Turn off the t.v.

A long term study that followed 700 families for 19 years “found a very clear correlation between higher levels of TV watching by 14-year-olds and subsequent attention and learning problems developed during the remainder of their years.” The study concludes that teenagers “watching three or more hours of television a day leads to poor homework completion, negative attitudes toward school, bad grades, and poor performance in college.”
