When Children More Like The Real World Reality Show Instead

Taken from Science News for KidsGenerasi young at this age are children being raised by television . They present to the world in which TV has been dropped from the list of luxury goods and is considered a primary requirement . They grow when private TV stations began to appear commercially oriented . Now they can choose more than seven local TV channels and dozens of international TV channels ; most of which provide impressions for 24 hours straight without a day off . Event types are displayed also not lose many , ranging from the informative to the manipulative . Everything can be accessed in an instant with just one touch of the remote control button .With all the charm of a small box is offered , certainly appears concerns of parents about the side effects that may be caused by exposure to the new media . Most of these concerns are just a form of paranoia from the generation who feel alienated , but some are actually real . Consider the following findings on the effects of watching TV at a very young age .As reported by Yahoo! News , a new study on the subject published by the international journal Pediatrics . The survey, conducted by Carl Landhuis of the University of Otago in Dunedin long-term , involving more than 1,000 children in New Zealand who were born between April 1972 and March 1973. Landhuis found that the children , both men and women , who watch TV more than two hours a day will have symptoms of problematic concentrations of 40 percent more when they were teenagers . Not affiliated the amount of time spent in front of TV teens , also suggests that the negative effects of TV viewing on children is permanent .There are several possibilities that could explain the raised Landhuis this relationship . The first , rapid movement scene in most TV programs are too intense to stimulate a child's brain is still in its infancy . As a result , children become bored more quickly in real life is a routine activity or slower rhythms , such as school work . The second possibility is the lack of active involvement of elements in watching TV that conditioned the child to have a similar mindset in other activities that require mental engagement , such as reading and sports .Indeed, this research could not really determine the direction of causality between the definite time watching TV with concentration problems . According Landhuis , in addition to the possibility that the duration of watching TV cause concentration problems , could have the opposite happens : the child who from the beginning has been prone to have problems with concentration is more like watching TV than doing anything else . But anyway , the relationship between the two remains very real and should be aware that we all care about the child's development .
