‘People better start listening’: WHO introduces strict guidelines for children

Children under the age of one should not be allowed to watch TV or use smartphones under strict new World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines.

WHO advises children between the ages two and four should not be exposed to any screens for longer than an hour per day.

They say too much screen time is harming children’s social skills and development.

He tells Ben the difference between a boy’s and a girl’s brain.
