The Impact of Screen Time on Child Development: Understanding the Risks and Setting Limits

In today's digital age, screens are an integral part of our daily lives. From smartphones to tablets, television to computers, screens surround us, offering endless entertainment and information. However, the increasing prevalence of screen time, particularly among children, has raised concerns about its impact on their development and behavior.

While screens offer many benefits, excessive screen time can have detrimental effects on child development and behavior. Numerous studies have highlighted its negative effects. Excessive screen time has been linked to delays in language acquisition, decreased attention span, poor academic performance, and disrupted sleep patterns. Additionally, prolonged screen exposure can contribute to sedentary behavior, leading to an increased risk of obesity and other health issues.

Building a Strong Parent-Child Friendship: A Crucial Tip for Effective Parenting

As parents, we all want to create strong bonds with our children. But have you ever considered the idea of becoming your child's best friend? It may seem unconventional, but it's an approach that can have profound benefits for both parents and children.

One of the key reasons why being your child's best friend is important is; it encourages open communication. When children feel close to their parents, they are more likely to confide in them when they face challenges or have questions. This means that when problems arise, they'll turn to you for guidance rather than seeking advice from peers who may not always offer the best solutions.

Child Safeguard and Protection consultancy and Training with Eye of the Child

The recent enactment of the Child Care, Protection and Justice Act, has provided ample space for stakeholders to fulfill their mandate in Child Care, Protection and access to Justice for Children. The law has improved the country’s systems and legal mechanism on the protection and rights of children. This law prevents and addresses issues of child abuse, abduction, trafficking, and harmful cultural practices. This is accomplished by putting together all the issues of child protection, care and justice that were in various laws and policies into one law. The law further recognizes that the primary duty of childcare rests with the parents or guardians. The provisions in this act underscored the duty of stakeholders in child protection and parents by specifically providing that parents provide care, guidance, maintenance and protection from abuse and neglect of children. It cannot be assumed that just because someone is a professional or a parent, is able to respond to a child safety and protection needs and that they have the skills or the confidence to do so as expected by the law.


Early marriages have serious consequences for the health and emotional well-being of children generally, and the girl child in particular. The consequences may be physical, intellectual, psychological and emotional in nature. They may include illiteracy, disruption of education, loss of freedom and autonomy, poverty and reproductive health problems. Apart from undermining the self-confidence and self-identity of girls, child marriages also make girls prone to physical and emotional abuse. In fact, as UNICEF suggests child brides are “likely to lead to a life of domestic and sexual subservience over which they have no control.”
