Doctors have new warnings about kids' internet use

The American Academy of Pediatrics is now including internet use in its long-standing policy of limiting screen time to two hours a day. Previously, that time limit referred only to TV.

Now, doctors warn screen time on social media watching movies and playing internet games can all cause problems like obesity, lack of sleep, and cyber-bullying.

Doing online homework, however, is an exception.
