Families and screen-time use during the time of COVID-19

April 28, 2020

With more than 95% of Americans under stay-at-home instructions in the COVID-19 pandemic, most schools and families have turned to on-line technology to continue children’s education and also to maintain broader social and family connections. But, as computers
assume an ever more central role in work, play, school and social life, parents are eager to help their children find the right balance between screen time and other activities and to understand both the promise and perils of an on-line childhood. This is
a matter of pressing importance in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please join us in cosponsoring H.R. 1367, the Children and Media Research Advancement Act (CAMRA Act), bipartisan and bicameral legislation that will help us understand how the dramatic
changes in technology and media are affecting children’s physical and mental development.
