If you get used to letting your child play on a smartphone for at least 30 minutes a day, the risk of having a tongue-related disorder is nearly 50%, according to a new study of 900 children aged 6 months and two years.
Research by pediatricians at the Canadian Children’s Hospital suggests that using smart devices by young children could lead to delays in language development, writes Time.com.
“The results obtained from this study are worth studying in depth,” draws attention to Dr. Jenny Radesky, a member of the American Pediatric Association.
Parents should make time for little ones and interact more with them, communicate so that the child learns basic language knowledge.
Excessive use of phones can also lead to sleep disturbances, both in adults and children, due to artificial light that sends bad signals to the brain.
The findings of the study were presented at the annual congress of the Academic Pediatric Society.
