Not So Great Britain

Children under three ‘should not watch TV’ | April 25, 2007

Children under three should see no television and it should be severely rationed for older youngsters, an expert told MPs yesterday. Parents should restrict them to a recommended daily allowance, said Dr Aric Sigman.

He believes too much watching increases the risk of health and learning problems and said the Government must take action.

He also believes there should be no sets in children’s bedrooms and new mothers should be warned of the possible effects of too much television.

Studies have shown that excessive TV watching is linked to difficulty in sleeping, behavioural problems and increased obesity in children.
