    Scientists have found a link between screens and issues with memory, attention, and development. They also found those who are drawn and glued to their screens have problems with communication skills, problem-solving, and social interactions. They have found those...

    Kids Are Growing Up Wired — and That’s Changing Their Brains

    Screens have not only had a big impact on our young children today but have taken a toll on our teenagers as well. Screens have a video deficit which means that children learn better from real human interactions than...

    • Dear Isabella :
      I am interested in your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children’s Brains,” because exposing kids to too much screen time has a lot of negative side effects to these kids. As the light from the phone messes with their minds and how endless hours on these screens affect kids physically.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “So when these screens mess up their sleep patterns it also takes a toll on their mental health as the brain is still so vulnerable and susceptible to change.” I think this is important because parents/guardians should see how bad a lot of screen time can harm kids and it is best to limit this time. It should be especially limited at night so they can sleep well and have no eye pain.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I liked the way you worded your information. As well as, having lots of different types of information to back-up your claim.

      I am surprised by your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children’s Brains,” because not only does too much screen time affect children mentally but also physically. It baffles me that it is more common for young individuals to have lots of screen time.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “. As well as the lighting of the screens can cause headaches and even migraine problems later in their life as well.” I think this is important because it’s a long-lasting effect on their brains. Parents should definitely limit screen time.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like that you are bringing lots of attention to this topic which isn’t explained a lot as it should be.

    • Dear, Isabella
      I am interested in your post, ¨What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children´s Brains,¨ because children who have a screen cause multiple harmful effects. This causes them to lose interaction with others by being glued to the screen.
      One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is ¨At a young age exposing your child to screen can cause numerous harmful effects such as: behavioral, social, sleep, vision, physical, and weight problems.¨ I think this is important because parents giving their kids a screen it´s causing them bad effects, it may not happen right now but later on.
      Thanks for writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next time because I like the way you stay on the topic and do not focus on something else.

    • Dear Isabelle,

      I am intrigued by your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children’s Brains,” because it is really evident today especially with the rise of technology in our society. I think exposing children to technology at a young age can affect them in many negative ways because they don’t know how to deal with it.

      One sentence you wrote that stood out for me is,”Screens emit blue light which is the equivalent to daylight when a child looks at a screen before bed it stimulates and wakes up their brain which causes troubles sleeping because their minds and their brain activity are running at peak speed which is not optimal for sleep.” This really interested me mainly because I witness this, especially with little family members of mine. Even after their eyes are off the screen, they can’t get enough of them.

      Thank you for sharing your post. It was really informative and interesting to read about because I can relate to it a lot and it is something that is evident and important in today’s society that not many people speak out on. I hope to come across more of your posts.

    • Dear Isabella,
      I am fascinated with your post “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?” because I could only imagine how screen time affects children. Every generation seems to keep getting closer and closer to their cellphones so, I wonder how these children will be affected as time goes on. 

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me is: ” In addition, they also don’t know how to interact with others in person because of their screen time and they don’t like interacting with others because of the awkwardness and uncomfortable that it brings and would rather be on a screen and limit their interactions with others dramatically.” I find this interesting because I can say that my little sister is like this. She would rather watch youtube than interact with other kids her age. I believe this is so sad because I remember when I was her age I loved nothing more than to go outside and play with my friends and cousins.
       
      Anyways, thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because overall, I learned that screen time is very effective for children and many don’t even realize it. 

    • Dear Isabella,

      I would say that i’m amazed by your posted, ¨What does Too MUch Screen Time Do to Childrenś Brains?¨ because it give us a good explain on what’s happening to your children brain while watch videos or playing video games.

      one sentence that really stood out to me would be , ¨Childhood obesity can lead to other health problems later in life such as joint problems, diabetes, and heart disease.¨ because give a the problems that happens in to kids that are always on the screen to much.

      i would love to see more of your post, thank you for writing this amazing post.

    • Dear ISABELLA:

      I found your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains,” very intriguing because I have a four-year-old brother who is addicted to his tablet and to the TV. When these devices are taken away he reacts aggressively and with anger, which is something you mentioned leading to the conclusion that he has an addiction. A four-year-old having an addiction is not good. These devices must be regulated and it is the parent’s responsibility to do so.
       
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “don’t know how to interact with others in person” and I believe this statement is on point. With all things, in order for people to do well in something they must practice and this practice applies to social interaction as well. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because the topics chosen by you relate to me, which makes it more likely for me to read your post.

    • Hello Isabella

      Thank you for this very insightful discussion in your post, “What Does Too Much Screen Do To Children’s Brains.” I have two younger sisters, and this issue concerns me very much because we live in an age where technology literacy is important yet balance is necessary. There is a dangerous line between balance and addiction when it comes to technology, and I have been affected personally by this problem.

      Your statement, “When children are glued to a screen in their early development they aren’t aware of those around them and their surroundings…” stood out to me because it is what most concerns me when it comes to my siblings’ screen time. As the eldest, I try my best to limit their time and interact with them although I find myself busy due to school.

      Thank you for bringing light to this issue. I look forward to what other very interesting and relevant topics you write about in the future!

    • Dear Isabella:

      I am surprised by your post, ¨What Does Too Much Screen Time Do To Children’s Brains¨ because it is surprising how too much screen can affect behavioral, social, sleep, vision, physical, and weight problems. This is a problem because children are too young to begin and have these affects. 

      One sentence that you wrote that stands out for me is: ¨they also don’t know how to interact with other in persons because of their screen time¨ I think this proves how it is a major problem and children are forgetting what the real world is like. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next about kids, because there are parents out there who want to help out for the good of their kids.

    • Dear Isabella, 

      I found your post, “ What Does Too Much Screen Time Do to Children’s Brains?” very interesting because I was unaware of several ways that too much screen time can affect a child. I have younger siblings and whenever they aren’t engaging with a phone they tend to get angrier and throw tantrums. It’s very unhealthy for every individual because of the amount of time it takes out of your day and the several f ways it can affect it which are very dangerous. 

      One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me is when you said, “ When children are glued to a screen in their early development they aren’t aware of those around them and their surroundings…” I feel like the reason that this stood out to me is the reason that it’s very heartbreaking t see kids on their phones or tablets instead o being outside and having fun. It’s very important for parents to take action and limit their screen time. 

      Thanks for your writing!! I look forward to what you write next because this topic interested me quite a lot. 

    • Dear Isabella,

      i am very intrigued by your post explains children’s health when it comes to electronic devices. This can create many outbursts of mental issues as well as physical. Children need to interact and have experience to become socially aware. When handling children they should be taught to be social and to be aware of the things around them.

      I think they should get more time outside and be more physical. Experiencing the most during childhood creates character. Being mentally aware vives children the problems solving skills they need to interact and solve their own problems. It also helps procesa their emotions well instead of depending on a electronic device.

      Thank you for talking about this situation because in todays generation electronic devices are everywhere. I look forward to seeing what you write about in the future.

    How do screens and screen time at a young age can affect the development of children throughout the years and impact them as the next generation?

    Screen time affects children at a young age from not being able to control their emotions to not being able to understand empathy and their first language. Before babies are able to understand verbal cues and communication they pick...

  • Caroline,
    I really enjoyed your writing, I myself have a hydro flask and I never really thought much about the contribution they have to the world. When I first bought mine I wanted a water bottle to be insulated and to keep hot things hot and cold things cold, but I didn’t really think about the plastic waste contribution like you mentioned in…Read More
