According to the University of Michigan Health System’s study in 2010, children spend about 28 hours per week (four hours a day) watching television. Many households “usually” have the TV on, even during meals. Children often have televisions in their own bedrooms, and as they get older there are fewer and fewer rules about what they can and cannot watch. Television is traditionally thought of as the anti-education tool: after all, children mindlessly absorb television content and spend less time reading, doing homework, or interacting with others.
As the Coptic Orthodox church is very concerned about the future of our kids and the information they grasp while watching TV, CYC started a new TV service to protect children from bad information and build the right concepts in their brain.
