I recently heard Michelle Obamaspeak
about Childhood Obesity in America, and she offered some good strategies on how
to address it. I think, however, the first step should be to eliminate how much
tv is available to kids, because we know that when you watch tv, you aren’t
active. All you have to do is go to DIRECTV.com and browse the listings and you
will see show after show geared toward children. It didn’t use to be that way.
When I was a kid, it was just Saturday mornings, really, that kids’ tv programs
were even on. Now that have shows available for kids to watch from the time they
wake up in the morning until the time they go to bed at night. I know this is a
free country, and we have free speech and all that, so I don’t know if this
could even be changed, but it sure seems to me like a big root of the problem.
You can say it is up to parents to regulate, but most parents aren’t.
