According to a Jan. 6 Agape Press story, a recent study reveals that a large majority of young kids are spending a significant amount of time in front of electronic media - and experts aren't sure what the long-term effects of that habit will be. The study, released by the Kaiser Family Foundation, found that 68% of children age two and under spend an average of two hours a day either in front of the TV, the computer, or playing video games.

The story states, "Such obsession with electronic media has been linked by previous studies to obesity and poorer reading ability, and some groups worry that kids are negatively influenced by the violence, sexual content, and substance abuse so prevalent on TV."
