Kids who stare at screens have psych problems

This sort of affirm our practice to limit TV time to an hour a day (or two hours max for those days when we really need more time for chores or a break =]):

That's terrible snowman.697 :shock:
Too much of anything can be detrimental to one's health.
My DD is 1 year old and does not watch nor like tv, except for when we play her daily flashcard lessons.

yes... my dad stares at his laptop all day long, after he comes back from work. I do use quite a bit of com but I take regular eye breaks and go swimming on wed, thurs and fri weather permitting too, so it's okay.

Thanks for the info teoman :) Have been allowing my DS close to 2 hours of Okto lately, looks like it's time to cut down.

My sister(5 yr old kid):

Morning wake up watch TV until go school.
Come home watch tv again until she sleeps or goes to play at the playground
Come home watch tv again all the way till 11pm +.

Everyday watch the same CD. Last time I slept with her, I memorised the CD contents already.><

Should go tell my mom to read the article. :P
