Children may spend more hours with screens during school holidays than during school days.
During school days, children typically spend a significant portion of their day at school and engaged in extracurricular activities such as sports or clubs, which limits their screen time. On the other hand, during holidays, children may have more free time and fewer structured activities, which can lead to more screen time.
However, it’s worth noting that excessive screen time can have negative effects on a child’s health and development, regardless of whether it occurs during school days or holidays. It’s important for parents and caregivers to set reasonable limits on screen time and encourage children to engage in other activities, such as reading, outdoor play, and spending time with friends and family.
