Top best answers to the question «When can kids watch tv»

The consensus among experts is that limited screens and TV viewing are safer to introduce around the age of 18 months. That said, the AAP guidelines state that parents who want to introduce their 18- to 24-month-old to screens should do so together, and with high-quality programming and apps.

  • Babies shouldn’t watch TV or use screen-based media, the AAP says. It’s okay to introduce small amounts of high-quality, supervised screen time to toddlers after 18 months, but if you can wait until your child turns 2, that’s even better. From ages 2 through 5, you should cap media use to no more than an hour a day, says the AAP.
