Original title: children play mobile phone over 1 hours of mental health


According to a US study, if the children use the intelligent mobile phone, computer and television terminal electronic equipment every time more than one hour, will hurt the mental health. The longer, more damage.

Researchers at the University of Georgia and California State University of San Diego to do a survey, please more than 4.4 people aged 2 to 17 years old children's parents completed questionnaires, including children every day using the computer, mobile phone and other electronic device screen time, medical and mental health. The results showed that the survey of children per capita spend 3.2 hours a day watching TV, computer or mobile phone. Older children, look at the screen longer.

The researchers found that after the analysis of the questionnaire, one hour daily screen time is the key node affecting the health of children's psychology. Less than an hour, regardless of whether they come in contact with these electronic devices, mental health status is almost no difference. If more than one hour, the longer the more poor sense of inner happiness, the higher the risk of anxiety or depression, self-control and emotional stability is worse, curiosity is also on the decline.

The children in this association low to two body can be reflected, in children are more prominent. For example, 2 to 5 years old children, look at the screen time the elderly emotion is hard to heal than at the screen less time for children with high 46%, the probability of temper is twice that of the latter. Look at the daily screen time more than 7 hours of teenagers, the risk of depression or anxiety twice at the screen time is less than one hour.

The researchers wrote in the latest issue of "Preventive Medicine report" published the article, there is a need for children and teenagers to set the daily use of computer and mobile phone electronic terminal equipment of the time limit, in order to facilitate the development of children's mental health.
