Screentime and Kids

Recent studies of children in the United States have shown more than half of toddlers and three-quarters of preschoolers, regularly access mobile apps. 

While apps engage toddlers and give parents a break, the use of apps by children can be difficult to stop. Persuasive design technology keeps children looking at the screen longer and longer, and if adults find it difficult to pull away from their screens, what chance do children have?

Sumudu Mallawaarachchi, a PhD candidate at the School of Psychology at Deakin University, explains how apps are engaging children with persuasive design.
