Children and Television
July 22, 2007 11:40am CST
Many parents are concerned about what their children watch on TV. The main concern is about the content itself, because one child can jump within channels with just a flick on the remote control, going through cartoons, movies, series and even bloody bodies on the news. Television is a media that requires strong judgement over its content, and kids lacks the sense of judgement and self constraint. Thats not the only problem, kids also spend a long time watching TV. They are becoming more sedentary day after day. If you have a kid, share with us your thoughts about kids and TV, and ways to prevent its bad use.

I agree that children are watching more television than I did as a child. Its important to not sit in front of the television for countless hours. My daughter and I would discuss each show she would watch and why she couldn't watch every show her friends would watch.
