Watching TV in the bedroom can lower children’s school performanc

Children who have television in their bedroom may score less in school performance// evaluations than their peers who do not have TV in their rooms. In a new study by the researchers from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Stanford University researchers have reported that the home environment, especially that related to the media, is of utmost important in their ability to affect the performance of children in school.

While TV viewing from bedroom tends to lower the performance level of children at school, children with access to a home computer may actually benefit from the exposure. Having a computer at home and using it time to time can improve the performance of children in school by about 6 points in the math, language and art tests taken and about 4 points higher in the reading tests taken by the children in the third grade, that was part of the Stanford Achievement Test

Parents have always wanted to see improved test scores at school for their children. According to the new research, this may be as simple as taking out the TV out of the kids’ room, or not putting it there in the first place only. Investing in a home computer also may be a good idea to expose children to the increasing information from the electronic media that may help their school performance, says the study.
