New Study: Keep the TV Out of Your Child's Bedroom

Share this post

Here's another reason to keep televisions out of your kids' bedrooms: A study from Ohio State University says, in preschoolers, TV can impair social development. ABC News reports TV can be really bad in a preschooler's bedroom (It's disruptive to sleep, it's linked with poor eating habits) And Ohio State professor Amy Nathanson says regardless of a 3-to-5-year-old's socioeconomic status - too much TV can weaken that kid's social development skills (another recommendation would be to limit the amount of time that a television is just on in the household) Even in the background, TV can be disruptive.
