We got rid of cable and I have SOOOO much more time to spend on running and my kids are AWESOME readers.

Money we don't have going to the cable rich man....just so my kids can "veg" out...I don't think so. LIFE IS TOO SHORT!

My hubby can catch his sports at the local bar and he gets to watch it better than if he watched here with the kids running around. With the internet, I can do my exercises for free on YOUTUBE!

TV Found Guilty

TV is bad for kids, according the researchers at the Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Centre in Seattle, along with scores of other doctors and researchers. They found that for each hour of TV a child watches, there is an increase in the risk of attention deficit disorder (ADD).

Why? Possibly because TV gets kids accustomed to a level of stimulation that is much higher than they would experience in life. Combine this with the rapid changing of images characteristic of children's programming, and you've set kids up to be ill-suited to deal with school, homework, concentration, reading, and real life in general. Three recent studies show that as TV viewing increases, academic performance decreases.
Before formal schooling even begins, however, the damage of TV viewing is well underway. A 1996 study found that exposure to television causes delayed acquisition in toddlers. That's why the American Academy of Pediatrics advises that children under the age of two be kept away from TV altogether.
TV turnoff week will be observed during April of each year. The challenge is to abstain from any TV viewing for an entire week. Mark your calendars! Are you up for the challenge? www.sparkpeople.com/resource/wellnes
