I think that parents shouldn't limit because if they don't they won't be able to do it in the future

I accept this challenge and will be affirming the resolution: Parents should limit time on electronic devices for kids.

In today's day and age, children ages 8-15 spend about seven hours a day on electronic devices. Studies have shown that children that spend more time staring at a screen are more likely to have problems in school, sleep disorders, eating disorders, and attention problems. The internet is also a place where kid's can be exposed to drugs, violence, or explicit sexual content. By limiting time on a device children are less likely to be exposed to inappropriate content. Also, forcing children to interact with others, read a book, or go outside instead of sitting on a device has proven to help that child's developmental and cognitive abilities.

I understand what your trying to say but kids should have their own freedom so that they can learn o their own and statistic show that kid mature faster with more time on electronics and there are just some people that get addicted and that why there are family settings
