Abstract

Young children are too often exposed to mobile devices (MD) and most of them had their own device. The adverse effects of a early and prolonged exposure to digital technology on pre-school children has been described by several studies. Aim of the study is to analyze the consequences of MD exposure in pre-school children. We analyzed the documented effects of media exposure on children's mental and physical health. According to recent studies, MD may interfere with learning, children development, well being, sleep, sight, listening, caregiver-child relationship. Pediatricians should be aware of both the beneficial and side effects of MD and give advice to the families, according to children's age. In according to literature, the Italian Pediatric Society suggest that the media device exposure in childhood should be modulated by supervisors.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 106. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 October 2022.
All research outputs
#338,538
of 22,979,862 outputs
Outputs from Italian Journal of Pediatrics
#9
of 949 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#8,412
of 328,308 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Italian Journal of Pediatrics
#3
of 18 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,979,862 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 98th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 949 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.5. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 328,308 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 97% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 18 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 83% of its contemporaries.
