TV is Making Our Kids Fat: The Sequel

Lauren Young

This study from my alma mater, Penn State, just crossed my inbox, and works well with Cathy's posting on research linking television to overweight toddlers.

I have a confession: Sometimes I put my son 17-month-old son Leo in his crib, and let him watch TV in the morning. Usually, this only happens if I need to shower, and there is no one (read: husband or caregiver) around to supervise him. But I hate doing it.

We are probably moving soon, and I already plan to take the TV out of his room, so that should help.

How do you monitor (and control) your children's television viewing habits?
