1 minute, 21 seconds Read

Children differ in their needs, and so is screen time. To monitor the screen time one can buy a tv that has sleep time. Many TV wholesale shops sell this type of tv. Nevertheless, there are general recommendations. we recommend the following durations for daily media use for children from zero to ten years of age:

0–3 years: ideally no screen media, no more than 30 minutes of listening media, regular viewing and reading of books.

3–6 years: a maximum of 30 minutes in front of the screen, a maximum of 45 minutes of listening to media, regular viewing and reading of books

6–10 years: a maximum of 45-60 minutes of screen media, a maximum of 60 minutes of audio media, regular reading, or reading.

And for older children and adolescents, the following guidelines are recommended:

10–12 years: one hour a day or seven hours a week.

13-14 years: 1.5 hours per day or 10.5 hours per week.

15–16 years: two to 2.5 hours per day or 14–17.5 hours per week.

At the same time, however, these recommendations are only intended as a guide, exceptions are allowed and families are best to lay down rules that everyone normally follows.


Of course, audio and video media have become an integral part of our everyday lives. This also applies to the lives of our children. Technical devices play a major role, especially among friends and at school. 

Therefore, it does not make sense to let your child grow up completely far from any screen media. However, the measure is very important. In any case, you should think in advance about the alternatives you can offer your child if the screen time is used up again.
