Current TV and Children's Books

Dinner Topics for Tuesday
Small screen, big problems
Researchers at the University of Bristol in England discovered that kids who spent more than two hours a day in front of a TV were 61% more likely to have increased psychological effects than kids who spent less time, even if they’re physically active. 
Children with more than two hours in front of the computer were 59% more likely to have those deleterious effects.
Psychological consequences included things such as emotional troubles, attention problems, difficulties with social interaction and behavior issues.
Even if the children engaged in “moderate or vigorous physical activity” for an hour or more each day, they were still more likely to suffer from these effects, although the numbers were somewhat lower (54% for TV watchers, 48% for computer watchers). 
The results were published online by Pediatrics in October 2010., 10/19/2010
