We also had Singaporean children, so we're different sides of the planet and we were able to test. Is there a ripple effect from just putting the media in children's bedroom? That goes through two outcomes later in time, and we found in fact in this study that it has a really powerful ripple effect that having TV or video games in the bedroom changes how much time children spend with them.
It changes what they watch and then we can see that effect in a number of outcomes. So having a TV in the bedroom predicts poor school performance predicts a higher risk for obesity predicts a greater likelihood of what's being called a video game. Addiction predicts greater aggressive behavior and it's not just because you know of what they're watching or how much they're watching it's once they have it in their bedroom, there, watching it away from parents.
So the parents aren't able to monitor what they're seeing aren't able to be consistent with children's rules for what or how much they're allowed to watch. That child should not have media in their bedrooms, and this study shows they were exactly right, so it's even harder now than it was then, because not only do we have TV and video games, we have cell phones and iPad, so at least parents should probably be taking them out of children's bedrooms at night to charge so they're, not looking them all night long.
