Posted by: admin on: December 1, 2011

How often we spend our time in front of the television with our children by our side little knowing its effect on them. Have a look at this article.


Children are as vulnerable to the effects of ‘passive TV’ as they are to secondhand smoking, and could harm their language development making it harder for them to cope when they go to school, experts have claimed.

The American Academy of Paediatrics warns about ‘secondhand television’ in its guidelines for children aged under two.

Experts said parents needed to understand that ‘their own media use can have a negative effect on children.”
