    Watching Television is Bad for Children

    Watching Television is Bad for Children

    How much do you care about your Children's development..?
    **TV can cause the developing mind to experience unnatural levels of stimulation ------------> Dr Dimitri Christakis


    Experts say Children under two should not be allowed to watch any TV, experts say after study over 1,345 children in Children's Hospital.

    Older children should watch no more than 2 hours a day, the researchers at the Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Centre in Seattle said.

    Each hour in front of the TV increased a child's chances of attention deficit disorder by 10%, their research in the Pediatrics journal showed.

    The study of 1,345 children showed three hours TV a day made children 30% more likely to have the disorder.

    "The newborn brain develops very rapidly during the first two to three years of life. It's really being wired."

    Children who were exposed to the unrealistic levels of stimulation at a young age continued to expect this in later life, leading to difficulty dealing with the slower pace of school and homework, he said.

    "TV can cause the developing mind to experience unnatural levels of stimulation," Dr Dimitri Christakis said.

    Rapid image changes make it worse :------------------>
    This was made worse by the rapid image change that television makers used to keep young children interested, Dr Christakis added.

    Parents were questioned about their children's viewing habits and asked to rate their behaviour at age seven on a scale similar to that used to diagnose attention deficit disorders.

    The youngsters who watched the most television were more likely to rank within the top 10% for concentration problems, impulsiveness, restlessness and being easily confused.

    Television is an ever-present form of entertainment and information in modern society. Although there are many excellent educational programs, I believe that television may not be good for children.
