It Says, I Say, And So...
Kids Become Over Weight Due To More Time In Front Of A TV.
“Adolescents in Canada spend almost 35 hours a week in front of a TV or computer screen - more time than in the classroom over the course of a year.”
TV Over Sports
This kid chooses to watch TV, rather than go outside and play.(Football in his Hand)
This kid doesn't want to study, but wants to watch TV.
Chooses to Talk
This kid is on an device rather than study.(Paper to her left)
In my opinion, I think this quote is worthwhile to think about because if we think about the future, we would realize that people, mostly kids, use a device for their education or for free time, rarely going outside to have some exercise. This means that in the future people will mostly rely on technology, rather than brain power or themselves as well. This will cause kids to become more overweight in the future and also depleting their life expectancy. I feel that we should become more aware of long- term effects than short-term effects because when we look at short-term effects, we will notice that we have gained more weight, but we can also lose that weight as well, so no problem. But if we look at the long-term effects, we see that we have a reduced life expectancy as studies show. When I first read this quote, I was amazed that kids that are my age or older, spend more time in front of TV or computer screen , then spending time in a classroom. This means that this would affect their studies because of being on a device for a long period of time, doing things that are not educational, such as YouTube.
