“it’s displacing real-life experiences,” Martins said. “Time spent with the TV is time not spent on confidence-building activities like sports, learning to play an instrument ”
Society is on an ANTI-SKILL crusade. Of course child development is waning.
This starts with parents who won’t potty-train their kids until they’re old enough to be in school. Easier to buy diapers for four years than to spend time with the kid and to have actual goals and expectations of their performance.
No such thing as a diving board in a swimming pool. Kids might have fun and learn about trajectory, gravity, velocity, etc.
Gotta put kids in a car seat until they’re fourteen. Wouldn’t want them looking out a window and seeing something interesting. DVD player manufacturers and movie makers are making a killing from car seats.
Don’t get me started about the attempts to make kids scared of bicycles by forcing them to wear excessive “protective equipment”.
I guess watching TV is the only safe thing to do. Excellent training for their later career as a Corporate Underling Drone.

Government has to protect your kids from you.
Because if they are left to grow up like you did they couldnt possibly learn life lessons (good and bad) and survive past the age of 12. could they?
How did we survive?
No seatbelts, protective gear on bikes, dodge ball, football, baseball, etc… no cell phones, no 300000 channels to choose from on TV. No political correctness, you call a person something offensive you learned real quick with a bloody nose that it was wrong.
Wow. Our lives were just awful.
Sure would love to go back to those awful days.

Another useless study to get these ladies tenure and promotion.
“Black boys see black characters more likely to be portrayed as criminals or crime victims.”
For the life of me i cant quite figure out why they would be portrayed that way….
Funny how TV tends to immitate real life sometimes.
