France Bans Television Shows Aimed At Children Three And Under

Looks like Barney just might have to sell his summer home! In recent legislative news, France has banned television programs designed for children under three-years-old. Why would they do such a thing? Well, the High Audiovisual Council states:

Television viewing hurts the development of children under 3 years old and poses a certain number of risks, encouraging passivity, slow language acquisition, over-excitedness, troubles with sleep and concentration as well as dependence on screens.

Now don’t get too perturbed — the government can’t ban ALL television shows aimed at toddlers. Children can still be exposed to TV programs broadcast from foreign channels on cable but even they must broadcast the warning, “Watching television can slow the development of children under 3, even when it involves channels aimed specifically at them.”

What do you think? Will banning these kinds of programs make kids healthier and more active? Chime in and share your thoughts?
