Screen Time is Out of Control

Digital media exposure for children of all ages should be limited, according to new guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics. You probably won’t be surprised to hear that a new report found that teens and tweens spend a lot of time watching TV, videos and movies, playing video games, reading, listening to music and checking social media, but you might be shocked by just how much time. On any given day, teens in the United States spend about nine hours using media for their enjoyment, according to the report by Common Sense Media.

Profanity on TV is UP 69%

After only four months an appeals court struck down the Federal Communications Commission’s broadcast standards, a new study shows that profanity on broadcast television has risen nearly 70 percent in the past five years.  The study by the Parents Television Council reported that harsher profanities are now being used, and it added that the “greatest increase in the use of the harshest profanities” took place during the 8 p .m. Eastern period — often known as the “family hour” — and at 9 p.m. Eastern.

20% of Our Children Have Hearing Loss

Hearing loss in teenagers is about 30 percent higher now than it was in the 1980’s and 1990’s, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.  The study showed that one in five teens, about 6.5 million individuals, have some form of hearing loss.  The finding came as a surprise to researchers, according to Science News. They expected to see a drop in rates of hearing loss, thanks to widespread warnings about the risks posed by listening to loud music and to wider use of vaccines that prevent certain ear infections that can lead to hearing loss.
