HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

Physical distancing measures pushed a lot of education, socialization, and recreation online, meaning many children and young people have been spending six or more hours a day on screens throughout the pandemic. But even before, a lot of them were already exceeding guidelines and recommendations for screen time use. This document summarizes the latest evidence on the mental health impacts of screen use and highlights ways screen time can be managed to reduce negative effects.
