Do you suffer from TV Head?

If you haven't heard, we are in the middle of TV Turnoff Week. I have been encouraging my students to decrease their screen time (i.e. TV, computer, and games) and do some different things, like go outside and enjoy the beautiful weather we've been having. Now, I'm encouraging you to do the same.

Before you move away from this screen though, check out the link above and click on the "Facts and Figures" section. The connections between number of hours spent watching tv and reading scores are amazing. There also serious health implications regarding Attention Deficit Disorder, obesity, diabetes, migraines, and general pains. And, of course, there's TV Head, as illustrated below.

Okay, now you can move away from the screen...
