As summer vacation rolls on, you might find your children are looking for things to do. They've been to the pool or camp, so what next? Often, their first choice is screen time — watching TV, playing video games or connecting with friends via social media. A 2017 UNICEF report surveyed the online experiences of children around the world. This report found that children represent 1 in 3 internet users worldwide. The dangers of too much screen time for children can include behavioral and sleep problems, obesity and loss of social skills.
On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Angela Mattke, a pediatrician at Mayo Clinic, will cover recommendations for kids and screen time, along with other pediatric health topics. Also on the program, Dr. Simon Kung, a psychiatrist at Mayo Clinic, will explain how transcranial magnetic stimulation is used to treat depression. And Dr. Kevin Arce, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon at Mayo Clinic, will discuss reconstructive surgery for oral cancer patients.
