Children and TV — the effects


source : http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/children-and-tv/MY00522

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends limiting a child’s use of TV, movies, video and computer games to no more than one or two hours a day. Too much screen time has been linked to:

* Obesity. Children who watch more than two hours of TV a day are more likely to be overweight.
* Irregular sleep. The more TV children watch, the more likely they are to resist going to bed and to have trouble falling asleep.
* Behavioral problems. Children who watch excessive amounts of TV are more likely to bully, have attention problems, and show signs of depression or anxiety than children who don’t.
* Impaired academic performance. Elementary students who have TVs in their bedrooms tend to perform worse on tests than those who don’t.
* Less time for play. Excessive screen time leaves less time for active, creative play.
