Health Tip: Minimizing Violence During Screen Time

Kids see violence everywhere, especially from TV, movies and video games. So how can parents “minimize” what their kids see?

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:

  • Don’t allow children under age 6 to see any violence.
  • Play the video game with your child, or watch the show or movie together. This helps you understand what the child watches and offers a chance to talk about the values you share as a family.
  • If you are not comfortable with what your child sees, do not be afraid to impose restrictions.
