City of Science to host scientific lecture entitled “Children and the Screen”

The City of Science in Tunis will host a scientific lecture on June 20, 2018, it reported on its website.

The awareness-raising lecture entitled “Children and the Screen” will be given by Dr. Sami Osman, a specialist in pediatric psychiatry.

The lecturer will discuss the impact of child addiction to the screens on their psychological health, its implications for their mental development, and ways to treat this addiction.

What impact do screens have in case of misuse on the cognitive and psychological development of our children?

This issue, which is of growing concern to parents, is now debated in societies, especially in the light of recent research in child psychiatry and neuroscience.

TV screens, computer screens, tablets or smartphones, when used excessively expose children to major risks such as those related to weight gain, language delay, and attention deficit.

How can we fight these risks and prevent our children from this new form of addiction in modern times?

This is what will be learnt from the lecture that will be given by Dr. Sami Othman, said the same source.
