Too much TV time makes kids more vulnerable to bullying

Parents are busier than ever, juggling multiple responsibilities at home and work, all the while doing their best to raise a healthy, happy child. Sometimes a child’s favorite TV show can be the only time to catch a breath. And in a world of smartphones, tablets, laptops and TVs, minimizing screen time has gotten harder than ever. But according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, toddlers shouldn’t be exposed to any screen time before the age of 2, and kids age 2 and up should only watch 1 to 2 hours of age-appropriate TV per day. Now, new research adds evidence of the potential downsides of too much TV exposure at a young age, showing that that too much TV time at a young age can have a detrimental impact on kids’ social development.
