IANS  |  New Delhi 

Exposure to learning tools are bringing positive behavioural changes and encouraging improvements in kids aged between 1.5 to 8, a study conducted by AppyStore, a subscription-based app for curated learning content for children, has found.

According to the study, around 28 per cent of parents allowed their children unrestricted screen time and found this had a positive behavioural change and encouraged improvement. A similar view was expressed by around 23 per cent parents who allowed their a maximum screen time of 30 minutes to their children.

"In today's age learning tools give exposure to kids across ages, not only bringing a change in their behaviour but also bringing an overall development in the kids," said Prachi Chitre, Child Psychologist at AppyStore.

To help guide parents - many of whom struggle with their own dependence on digital devices AppyStore research suggested that balanced and guided screen time is important for kids' overall healthy development.
