Tommorrow is the last day of national tv turnoff week.
According to www.screentime.org:
On average, children in the US will spend more time in front of the television (1,023 hours) than in school this year (900 hours).
Forty percent of Americans frequently or always watch television during dinner.
As US Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher said at the Kick Off of TV-Turnoff Week 2001, “We are raising the most overweight generation of youngsters in American history…This week is about saving lives.”
So, if you’re just finding out about this now it’s not too late to turn off. Why not make next week your own personal tv turnoff week?
Turn off your computer. Turn off your tv and go outside! It’s beautiful out!
