The vast majority of children are screen addicted


Many parents are aware that their children are inseparable from their phones, tablets, laptops and we could list more. That is, they are screen addicts and do not notice that the outside world is excluded.

According to a survey, a child spends an average of more than four and a half hours a day on electrical devices – and only 40 minutes outdoors.

One study involving children between the ages of 6 and 16 was conducted with one hundred and five hundred parents. 63 percent of parents are very rarely able to “cheat” their children outdoors, and 22 percent are desperate to note that their child is constantly sitting in front of the screen, Hirado.hu writes.

And more than two-thirds (68%) think their children are clearly “screen-addicted”.

A poll conducted at the request of eyeglass lens maker Hoya reveals that 59 percent of parents are unaware that time spent outdoors delays the development of myopia in young people. Researchers have shown that there is a clear link between myopia and time spent outdoors in childhood.

The outdoor environment is good for children not only because it delays the development of myopia, but also prevents them from becoming addicted to the screen that parents are so worried about – read the Mirror in Article.
