Hugh: Do Your Kids Have Limits on How Much Time They Spend on the Internet?
Written by Hugh Campbell on August 10, 2023
No one is suggesting that the Canadian government should follow what China is doing, but the Chinese government is considering limiting kids’ use of smartphones. Chinese law already forbids children to play online video games for more than three hours a week, and then only on weekends and holidays. The proposed law would cap phone use by teenagers to two hours a day, while younger children would be limited to one hour per day and little ones under age eight would get 40 minutes. The limits on internet use is meant to curb addictive behavior in children.
