If your toddler would rather watch YouTube videos than play with their toys, here's some good news.

Doctors in the US have relaxed their recommendations for how much screen time little ones should have.

They used to say never let under-twos watch any TV - now they're saying 18 months is the cutoff. Unless they're chatting with mum and dad - that's okay at any age.

As for the older kids, it's down to the parents to set an example.
