Parental TV Control with the Mikko Que: It's Time to Manage TV Time

Television offers many opportunities for children to learn about virtually any subject you can imagine. From Sesame Street to The Learning Channel and PBS to Discovery, quality TV channels do exist, offering families an opportunity to gain knowledge and discuss personal opinions. Even with all of this great TV programming, however, research shows that the amount of a child's time watching TV is just as important as the content of the shows being viewed, intensifying the need for parental TV control in both channels watched and hours watched.

Parental TV ControlThe effects of too many hours of TV viewing are subtle at first. The vast majority of research suggests that, without parental TV control, the following issues can develop over time:

  • Obesity-Children who watch more than 4 hours of television today have a greater chance of being overweight or obese. Weight gain occurs mainly because TV watching is a sedentary activity, is often accompanied by snacking, and exposes children to commercials about high-calorie, unhealthy foods.
  • Escapism-Many experts say that TV parental control is essential because if screen time is left unchecked, TV will become a form of escape that interrupts schoolwork, sports, family time, sleep, and other important activities.
  • Commercialism-No matter how good the programming is, most TV stations rely upon commercials to make money, and children are especially vulnerable to commercial messages. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), children without the benefit of parental TV control are exposed to about 40,000 commercials per year.

To assist mothers and fathers who wish to limit screen time to healthy levels, Mikko has created the most comprehensive parental TV control, Internet control, and video game control device available today. Simply connect televisions, Internet signals, and video games to the Mikko Que, burn customized TimeKeys using our setup disk and any USB drive, and each child will be prepared to enter the world of media with appropriate limits on their screen time.

Learn more about our unique, innovative method of parental TV control by contacting Mikko today.
