More Screen Time Associated with Decreased Fine Motor Skills

Teachers and therapists continue to report that when they observe young children, motor skill development is lacking. Some hypothesize that this is due to an increase in screen time instead of open-ended free play outside of the school day or prior to entering the school system.
