Researchers suggest side effects of watching too much television Do not let your kids watch television for more than 2 hours
Do your kids watch television for hours? Well, it is quite normal as small kids are so much fond of cartoon shows. But, beware! A recent research made on kids under age 3 has revealed that watching TV for more than 2 hours may put them in mental and physical risks.
The research was conducted by Professor Linda Pagni from Montreal University. In the research, they found that the kids who watch TV for more than 2 hours a day suffer slow mental and physical growth. Such kids do not only have an IQ less than the normal kids but their ability to do mathematical operations and memorizing is affected negatively. The research also revealed that it also affects the physical growth and health of kids negatively.
The research included a brief observance of psychological and socialistic problems faced by the kids in kindergarten classroom, who watch too much television.
The kids who watch TV for hours are likely to have less interest in studies and suffer several concentration disorders. The research is only of its kind and supposed to be helping to almost every parent.
Professor Linda Pagni quoted that it can be dangerous to let the kids aging 2-3 years watch too much TV for hours.
While it feels like a jail to stop our kids from watching their cartoon shows or making it limited, we should not ignore our children’s mental and physical health. It is clear from the research the research that parents need to take good care if the kids are big fan of watching cartoon shows on TV.
