CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — With kids on holiday break, It can be tempting to let children spend extra time in front of the TV or some type of smart device.

It is also recommended to only allow children between 2-5 years old one hour of screen time a day, but doctors says many parents are ignoring that recommendation.
