Have you noticed it? That when you turn your TV on, it is difficult to turn it off. You would start watching whatever is being shown one film after another. If you don't like whats being shown you scan the channels. How many channels does a regular cable connection has? 100 channels? And some of them offer "good" shows/films/movies to watch. Until the whole day has passed without you noticing it. You won't probably notice how you're day had gone by unproductive.

Are you aware of what watching TV more than 3 hours can do to you and your brain? What is the effect of television to our young children? According to recent studies that what your kids/children who are left to just watch TV all day has a great deal of effect on them. If your children watches or are exposed to a lot of violent films/shows poses harmful risk to your kids. Affecting your child's mental, physical and social skills development.

At age around 1-7 years old. They should be involved in activities that involves the use of their brain and physical activities.

What we see or watch in front of the Television can affect us. And why not, we uses two of our main senses when watching television programs. Sense of sight and our sense of hearing. Our full focus is into what we are seeing. Notice how we are influenced in products that we will buy according to television ads about certain products.

Compute the hours you spend watching TV programs daily. If you notice that you spend more time watching television than talking to your family members , that is something you should change.

2.Reduce the time you spent watching TV programs. Try reducing your daily viewing habits by only watching programs during the evening before you sleep (move your television to the living room from your bedroom, especially the TV on your kids room ). Yes, no TV by the day.

3.Choose what you watch. If its educational and helps your kids for school it is a good program (especially programs without violence ).

4. Do not falter when it comes to turning off your television. Follow your new and improved schedule for viewing habits.

The good thing about TV today is that some do have a channel lock which cannot be viewed by my kids. This is very true and important because we are hooked on a cable television wherein there are lots of channels that are not appropriate to my kids. My TV is equip with this function and all I have to do is to set it to lock mode.

Parent never permit their children to spend more time in front of television. For this, parents should reduce their time that they spend for viewing different programs. If we open the television, they always have the tendency to watch the programs that we are seing. If children spend too much time for watching TV, it will affect their studies. More than that it may badly affect their eyes also. Some programs in television are not good. If they watch like that programs, that may make changes in their basic character also.
