The prevalence of childhood obesity was significantly lower among those whose mothers determined how much TV they could watch The prevalence of childhood obesity was not significantly affected if the father or child made the decision. Table 5 demonstrates that there were no significant associations between obesity and the rate of exercising, whether at school, home, or outdoors.
Violence on television affects children negatively, according to psychological research. The three major effects of seeing violence on television are: Children may become less sensitive to the pain and suffering of others.
Children may be more fearful of the world around them. Children may be more likely to behave in aggressive ways toward others Imitation is a high human element, especially among the young.
Just one publicised school shooting, in my view, leads to imitation. The average American child will have watchedacts of televised violence, including depictions of murder, by the time he or she finishes sixth grade approximately 13 years old.
We live in an era where both parents are often working and children have more unsupervised time. It is essential that you make time for children and regularly inform yourself of their day to day experiences, including while they are at school if they attend school.
If you think wall to wall violence on TV has no effect, why would you imagine that one-minute adverts in the breaks do have an effect? They also showed that children who watch a lot of television are more likely to think that the world is a mean and dangerous place.
Children often behave differently after they've been watching violent programmes on television. In one study done at Pennsylvania State University, about pre-school children were observed both before and after watching television.
Some watched cartoons that had many aggressive and violent acts; others watched shows that didn't have any kind of violence. The researchers noticed real differences between the children who watched the violent shows and those who watched non-violent ones.
Children who watched the violent shows were more likely to strike out at playmates, argue, disobey authority and were less willing to wait for things than those children who watched non-violent programmes.
Now, there were females on television who were in control, aggressive and were not dependent upon males for their success. Conventional wisdom might suggest this phenomenon would have a positive impact on younger female viewers.
Huesmann's research states that young girls who often watched shows featuring aggressive heroines in the s, have grown up to be more aggressive adults involved in more confrontations, shoving matches, choking and knife fights than women who had watched few or none of these shows.
One example cited by Huesmann is that 59 percent of those who watched an above-average amount of violence on television as children, were involved in more than the average number of such aggressive incidents later in life. Huesmann says that ages six to eight are very delicate and critical years in the development of children.
Youngsters are learning social behaviour that will last them throughout their life. In the early seventies, Tannis Macbeth Williams and other researchers from the University of British Columbia compared the levels of aggression in first and second graders from two Canadian towns, one with access to TV and one, due to a mountain range, with no TV access.
When the mountain town finally received television, the hitting, biting, and shoving levels of the children increased by percent. They found that watching violence on television is the single factor most closely associated with aggressive behaviour-more than poverty, race, or parental behaviour.
InEron embarked on a landmark longitudinal study of over eight-year-olds. He found that children who watched many hours of violent television tended to be more aggressive in the playground and the classroom.
Eron and Huesmann checked back with these students 11 and 22 years later.Nov 16, · Boston International Kids Film Festival To Present Over 50 Films Made For, By and About Kids by TV News Desk - November 16, With . What to watch: The best children's television By Darienne Hosley Stewart Allowing your child to have a little tube time isn't a parenting crime, as long as you're careful not to let TV gobble up more than its share of your child's precious waking hours.

Television and Children. Why and to what extent should parents control their children’s TV watching? There is certainly nothing inherently wrong with TV.
The problem is how much television a child watches and what effect it has on his life. Research has shown that as the amount of time spent watching TV goes up, the amount of time devoted not.
