TV and children's development | BPS

TV and children's development | BPS: Research carried out at the University of Iowa, published in the Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics, found that if a TV programme is on in the background, rather than being watched intently, it can take a child's attention away from play and learning.

This was particularly apparent among low-income families and households in which the parents have not been well-educated.

The team behind the study has therefore suggested that once a youngster has finished sitting down to watch a certain show, the television should be turned off.
