Supporting parents and children 0-6 years

Zone’in Fact Sheet

 

A research review regarding the impact of technology on child development, behavior, and academic performance.

 

Infants watch 2.5 hours per day of TV, children use 7.5 and teens 9 hours per day of entertainment technologies (cell phone, TV, internet).
39% of parents use 11 or more hours per day of screen media during their leisure time.
30% of children will enter kindergarten developmentally vulnerable.
25% of children are obese in Canada, 30% in the U.S.
14.3% of children in Canada have been diagnosed with a mental illness.
Canada is 13th and U.S 27th on world stage in math, science and reading (2012 PISA), and half of grade eight students do not have job entry literacy.
Elevated background TV exposure over time increases behavioural scores of 18-month-old toddlers.

 

The ways in which we are educating and raising our children with technology are no longer sustainable.
