Health Tip: Discourage Too Much Screen Time
Avoid couch potato children

(HealthDay News) -- Between TVs, computers, hand-held devices and video games, children's screen time can add up quickly.

The Mayo Clinic says harmful effects of too much screen time could include:

  • Increased risk of obesity, junk food consumption and overeating.
  • Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep.
  • Increased risk of developing behavioral problems.
  • Increased risk of poor school performance.
  • Greater exposure to violence, which could lead to violent behavior.
  • Insufficient time for creativity and play.
