Wallpaper TV

In the next several days, I’m hopeful that headlines will highlight an issue I’ve talked about for years:  wallpaper TV.  That’s my term for the  “background television” that reaches children  an average of four hours each day.

Results of a comprehensive, national study will be presented in the next few days at a meeting in Phoenix of the International Communication Association. What does the research say?  Exactly what I’ve observed for years: passive screen time it not good for kids.

The bottom line is clear:  when you’re through watching TV, turn it off.
