The Berenstain Bears and Too Much TV by Stan BerenstainThe Bears have become TV zombies. Mama steps in and connects them to nature again. This is pretty good and TV is addictive. They should really run some AA meetings for TV addiction. I could have used that at one point in my life. I can easily get sucked into TV world.
The kids love the bears so this was a favorite in our house, although the kids weren’t crazy about the message. The nephew is a TV zombie. He will detach after awhile, but he loves TV and the Niece likes TV and she gets bored of it after a while. The Nephew couldn’t understand what was wrong with TV. I like Mama having the kids watch the stars come out. The kids did not want to do that.
A fun book from 1984.

How Much TV Is Too Much?
We all have our favorite shows House of Cards anyone? The average American spends up to 34 hours a week watching live TV. In fact, research suggests people between the ages of 18 and 34 watch more than two hours of Internet or mobile video per week, in addition to the average 23 hours they spend tuned into live TV. One study found that for every hour spent watching TV, our life expectancy decreases by 22 minutes Television viewing time and reduced life expectancy: a life table analysis. Veerman, J.
Most of us underestimate the amount of TV we—and our children—watch. Try keeping a log for two weeks or a month. Write down the exact time you turn on the TV, when you turn it off, and what programs or videos your child watched during that time. You may be surprised at how much time your child spends in front of the TV. The average child watches too much TV. The problem is not just that the hours your toddler spends glued in front of the tube are hours she's not spending exploring or reading or creating worlds of her own. Just as troublesome is the fact that the more TV your child watches, the higher the chances that she'll be watching junk at least some of the time.

As children grow and develop, they can be easily influenced by what they see and hear, especially from digital media. Digital media can include TV, the internet, and smart devices. Some programs can be educational. But many children watch too much digital media. Many programs can show children violent behavior that you don't want them to imitate, or that can cause fear.
Your child's viewing habits are forming now. Here's why you need to set limits. If The Wiggles are on, I'm like, "Let's dance! But having fun is only part of her rationale: Farr, a stay-at-home-mom from Las Vegas, credits educational kids' shows with reinforcing Sawyer's ABCs and counting skills, while teaching him about other cultures. Sawyer began watching TV at 8 months, when he was so captivated by Blues Clues that his mom turned it on for him almost every day. Between TV, videos, and the occasional computer game, Sawyer will, on some days, log as much as five hours of "screen time," though the total is usually closer to two hours.
Young adults who watch a lot of TV and don't exercise much may start to see the effects of their unhealthy habits on their brains as early as midlife, a new study suggests. In the study, researchers looked at the TV viewing habits of more than 3, people, who were 25 years old, on average, at the start of the study. The people in the study who watched more than 3 hours of TV per day on average over the next 25 years were more likely to perform poorly on certain cognitive tests, compared with people who watched little TV, the researchers found. The results suggest that engaging in physical activity , as opposed to sitting and watching TV, is important for brain health, said study author Tina D. In the study, the researchers asked the participants every five years how many hours per day they spent watching TV on average during the past year. At the start of the study, and again every two to five years later, the researchers asked the participants if, and how much, they exercised.
