A new study finds most pre-schoolers are exceeding recommendations for daily TV time.
The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents limit screen time to two hours a day. But the study of over 9,000 children found 66% of them watched more.
On average, children were exposed to four hours of screen time each weekday, mostly at home.
Kids in home-based child care watched the most TV; an average of 5.6 hours a day, with 87% of them exceeding the two hour limit.
