New study shows television limits attention span

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

(WFLX) - Too much TV or too many video games may limit attention span.

Researchers at Iowa State University say kids who play video games or watch TV for more than two hours a day can have trouble concentrating.

On average, they all spent about four and a half hours a day in front of screens.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says two hours a day should be the limit for children ages two and older.
