Parents should set time limits, they sometimes use TV's and computers as babysitters.

Get them out running around, climbing trees etc....everyone is so scared these days of their kids falling or scraping their knees, breaking arms etc....its part of being a kid ffs.  I have lots of scars over me from injuries as a kid and believe me each one has a story lol.

Kids are having health proplems and eye problems not to mention bad posture too, due to being slumped over screens all day!

Take your kids out, even if its just half a hour a day, supervise them and there shouldn't be an issue.

Its a problem that it isn't like the good old days when we could run around and be free with not as many predators as there is now! Even kids  walking to school can be dangerous!

Whats up with a gaming way of life. Everyone doesn't have to run around the park getting skin cancers.
