Secondary Outcomes (explanation)
To help understand the potential channels of our effects we collect information on:
- Parental beliefs: subjective assessment of adequate screen time, beliefs on screen exposure and child development, beliefs on malleability of children's skills to parental investment.
- Learning of information provided in the video.
- Reasons for using screens (such as entertainment, to keep him/her busy, learning, soothing, etc.).
- Activities performed with the child and an adult: reading books, telling stories, singing songs, going outside the house, playing, counting or drawing.
Additionally, we will analyse heterogeneous effects according to:
- Background characteristics of the child and his/her households.
- Type of device used by the child for screen use.
- Caregivers' costs of limiting screens use: effort involved in reducing screen time, increasing co-viewing and controlling content (adapted from Bhalotra et al. 2020).
- Caregivers' previous knowledge of recommendations and usefulness of video.
- Caregivers' usefulness and having downloaded/read the personalized digital leaflet.
- Caregivers' risk and time preferences: from the Global Preference Survey from Falk et al. (2016 and 2018).
