Parents have trouble taking kids off screens 父母很难让孩子离开电子屏幕

一项为慈善机构“儿童行动”所作的调查发现,英国的许多父母发现让自己的孩子去做作业比让他们关掉手机、笔记本电脑或电视更容易。以下是 BBC 罗伯特•皮戈特的报道。

Action for Children questioned 2,000 parents and found that almost a quarter struggled to restrict their children's screen time. In comparison, only about a fifth said they found it difficult to persuade children to eat healthily or go to bed on time. Homework was a problem for only one in ten parents.

Recent research from Cambridge University found that long periods in front of a screen undermined children's performance in exams. An extra hour every day of screen time at the age of 14, correlated with a lower score at GCSE at the age of 16, equivalent to two grades.

Action for Children said unplugging youngsters from electronic devices was also important to build strong relationships with parents which made children better able to communicate with adults and less susceptible to bullying or abuse outside the home.
