Study: TV Can Help Kids’ Behavior


tvGet ready to show those kids some Sesame Street.

A wide-reaching study released today proved that television can improve children’s behavior – but increased television viewing leads to an increase in criminal behavior.


That’s because the study shows that the content of what kids are watching makes a difference: if they are watching aggressive and violent shows, then they are more likely to exhibit those tendencies. But if they watched the same amount of television and instead watched shows that promoted healthy social interactions, their behavior improved.

The study looked at 565 families with children ages 3 to 5. Read more about it at USA Today.

  1. This shows that b’etzem there is nothing wrong with tv, only with what you watch on it. DVDs like “mitzvah boulevard” are great for kids – they make it easy for them to learn alef beis and brachos etc.
