aware of the short-term and long-term risks to the health of minors,” said Pamela Castro, marketing manager at LG Electronics.

And visual fatigue has become a recurring problem in recent years, especially as a result of constant exposure to monitors, which increases as children grow up at school.
For this reason, it is the adult’s job to set limits on use so that children can take advantage of life outdoors. According to Castro, there are certain strategies fathers can use.
– Set a specific usage time. It should be as inflexible as possible, as restrictions must be respected.
– Create a screen-unusable space: especially during meals.
– Find out what they are looking at: Ideally, access educational content and avoid games that expose you to stressful situations.
– Trying to let children under 3 years old use the screen: Any time you can spend on these devices can be used for manual work that further develops your abilities and senses.
– Be a role model as an adult: Try to use your phone less when you are together, for example while driving or sharing with your family.
It is also important to ensure that your TV screen is certified as a low blue light product by a global testing agency to reduce visual impairment for children and adults.
