Do children watch too much television? A question that we didn’t need to ask ourselves too much in the past, but now that it’s a common household item that children have easy access to, this question has been brought up a lot now than ever.

Then other systems like xBox Kinect, where you can play without even a controller, make it so a child can have a feel of the experience of the game their playing.
