We would like to welcome you to the “Screen free until 3” study and the associated parent program.

With “Screen free until 3”, we would like to make you aware of the dangers associated with screen media and accompany you during the first 3 years of your child’s life.

Many days of joyful anticipation lie ahead of you, during which we would like to accompany you as part of this research project. Our aim is to support you in bringing up your child in a healthy and media-competent way. To this end, we provide you with important information, letters for parents, questionnaires for self-assessment, numerous checklists and creative inspiration.

Let us surprise you! We look forward to working together for the benefit of your child!

With warm regards
Your “Screen free until 3” team

We welcome your feedback and comments on “Screen-free until 3”.
