The digital ecosystem is changing at a faster rate than studies into the impacts of screen media on young children's development, learning, and family life. This study focuses on the advantages and disadvantages of screen media in children, with an emphasis on developmental, cognitive, social, emotional, language and physical wellbeing. The study population was consisted of parents who have children of (0-8) years who met the sampling criteria and interview guide approach was used for data collection. The evidence-based recommendations for regulating and supporting children's early media experiences are: reducing, minimizing, mindfully engaging, and modeling healthy screen usage. Recommended solution is guided by understanding how young children learn and grow. In addition to the quantity of time spent on the screen, the quality of the content, parental participation, monitoring and the presence of interactive aspects are all factors that that influence the effect of screen use on early development.
