DON'T SIT TO CLOSE TO THE TV
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
It seems many kids are being told not to sit too close to
the television, that it will make them go blind. Although kids have believed
this old wives tales for generations, itís simply untrue. You will not go blind
no matter how long you sit close to the television, as many children have proved
to their parents!
The reason for this old wives tale is unknown, although it
probably came from parents who wanted their kids to get out of the way of the
television, or simply did not want their kids to watch so much television.
Fortunately, you can sit right next to the television, and though the picture
isnít as good, youíll not suffer anything more than eyestrain.
While there is no evidence that sitting in front of the
television for hours will make you go blind, most doctors advise not watching
too much television as it can cause painful eye strain, and there are much
better things that children can do with their time.
