Research Presentation: Amount of screen time is associated with children’s delay of gratification

May 01, 2017

A lab milestone at the 2017 UC Davis Undergraduate Research Conference: Thalia Tom (left) is the first person from the DESC lab to present preliminary data on young preschool-age children’s self-regulation. Her poster presentation shows that young children who use mobile “screen time” media show lower levels of delay-of-gratification skills (e.g., patiently waiting for a tempting gift) than young children who do not use mobile media. Congratulations, Thalia, on your hard work and contributions to the DESC Lab!
