How Much TV is Too Much?

The average young child is reported to watch 3-4 hours of television a day. The average retired person watches over 6 hours of television a day.

I watch a lot of TV. It’s not turned on during the day, but most nights, I’m watching something. I’m lucky I have
TIVO, so I can record shows throughout the day then watch them commercial free in the evening. (Advertiser’s hate that!)

We don’t know how much television is a bad thing for toddlers or seniors. Television can be a way to fill otherwise empty days. But, it can also be away to avoid living life.
