There’s no question children today spend more time online than any previous generation – and why wouldn’t they? With thousands of hours of entertainment across platforms like Disney+, YouTube, and Twitch – and let’s not forget social media – kids today live online.
There are dangers to this, of course, whether it’s the threat of accessing inappropriate content, interacting with strangers, or just spending too much time looking at screens.
