Is it bad for kids to watch a lot of tv?
It depends on how much tv and what shows.
I am not sure that they do. I am an adult, and I have never seen a show that told me that it was bad to watch cartoons. I still watch them sometimes, even though adults are a lot busier than kids usually, and we have less time to watch. But cartoons are still fun, and many adults still watch them.

A lot of kids think they can "multi-task" and watch TV while they work - this never turns out as well as they think it will. Your brain can't concentrate on two things at once, so if the TV is on, your mind is thinking about that instead of doing your work. There are no actual studies on this, so there are no numbers, but there are a lot of kids who could be making…
Its educational. ---------------------- Not necessarily. It depends on what and how much they're watching. Television that involves physical harm, emotional harm, bad words, drugs, and racism is a bad influence. However, lots of TV shows involve those things, and kids watch them. Television that involves the opposite of these things, such as sympathy and helping the environment, is a good influence.
