Les parents des enfants de moins de 5 ans de Pyrénées Atlantiques sont-ils informés des dangers d'une utilisation excessive des écrans chez leurs enfants ?

Abstract : Screens are invading our everyday life: obesity, language delays, inability to focus, low school grades, as well as, sleep and behavioural disorders, are consequences well known, especially for children under five years old. There have been public measures put forwards, both in France and internationally that attempt to address this public health issue. Our particular study has focuses on whether the parents of children under five years old, in Pyrenees Atlantiques, felt they were informed about those risks. We have conducted an observational quantitative investigation. We distributed 3,458 surveys to these parents within pre-school located in Bearn 28.5% were in front of screens for more than 3hours on school free days; 27.9% of these children were watching screens during family meals and 34.8% during breakfast. This proportion drawn a parallel to the percentage our parents who had never been informed about the consequences of excessive usage of screens (34.8%). We could see that by informing parents on the consequences of screens on their children, we could influence the rate of their exposure. However, of the 64% of parents who believed they were aware of the effects of screens on their children; 74% of them were unable to name more than one consequence. This indicates to us that educating parents on the consequences of screen time has on their children’s health and development is the most effective preventative measure to combat this public health issue. 50% of our parents have said they would be interested in learning more about this topic.
