TV takes time away from human contact, social play and interaction.
Studies show that children who watch a lot of TV have difficulty with reading and
have poorer social skills when they start school.
Watching a lot of TV at a young age has been linked to attention difficulties later in
TV moves very quickly (there is a change on the screen about every 6 seconds). Real
life has a slower pace which helps children to develop their concentration skills.
Having TV on in the background can disrupt very young children’s play.
Less time for real life learning (e.g. sharing books, play) and interactions between
parents and children.
Irregular sleep schedules
An increased risk of childhood obesity.
How can we help?
One hour of quality screen time per day
Work it into your routine, e.g. after lunch or dinner
Choose programs in which characters are talking directly to your child, repeating key
words, and there are clear links between spoken words and what is happening on
Turn the TV off whilst your child is playing.
Do not allow a TV in the bedroom.
Watch TV with your child and make comments about it.
Read with your child. Have books in the home. Visit the library often.
Practice what you preach!
