Health Tip: Limiting Kids' TV Time

Health Tip: Limiting Kids' TV Time

11/26/13

(HealthDay News) -- If you decide your children are spending too much time in front of the television, the University of Michigan Health System offers this advice for limiting kids' TV time:

  • Set rules about when TV is not allowed, such as during meals or homework.
  • Restrict TV to no more than two hours per day.
  • Don't allow your child to watch TV until homework and chores are finished. If your child is doing poorly in school, consider abolishing TV altogether.
  • Focus on conversation instead of television, and spend more time reading together.
  • Encourage physical activity and hobbies.
  • Don't use TV as a reward, punishment or babysitter.
