    I believe that kids can get “sucked in” to whatever is on a screen. While their attention is focused on the screen, their bodies are still, they are quiet, and they are not actively learning or thinking, and instead passively staring at moving pictures on a screen. I don’t feel that screen time should be forbidden, and on occasion can be a nice way to unwind and have fun, however it should be in moderation and not everyday. It is mostly important that whatever children are exposed to watching be age appropriate, and other activities should be encouraged that doesn’t involve screens.
