What Parents Need to Know about Toddlers & Screen Time (Spanish)

Published 6th May 2022

A free online safety guide on toddlers and screen time.

The toddler years are full of excitement, exploration and energy. It’s a critical time in children’s development, when brain connections are rapidly forming. Youngsters often begin to discover devices around this age, as they learn to communicate with friends, play games and watch videos (Ofcom recently found, for example, that one in five 3–4-year-olds in the UK uses social media). These activities can make a child happy and relaxed but have a damaging impact if overused. Setting screen time limits for toddlers can be a challenge, so we’ve pulled together some suggestions for making sure your little one is interacting with the online world in a safe, healthy way.

In the guide, you'll find tips such as setting parental controls, removing devices at certain times and using screentime as a reward.
