The next generation may not have to worry as much about becoming addicted to drugs as being addicted to screens.
New research suggests that youngsters are at risk of "screen addiction" because of the time they spend watching TV and playing computer games
- A study has shown that 10 and 11 year-olds have access to five screens in the average house.
- The average screen time for adolescents is 6.1 hours per day and rising.
- A child born today will have spent one full year of 24-hour days watching screen media by the age of seven.
