“We were surprised to find that playing outside did not actually change the negative impact of screen time on communication, but it did affect daily living skills,” the researchers said.

The researchers came to these conclusions after observing 885 children aged 18 months to four years. They looked at the relationship between a child’s average screen time at age two, the amount of outdoor play at two and eight months, and neurodevelopmental outcomes at age four.

They found that playing outdoors can reduce the harmful effects of screen time on skills of daily living by 20%. In addition, the researchers found that socialization skills improved in four-year-olds who spent more time outside at two years and eight months old.
