Kids & TV

Here's the latest data from Common Sense Media about the media diets of young children in America.   

I'm kind of surprised that we have one year olds watching an hour of TV every day.  Yeah, no ADD problems for them in the future.  One year olds — can they even focus?

Other interesting findings:

  • 30% of kids under two have a TV in their bedroom.
  • Only about 60% of kids read or are read to every day. More reading, please.
  • 92% of high-income kids have high-speed cable. Only 42% of low-income kids do. The divide is about the same along the educational spectrum.
