Less Screen Time, More Family Time

Jeff and his kids watch a lot of TV. The TV is always on when they are home.   

 

Jeff’s children attend Head Start. Pat, a Head Start teacher, tells Jeff and other parents what the research says about TV. Too much TV can cause kids to be overweight. It can affect their learning and their sleep. Plus, it can cause them to make bad choices.

 

Jeff wants his kids to be healthy. He wants them to do well in school. He wants them to be kind and to behave well. Jeff decides to limit their screen time to one hour per day.

 

Less screen time means more family time. Jeff and his kids ride their bikes. They walk to the park. They play games and read books. They talk more and smile more.
