When you are siting around the t.v all day without moving this can be damging to your health. You could even become obese. Several studies have found that kids with t.vs in their room are more likely to be obese. " I think that many parents are clueless about media and the impact of media on there kids."

With people

I'm usally outside with freinds. I'm riding my bike with freinds. I don't just think that the screen time is effecting kids health and school work they are also affecting our social life. Some people say that we have texting,skype,video chat. But online Relationships Are known as weak ties. Strong ties are relationships are ones face to face with people and communacating. Almost all kids are alone playing electronics and even highschoolers are socialy failing. One recent study showed that 60% of highschoolers are usally alone when playing electronics. When you have a freind that needs your help emotianly electronics will make it so then you cant reas there emotions that well. There was another study were they sent 20 students to a camp were you climb run and hang with freinds then another 20 students went to a camp and spent the whole time on ipads and t.vs and then they brought them back and the people that went to the camp that you spend with freinds were the ones that could read emotions better.
