T.V. Trouble

According to the Kaiser Foundation, 68 percent of eight- to 18-year-olds have a TV in their bedroom. Yet multiple studies have shown that having a television in a child’s bedroom can lead to obesity, sleep problems, and poor school performance.

For example, a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins and Stanford University showed that children with TVs in their bedrooms scored significantly lower on school achievement tests than children without TVs in their bedrooms. Another study by the American Academy of Pediatrics indicates that having a television in the bedroom directly affected a child’s quality of sleep, and heavy television viewing in any room made it harder for children to fall asleep and get a full night’s sleep. And a number of researchers, including those at the Centers for Disease Control and the National Cancer Institute, have concluded that the more hours children watch television, the more likely they are to be obese.
