Too much screen time can be a bad thing

Children who consistently spend more than 4 hours per day watching TV are more likely to be overweight.
Kids who view violent acts on TV are more likely to show aggressive behavior, and to fear that the world is scary and that something bad will happen to them.
Teens who play violent video games and apps are more likely to be aggressive.
Characters on TV and in video games often depict risky behaviors, such as smoking and drinking, and also reinforce gender-role and racial stereotypes.
