Children at risk from screen 'addiction', warns psychologist

The amount of time children spend in front of screens should be curbed to stave off development and health problems, an expert says.

Psychologist Dr Aric Sigman says children of all ages are watching more screen media than ever, and starting earlier.

The average 10-year-old has access to five different screens at home, he says.

And some are becoming addicted to them or depressed as a result, he warns.
