      Toddlers exposed to increased screen time engage in fewer conversations with their parents or caregivers across various metrics. They speak less, listen less, and engage in fewer interactive exchanges with adults compared to children who spend less time in front of screens. Beyond being associated with higher rates of obesity, depression, and hyperactivity among children, screens also inhibit face-to-face interactions at home, potentially leading to worrisome long-term implications. Early exposure to more language is linked to enhanced social development, higher IQs, and improved brain function.
