Background: Digital media exposure (DME) has been linked with negative physical, behavioral and neurocognitive effects in children. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) currently recommends limiting DME time to less than two hours daily for children over age two. Childhood “flourishing,” or overall positive well-being, has been evaluated by various markers, including those related to diligence, initiative, task completion, and interpersonal relationships. Objectives: To describe the relationship between daily DME that is not schoolwork related among children between 6-17 years and the parental perception of their child’s frequency of homework completion, a measure of childhood flourishing. Methods: This cross-sectional study used data from the 2011-2012 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH), a nationally representative sample of children aged 0 to 17 years (n= 95,677). Using an analytic sample of children aged 6-17 (n=64,647) the main exposure was parent or guardian report of the number hours of their child’s average daily DME, categorized in two hour intervals (0 to < 2 hours, 2 to < 4 hours, 4 to < 6 hours, and ≥6 hours per day). The relationship between daily DME and parent or guardian-reported frequency of homework completion (always/usually, sometimes/rarely/never) was examined using multivariable logistic regression after controlling for demographic and socioeconomic covariates. Results: Among children aged 6-17 years, only 31.3% were exposed to < 2 hours of daily DME per the AAP recommendations. 36.5% were exposed to 2 to < 4 hours, 16.8% were exposed to 4 to < 6 hours, and 15.4% were exposed to ≥6 hours daily. Homework completion was reported as always/usually for 87.6% of children. In the adjusted model, the odds of children always or usually completing their homework were 0.76 (95% confidence interval [CI] 0.64-0.90) for children with 2 to < 4 hours of DME daily, 0.51 (95% CI 0.42-0.61) for those with 4 to < 6 hours daily, and 0.37 (95% CI 0.31-0.44) for those with ≥6 hours daily compared to those with < 2 hours. Conclusions: This study provides evidence that, among school aged children, there is a dose-response relationship between daily DME and parent-reported frequency of homework completion. These data should be considered as the AAP continues develop evidence-based guidelines and policy statements regarding digital media use. An ongoing study by the same authors is examining the relationship between daily DME and other measures of childhood flourishing.
