Two studies published in quick succession by a team from Laval University in the Canadian Journal of Behavioral Sciences and in Frontiers in Psychology arrive at conclusions that collide head-on with a preconceived idea: the time spent watching TV by children elementary school has a negligible effect on their academic success and on their reading skills.
How to explain this result which may surprise many? “One possibility is that the time spent watching TV would not have been used to carry out activities promoting academic success. Young people also need moments of relaxation. There comes a time when what a child does with their time will not change their academic performance. ”
