The rapid increase in screen media use for parents have been hypothesised to promote higher screen use in their early years children. Supervised by A/Prof Alina Morawska, Dr Amy Mitchell, and A/Prof Peter Newcombe, this study investigates a few potential mediators in promoting or impeding screen use in preschoolers, which also influence the parent-child interaction. It is aimed to bring beneficial empirical and practical implications to parents as primary role models of youngsters to engage in healthier screen media use.
