Here is a brief overview of the Learning Habits study Kim discusses in  “The Soul of Discipline” Chapter 11 called Discipline in a Digital Age, containing very interesting findings relating screen use to problems with social, emotional and problem solving skill development.

“The amount of screen time a child has each day can quickly add up to have a bad effect on behavior, emotions, and academics, even though it can increase the amount of time some children spend doing homework. Researchers found grades began to decline steadily after just 45 minutes of screen time and dropped even more significantly after 2 hours. More screen time led to greater sleeping problems, too.”
