Feedback at 5:00: Children and Television

Posted: Updated:

Earlier this week on 9&10 News, we told you about a new study in the journal, Pediatrics, that gives parents guidance on what children should watch on TV and how often.

Researchers found kids who watch TV excessively are more likely to exhibit antisocial and criminal behavior when they become adults.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children should watch no more than 2 hours of programming per day.

A second study found that limiting how much aggressive behavior preschoolers see on television can improve their conduct.

For tonight's "Feedback at 5:00," how many hours of television do your children watch each day, and how closely do you monitor the content?
