TV Parental Control Should Begin at an Early Age

Before most children can walk or even crawl, they are watching a lot of television. It is estimated that two-thirds of infants and toddlers spend about 2 hours in front of a TV screen per day, even though the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says that children under the age of two should not watch TV at all. This begs the question: at what age does TV parental control begin?

TV Parental ControlAs extreme as it may sound to some, parental TV control is best established at birth. An infant's brain is developing rapidly during the first two years of life, and it is believed that TV viewing may prevent a baby from exploring his or her surroundings, connecting with parents, and engaging in other activities that are the keys to long-term physical, emotional, and mental health. Therefore, according to experts, TV parental control should ultimately block TV viewing for babies age 0-2.

Granted, there are many educational TV programs on the air, and children over the age of 2 can benefit from them. For this reason, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that children age 2-18 watch a maximum of 1-2 hours of quality TV shows a day or 14 hours a week. This number is dwarfed by the latest medical research, which shows that children between the ages of 8-18 get about 6.4 hours a day, or 45 hours a week, of use on electronic devices or screen time, a disparity that further highlights the need for TV parental control.

The Mikko Que is a unique, revolutionary device that helps with Internet, video game, and TV parental control. As the best parental control device on the market, the Mikko Que allows parents to easily create TimeKeys out of ordinary USB thumb drives. When a child inserts his or her customized TimeKey into the Mikko Que, the Que will allow the child to watch TV only for the amount of time a parent allows. So, if a parent programs the child's TimeKey to watch 2 hours of TV per day, then the Mikko Que will cut off the TV signal once those 2 hours are over.

By introducing the Mikko TV parental control at an early age, parents can teach children important lessons about time management and living a balanced, well-rounded life. Learn more about managing screen time with the Mikko Que by contacting us today.
