Screen time report published by Association of Play Industries
A report published by the Association of Play Industries (API) shows that ‘children are choosing to spend their free time on screens instead of playing outside’.
In the A Movement for Movement report, the API states:
‘There appears to be a “rapid and dramatic” change from outdoor to indoor time, with a 50 per cent increase in children’s discretionary screen time (DST) in less than a decade. By the age of eight, the average child will have spent one full year sitting in front of a screen.’
