UK children watch an average of more than two and a half hours of television a day and spend an hour and 50 minutes online a day, a poll suggests.
A survey of 2,445 children aged five to 16 by Child Wise found almost two in three have their own computer (62%).
And nearly half have Internet access in their own room (46%). (!!!!!!!!)
What the hell is that about? What % of their time was spent bike riding, making a den, getting really muddy, reading from a book? (A what?) A book... And what about helping with dinner, and I don't mean just waiting for the microwave to ping. Then there are pets to feed/clean, homework to do and, if you've done all that, what about setting the table?
I'm clearly living in an alternative universe.... fortunately it is with my husband and our children.
