American children under 6 years of age spend as much time watching television and playing on the computer as they do playing outside, according to a study conducted by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation of 1,000 parents of children ages 6 months to 6 years. The authors of the study think that with so much new media available for infants and toddlers, it's critical that we learn more about its impact on child development. Young children with television sets in their rooms watch an average of 22 minutes more television and videos per day than other children.
