We end up in a positive loop when we limit media consumption. Better sleep, better concentration, better grades and so on. And even a lower BMI. And less aggression. A recent study reported in JAMA Pediatrics indicated all those benefits accrue from monitoring children's media consumption. Parents are empowered by realizing that being more involved in their child's media consumption may impact a wide range of healthy behaviors.I imagine it works for mom and dad, too. Better sleep, better concentration at work, more time for active play, less stress, lower BMI. Try it. Watch what you watch.
