Children are spending way to much time watching television instead of going outside and running in the sun or playing with their friends. So T.V is a bad hobby being introduced to small children that later on that will be their weakness when trying to study or do homework. It will soon hit them as an obstacle and they will eventually start getting bad grades, becoming violent and rude, and maybe even dropping out of school. Violent kids, talking bad, rude, flunkers, ect.
Those are all examples of how your children will become with bad habits. Do you parents really want children to be?

In conclusion to solve this problem try to sit down with your kids and view the programs they are watching select developmentally appropriate shows and most importantly show place limits in how long they are sitting down just doing nothing but watching T.V. also turn off T.V during family meals and study time. (page 2 of source 1) Children and Watching T.V shows how parents should encourage discussion with your children about what they are seeing no violent and rated R shows as watch shows with them.
The American academy of pediatrics (AAP) thinks that it will be better that children under the age of 2 watch no T.V at all. And that children older than 2 watch 1 to 2 hours of day of quality programming.
