Children watch TV too much will get ADHD syndrome
Because attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms—inattention, impulsivity, and/or hyperactivity—affect a child’s ability to learn and get along with others, some people think an ADHD child’s behavior is caused by a lack of discipline, a chaotic family life, or even too much TV.
A new study by British scientists has shown that children watching television or video games with more than two hours a day can double the risk for ADHD (a neurological disorder that leads to too hyperactive and distracting).
Accordingly, the child’s brain can become accustomed to the flash of the screen and fast – moving images of the games, making them more difficult to concentrate in the classroom – where the sight less irritated. “If minds are trained to adapt the images flash of light changes constantly, along with the transformation of sound, the angle of the camera… To keep up with the action, and then, upon entering the school, the teacher slowly lectures will not maintain the attention of children”- Professor of Psychology Douglas Gentle said.
The research was conducted in 1.323 children aged from 7 to 10 with the help of parents habits recorded gaming and watching television of the child continuously for 13 months. With that, the teachers also watched the expression focus, the attention of the child during school hours. The researchers also concluded that, as a result of watching TV and playing games affects children is the same. They also found that ADHD syndrome may occur after the child sitting in front of the screen 2 hours per day after only a year.
ADHD is viewed as a disease of the brain. The brain will adapt and change as is exposure to a certain environment. So it is not without reason that the stimulation of the environment increases the risk of getting ADHD like cigarette smoking increases the risk of cancer, too.
