If the 2012 statistic can be believed, Americans over the age of 2 watch TV an average of ... 4 to 5 hours a day , 28 to 34 hours a week, 1,456 to 1,768 hours a year .
Because so many people use television as a babysitter for children, which causes them to become addicted to watching. That's they only thing they know how to do, if the parents are not involved with teaching their children
Ratings for hockey in Canada are greater than any country in the world. Hockey is not only a sport for us but a vital part of our culture. There are few Canadians, including females, who haven't played hockey at some level. In fact we not only follow the NHL pros, but women's hockey and junior hocke…y. The top rated telecasts for TSN have been Canada's games at the World U20 Junior Championships. (MORE)
Yes, infact I did an essay on it! :D Here Too Much TV? Have you ever started reading a book and then looked at the TV and then just got attached to it? Well that is just what happens to many kids in the U.S. The average family spends too much time watching TV. Too much TV can cause eye… problems and can distract you very easily. In school many kids cant concentrate because in their mind they are constantly thinking about the show they saw. You can prevent these things from happening to you by turning off your TV and leaving it off until you get time on the weekends. Instead of watching TV you could listen to your music CDs. The more time you spend watching TV, the greater your risk of dying at an earlier age. If you stop watching TV you will most likely start getting better at doing your homework. For some people giving up the TV remote is big decision but all you have to do is think that it is for your own good. I agree that some people watch too much TV every day but I think it would be okay to watch the news each morning and watch a show on weekend nights. I believe that if you stop watching TV it will raise your metabolism. Few people I saw watch TV all day long when they have things to do and they wait until the last minute to do it. If are thinking "If TV is so bad for you, then why do they still make them?" the answer is that TV is a great way to get money out of people. The experts say that watching TV while you fall asleep increases your stress and anxiety level. Also when you watch TV many kids might come across a rated R film because violence, crime and other inappropriate material is mainly shown on TV. Some people stay up at late hours just to watch their favorite show! TV is bad for you so warn your friends and family before its too late! (MORE)
Some say that young children should not watch any TV. School age children can watch limited amounts, but for school days, no more than a half hour, since there are so many other things to be done before bed on school nights.
you can suffer from seizures, have sore eyes and get very tired, so it is best not to watch too much TV. take frequent breaks, grab a drink/snack and get penty of rest!
Some teens watch 6 or 7 hours of TV, from the time they get home from school, to the time they go to bed.. In some households, wise parents limit the amount of TV their teen is permitted to watch, so this amount of time varies widely.
Eye Knew It! So when you or your children are practically sitting inside the TV, are your eyes suffering? Dr. Lee Duffner, spokesperson for the American Academy of Ophthalmology, responds in his professional opinion: "Hogwash. You won't cause any physical damage to your eyes." Actually, your eyes… have specialized muscles that control the shape of the eye lens (for focusing) and your eye movements (to keep the eyes moving together). If an object is closer to the eye, as it is when you are close to the TV, the muscles controlling the lens automatically change, or accommodate its shape to bring the object into proper focus. Some children and adults see the images on a television screen more clearly if they sit closer to it. According to The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), kids can actually focus up close without eyestrain better than adults, so they often develop the habit of sitting right in front of the television or holding reading material close to their eyes. Research concludes that although television won't harm the eyes, it may cause eye fatigue if you are sitting too close to it for a long period of time. Fortunately though, the tiny eye muscles mentioned above are like other muscles in the body: they may fatigue, but they are resilient. Your body, including your eyes, evolved to handle a lot of daily wear and tear. (MORE)
No, TV gives out a really low amount of UV radiation though that's only bad for your eyes if you watch TV for more than 6 hours without a light on. If you have a light on its fine but just don't watch to much TV. Just get outside unless your sick. but if your sick you should sleep not watch TV
no sorry this is brooke in year 5 i have no edea i think you can if you watch it day and night non stop
I have Time Warner Basic Cable which has 2000 channels, including 100 in High Def. There is so much to watch on TV, it's incredible. Cooking shows, education programs, news programs, history shows, movies, plays, music. The reason why people watch too much TV, is because there is plenty to watch on …TV that is worth watching. PBS, TCM, National Geographic, Discovery, History, Science, ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC. Sports. Television in 2010 in the USA is great. (MORE)
Well, sort of. Watching TV is a very passive occupation(you don't move around a lot), and if you don't move you don't burn many calories. And if you only burn a few calories it gets easier and easier to eat more calories than you loose over a day. And if you're eating more calories than you burn the… excess calories will stay with you as weight gain. (MORE)
Person is a very broad specification since some people have easier access to one or multiple TVs depending on what part of the world they live in. Life expectancy also depends on where a person resides. But if you take a typical American , statistics show that the average American watches four hours… of television per day and lives to be around seventy-five years old. If this is accurate then the average American will spend one-sixth or 16.67% of their life watching television. This amounts to approximately twelve and a half YEARS of their life. That is so pathetic. People, GET A BETTER LIFE! TRY YOUR HARDEST! DO YOUR BEST! AND BE YOUR OWN SELF! (MORE)
if you are using the old box like tv. it is hard on your eyes because they are actually flickering at super high speeds. also a distraction even though you arent watching, theres that after effect.
Hello,Do you love television?I certainly do.My teacher says that children watch too much television.Raise your hand if we watch too much television.no one.
It will do nothing butn make you a couch potato ANSWER: Aside from making you fat and out of shape from inactivity, too much tv watching puts the brain into a hypnotic state, causing it to cease the production of new brain cells. Activities that stimulate brain cell growth, such as book reading …or visiting new places, is a much better idea for your overall intellect. (MORE)
If I was a girl I would watch: Victorious, Shake it up, Hannah Montana Forever, Icarly,and Wizards of Waverly Place. If I were a boy I would watch: Codename kids nextdoor, Spongebob SquarePants, Teen Titans, ScoobyDoo, and Ben10.
bad grades in school, unkept livingroom and the so. Also you might not be getting the amount of exercise you need each day.
Yes it calms their brains after thinking alot at shool Answer: In general there is nothing on the general broadcast channels suitable for children to watch, The exceptions are the educational channels and documentaries. It would be more to the point to have them read, practice hobbies, exercise …or do chores. (MORE)
It makes them happy. I am a child and i am watching it right now. :-)
you start getting mad when people get in front of the t.v., and it increases your chance of being overweight and getting asthma, no joke!!
Absolutely! If you let your kid watch a movie like "Not Another Teen Movie", your little girls will probably try to find your vibrator (which is underneath mom's bed)! And your little boys will get in trouble at school for fu@#ing girls up against a window!
on average, a teenager will watch tv for 3-4 hours a day. hope this helped.
Watching TV isn't so much bad for the eyes as it is bad for the brain and body. If you are sitting down, vegging, then you aren't getting any exercise, which leads to obesity and other health problems.
It doesn't matter, as long as you get doen anything you need to get done before watching T.V.
the effects can lead to seizure... may also lead to eye's hurting... and dizziness ....so dont watch the tv for a long time if you dont want to have these .....
Violence is a broad category. Certain types of violence stem from instinctive modules designed for many different purposes. Now every kid develops at a different rate and reaches a different conlclusion in brain developement based on factors such as age, race, environmental stmuli. The child around …the ages of 1-2 and general infancy, will decide whether the violence interests him, and as he progresses a general consistency is that the child will put more thought into understanding the violence in terms of cause and effect. In relation to the parent he will decide what sort of approval or disapproval the parent gives him for the type of behavior he has encountered. On a subconscious level the child may interpret the parent as suggesting it as an ok behavior, a dangerous behavior, or even a behavior he must learn in order to survive. These are the most basic suggestions a child can receive from a parent in terms of violence on TV, but are of course important. As the child ages he puts less significance on the parent's suggestions. Kids need to be exposed to certain things so that when they are exposed with real consequences, they will have some experience. The more a child sees violence on T.V. does not necessarily(as conventional wisdom claims) make the child think it is ok. A large amount of exposure to the right child under the right circumstances could psychologically scar him for life as to be afraid of the slightest hint of violence. Now this is all very confusing and vague, but there is one point that is not. The type of violence your children should most definatly not be exposed to is violence against women, whether it be in the form of a verbally abusive relationship, or a women in an army suit fighting in Iraq, this should not be permitted. Violence among kids or grown men in the form of competition is much different than a women being violently mistreated and sends a much different image. Sexuality develops at a very early age as Freud clearly portrays in his work, and I feel that many people are involunatarily ignorant of this fact. (MORE)
1. Fun 2. Develops learning 3. Not Bored 4. Less hassle for parents 5. Keeps them up-to-date 6. Teaches them important life dangers and how to avoid them 7. Gets them friends with people who watch similar programmes 8. Calms them down 9. Tests their concentration 10. Prevents them …from watching adult videos/pictures on computers (MORE)
kids should watch TV because some of the programs are telling kids to get out and be active and make thing and the TV can inspire kids to do what they do.
Scientists believe that the more TV you watch, the worse your grades will be in school. Many parents have found out that their kids imitate the rude behavior and language that they see on TV. Therefore, many parents have limited TV to a certain amount of time for their kids.
No,I do not think you can die from watching too much TV but it could be a cause of something that might lead to death. usually watching too much TV might lead to; Poor eyesight,addiction,unproductivness,antisocialness.
I think that as long as they don't have school or anything important the next day, it is okay.
it really depends on what you watch but everything you watch on tv eventually will give you a headace if you watch to much.
Yes, beacues if your kids watch the right show that teach about learning and kindness they will change, let them watch show that teach them about goin up and thing about the future.
Adults can watch tv how ever long they want lol. But like about 5 to six hours i guess.
In general, it's not good to do "too much" of anything. Watching a lot of TV can be bad for you in several ways -- first, people generally sit down when they watch TV, so that means they are not moving, not exercising, and that is not good for your health. Second, people are not interacting with oth…er people while they watch TV, so it is not good for your social skills -- your ability to converse with other people intelligently and comfortably. Also, some people watch TV when they really have other things to do, like homework or practicing a sport or musical instrument. A little bit of TV can be interesting and enjoyable, but when it becomes an excuse for not living your life, then it is a waste of your time and health. (MORE)
it doesn't matter as long as 1 - 5 years old watches nick Jr, 6 - 11 years old watches Nickelodeon, 12 - 16 watches Disney channel, and 17 and older can pick what ever they want to watch.
Kids watch tv because its humorous and dramatic and addicting and they can relate to it
Well, you could turn the TV off...or take it away. But the best method is to get them involved in other activities to take their mind off watching television
it help ful for when family member are to buzy also it a good distration find me on youtube- devil love see you soon
I recommend passive 3D TVs over active 3D TVs. I have 2 kids and we have a Samsung active 3D TV set. My kids complained about a 'flash' while watching 3D 'Tangled' (it turned out to be a flicker) and they got eye strains from it. They don't watch 3D on our TV that often anymore. I regret buying an a…ctive TV set because just like you, my husband and I don't use 3D that much. the 3D feature was mainly for our kids but even they don't like it due to the flickers. My sister has a LG passive 3D TV and my kids like watching 3D on that because it's flicker free and doesn't give them eye problems. (MORE)
Obviously not - autism is a neurological condition, apart from thefact that peole are born autistic, watching TV cannot change yourbrain.
No, obviously a person cannot 'get' autism by watching too much TV. Autism isn't something that someone can contract or develop, Autismis a neurological disorder so a result of how the brain develops inthe womb. TV thus has zero link with Autism.
In my opinion, they should watch it every now and then, for general child development. But here are some reasons why not. . Â . They become used to it and want it all the time . It could ruin their optical development, they could need glasses or something more serious late in life if they watc…h tv excessively . Could lead to bad behaviour . Â . Hope I helped! (MORE)
There's no reason they need to watch any at all, so anything over zero hours per EVER is a bonus.
It really depends on the age of the child. Video games and television have been proven to increase cognitive function, but there is a tipping point. I'd say two hours of television/video games a day max until they get a bit older. Try and remember that content matters as well. Children absorb everyt…hing. (MORE)
Though some people would say as long as they don't get a headache doing so, about 3 to 4 hours would be a good amount of tv to watch. Though distance from the tv matters, 3 to 4 hours is a good time for kids to watch tv. However, age actually affects this time too. Kids age 13 and up tend to not be …that soft with the eyes and could go 3.5 to 4.5 or 5 hours. (Hope this isn't too confusing) (MORE)
It's not really about the TV at all, it's about not moving enough. People become fat when the food they eat has more energy than they use up, and the less you move around the less energy you use. If you keep active, and get some exercise every day, it's easier to use up the energy from the food, a…nd to avoid getting fat. But if all you do in your afternoons and evenings is to sit around you're using real little energy, and you run a bigger risk of overeating and getting fat. But TV as such doesn't matter, you'd run the exact same risk of getting fat is you read, played chess, did puzzles or something equally stationary instead. (MORE)
It Depends On What Kind Of Tv You Have. I Have A Sharp Tv So For Me It Costs $4.99 :)
