TV Has An Adverse Impact On Grades

Study shows that reducing TV time has a greater impact on increasing test scores, than increasing study time.

Help students by getting them involved in activities other than TV.

These boys read, bike, boat and skate. 

Their mother worked hard to get them involved in activities before considering turning on the TV.  As a result of their mother reading with them and working hard to provide books of interest, they don't have to watch TV to be entertained.  They also don't have to study as hard as many other kids who watch a lot of TV.
