WASHINGTON, June 29 ( – Studies released yesterday indicate that on average US children are in front of television or video screens four-and-a-half hours per day. The studies by the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania also indicated that almost half of 2-17 year olds have a TV in their bedrooms. Three quarters of “children’s”  shows are improperly rated and many contain scenes inappropriate for children. Moreover a large majority of parents seem oblivious to the television rating system.
