There is new pandemic fallout involving many of our kids, according to a new study.
A new study says that since the start of the pandemic, adolescents have nearly doubled their screen time on their electronic devices.
University of California researchers looked at more than 5,000 children ages 10 to 14 years old.
They say kids spend almost eight hours a day in front of a screen. That's twice the pre-pandemic estimate of four hours.
It does not include time for virtual school classes.
