Kids were glued to their screens during the pandemic.
According to FOX News, Data from the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) study shows screen time went up from 3.8 hours a day to 7.7 hours. Kids spent their time multiple-player gaming, single-player gaming, texting, social media, video chatting, browsing the internet and watching or streaming movies, videos, or television shows.
An important takeaway from the study? Mental health took a hit and kids became more stressed. Social skills and coping behaviors improved when children walked away from their screens.
