Lashawna Williams

Faculty Sponsor: Shannon Simonovich

Background: Screen time exposure is found to be the most influential factor, contributing to developmental disabilities. However, there are limited studies to examine how parenting choices influence the amount of screen time children receive.

Objectives: The purpose of this integrative review of literature (IRL) was to identify key factors that influenced the amount of daily screen time parents allot their children.

Method: An integrative review of literature was conducted to identify the key factors influencing the amount of daily screen time parents allot their children.

Results: Of the identified key factors for screen time over-exposure, the four most supported factors were: parenting styles; self-efficacy; cultural norms; and the amount of screen time to which parents expose themselves. Suggestions for limiting screen time exposure were presented, which included restricting the locations electronic devices should be used, and parental self-monitoring for over-indulgence in screen time use.

Conclusions: This review found four key factors that influenced the amount of daily screen time parents allot their children, and subsequently provided recommendations to limit screen time exposure. However, due to the fact that electronic media is increasingly being used to educate children, future research ought to address if screen time limits should be imposed on educational programming as well.

Key Words: pediatric, screen time, parenting, and developmental disabilities.
