Dr. Nicole Beurkens, secondhand screen time creates health concerns for kids

Dr. Nicole Beurkens is the leader of digital safety and wellbeing for kids and families and a brand ambassador at Qustodio. Secondhand screen time is legit, and it’s being dubbed the “new” secondhand smoking. Thirty years after the EPA warned about the dangers of secondhand smoke, research now shows that people are addicted to their screens and without even realizing, adult screen time is having a negative impact on their kids. Dr. Beurkens is a licensed clinical psychologist and board certified nutritionist, and specializes in evaluation and treatment of children with serious developmental and emotional health conditions.
