According to this news story, kids aged 10 to 16 spend something like 6 hours A DAY in front of a screen. That’s almost a full-time job… yikes. And 90 per cent of children in this country aren’t getting enough exercise.
I guess planting the little nippers in front of the tube is easier than playing with them or driving them to soccer practice. But really, that’s no way to parent. And since 90 per cent is awfully close to 100 per cent of children, it means virtually every parent in this country can – and should – do better.
