Children are addicted to TV, passively accept the information from TV programs, parents leave their children to the TV, and finally have their own time. It seems to kill two birds with one stone, but I don’t know how harmful it is. The following editor tells you that children’s usually violent behavior is related to watching TV for a long time.

Watching TV for a long time is prone to violent behavior

Watching TV can lead to children’s violent behavior, frequent kicking, beating and crying, according to a new US study. The longer they watch TV, the more irascible they become. Even when children are not watching while TV is on, the researchers say, it can also cause them to behave grumpily, but the connection between watching TV directly and grumpy behavior is not obvious.

Researchers from New York State University said: “parents should use TV very wisely. They should strictly control their children’s watching time, pay attention to the content of TV programs, and think about how to use TV at home. ” Researchers followed 3128 women in large cities who had children between 1998 and 2000.

Two thirds of the mothers in the study said their 3-year-old children watched more than two hours of television a day, with an average of about three hours a day, and an average of five hours a day when the TV was on. Excluding factors such as living in violent communities, the length of watching TV is still related to violent behaviors such as kicking, rage, disobedience and crying.

The researchers speculate that this may be because children learn violence on television and spend less time on active task-based teaching, such as reading or playing, because they watch TV. Medical experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics suggest that children aged two and under should not watch TV, and children over the age of two should not watch TV for more than two hours a day.
