Babies can scroll before they can crawl. Kids can’t read a map, but they can navigate an iPad. And teenagers? They live on their smartphones. During the pandemic, screen time has skyrocketed. So what is the impact of excessive screen time on childhood? And what can we do about it? In Kids Vs. Screens popular science broadcaster Dan Riskin explores the latest research to discover how “digital babysitters” affect children’s development, learning abilities and mental health. Dan, a father of three young kids himself, seeks advice from top experts, as he takes viewers everywhere from a hospital brain lab to a kindergarten classroom.
