Good affects on watching TV

It is hard to avoid television if you are a kid. People in the house are usually tuned in to TV - siblings as well as parents. In some homes, the television is perpetually "on" even without anyone watching. It is common for parents and caregivers to use TV as a substitute babysitter. Also, many parents buy videos that they think can make their kids smart. But how does watching TV really affect children?

Bad affects on watch TV

  • two-thirds of infants and toddlers watch a screen an average of 2 hours a day
  • kids under age 6 watch an average of about 2 hours of screen media a day, primarily TV and videos or DVDs
  • kids and teens 8 to 18 years spend nearly 4 hours a day in front of a TV screen and almost 2 additional hours on the computer (outside of schoolwork) and playing video games.Kids who view violent acts are more likely to show aggressive behavior but also fear that the world is scary and that something bad will happen to them.
