kids' performance

I feel that most children nowadays spend more time engaged in TV, movies and video games than any other activity besides sleep. How parents monitor the television and video game habits of their children is tied to the kids' performance in school, their relationships with peers and their weight, according to a new study.
It may be a fairly small effect in different aspects of the child's functioning on a daily or a weekly basis but there are tiny changes accumulating over time which eventually lead to measurable changes in academics, relationship patterns and physical patterns.
I have observed that when parents restrict how much screen time kids watch, restrict what they watch and talk about the shows they watch, it is linked to more sleep, better school performance and less aggression among kids. Better sleep was also tied to lower body mass index scores among children. (Body mass index, or BMI, is a measure of weight in relation to height.)
