Children and Electronics – level 2

11-01-2022 15:00

An agency in the UK reports that children are using electronic devices more and more. Some 3 to 4-year-old children use a tablet over an hour a day.

Some 12 to 15-year-old children spend many hours a week on the Internet, and many use their phones in bed.

A psychologist said that parents need to set rules when and where their children can use their devices. One mother said she often argues with her children about it.

There is no ideal limit to using electronic devices, but the advice is to keep it low.

Difficult words: electronic devices (video games, phones, tablets, laptops, etc.), ideal (perfect for everybody), advice (saying that somebody should or should not do something).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
