Television and School Performance

Another study has been released showing the negative consequences of children watching TV. This study concludes with the following statement:

We found a strong, independent relationship between measures of exposure to media and poor school performance. The findings in this study add support to the recommendation that parents of young adolescents limit not only the amount but also the content of their child's media exposure. Specifically, our data support the recommendation that parents limit weekday television and video game time to 1 hour and restrict access to adult media by limiting exposure to cable movie channels and R-rated movies and videos.

The Study has been published in Pediatrics:
