Give Children Quality Screen Time

Parent Interventions

The amount of screen time children should be allowed and in particular TV is a heavily debated issue in all demographies. According to a recent study from University of Michigan, television is viewed as a positive tool when children watch parent-approved, educational programming with their parents.

 

Television watching, especially during meal time, is a known risk factor for obesity, especially for low income children.

 


However, the research suggests that moms enjoy the time they spend sharing quality programming with their children, especially watching their children learn.
