Media Exposure

We all know that most kids watch way too much TV, but this study really floored me - according to Generation M2, Media in the Lives of 8 to 18 year olds, in 2009 the average child aged 8 - 18 years spent 7 hours and 38 mninutes each and every day using entertainment media (TV, computers, texting, etc) for a total of more than 53 hours per week!!! What's m,ore, for many of those hours kids were multi-tasking (surfing the web while watching TV, texting while playing video games) so that in those 7:38 hours a day, they were cramming in 10:45 hours worth of media content. WOW.
