Anti-social behavior could result from excessive T-V

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A new study reveals too much T-V time for young children could cause future behavior problems.

Researchers say although the risk is small, they found five year olds who watched three or more hours of T-V a day were more likely to develop negative behaviors like fighting or stealing by the age of seven.

However, long periods of playing video games or on the computer had no impact on children's behavior.
