Turn Off the TV       Archived

  

For many children, television has become a babysitter and a best friend. A recent CDC study in one state found that nearly one in five two-year-olds watched two or more hours of TV each day, and a similar proportion have a TV in their bedroom. Excessive TV viewing by young children can result in impaired cognitive, language, and emotional development; irregular sleep schedules; and obesity. In this podcast, Dr. John Oh discusses how to curb kids’ enthusiasm for too much TV. Created: 7/22/2010 by MMWR. Date Released: 7/22/2010. Series Name: A Cup of Health with CDC.
