TV and Video Games Contribute to Attention Deficit Disorder

RedTracker| Researchers believe that children who exceed two hours per day of television and video game play are 1.5 to twice as likely to have attention deficit problems. The study was conducted on both college-age participants and elementary school-age children.

Brain science demonstrates that the brain becomes what the brain does. If the brain is trained to require constant stimulation, it will be bored without it. Simarily, the pace of TV and online programming is training our brains to have an inability to slow down and think qualitatively.

It’s not recommended that kids spend more than 2 hours a day online with games and fast-paced programming. The kids in the Iowa research spent 4.26 hours a day online, which is low compared to the national average. via Science Daily
