Melbourne: Paediatricians have suggested that parents should impose `curfew` on their child`s technology-time and restrict his or her media use to two hours a day.

Steve Hambleton, president of Australian Medical Association, asserted that children were growing obese because they spend too much time sitting in front of screens, News.com.au reported.

Hambleton also warned that kids were watching pornography and violence on smart phones.
Hambleton also urged parents to keep TV`s and the internet out of their kids` bedrooms and asked doctors to question parents about their children`s media use during health checks.
