Emerging technologies attract children and push parents' and caregivers' abilities to attend to their families. This article presents recommendations related to the new version of screen time, which includes time with computers, tablets, and smartphones. Recommendations are provided for screen time for very young children and those in middle and late childhood. Recommendations for screen time for adults--particularly important when adults are around their children--are included as well. In addition, the article provides information about integrating the recommendations into practice with Extension and other community audiences.
