Television can be a great entertainer and educator but needs to be watched in moderation.

According to a research done by Kids health, children who consistently spend more than four hours watching TV are more likely to be overweight and show aggressive behavior. They are also likely to have poor eye sight in their early ages as a result of too much television.
