Teen Health and Screen Time Overload

Dr. Jennifer Bateman from the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and Dr. Laura Scott from the Anthem Foundation address concerns of screen time overload and provide valuable tips for parents to help their teens to stay healthy, active and mindful.

60 percent of teens—those between the ages of 13 to 17—say that spending too much time online is a “major” problem facing their age group (Pew Research).

Boys & Girls Clubs of America, across its 4,300 locations nationwide, has always been committed to providing youth with health-focused programming, and in 2010 the Anthem Foundation became a co-sponsor to expand Triple Play, a health and wellness program that focuses on developing a youth’s mind, body and soul.
