the screen time children spend


Senior Member
Hello everyone,

Would "spend" still work if "screen" is added before "time"?

self-made example:
Some hard and fast rules must be enforced at home when it comes to the screen time children spend every day.

Thank you!!

    Children don't "spend screen time", as far as I know. They spend time watching screens.

    "Screen time" is the time that you get to appear on the screen. You are given screen time to make public your views, if you are lucky or influential enough.
