Abstract

Televisions in the bedrooms of children and adolescents have become a common norm in the United States. A problematic cause of concern when looking at the health and well-being of children and adolescents not only includes the mental and physical daily functioning which is being affected by the lack and quality of sleep that children receive, but health risks such as early onset childhood obesity, and risky behaviors including sexual activity, drugs, and cigarette smoking. Research has shown that all of these affects are proven to increase when a television is in a child’s bedroom.
