Simple Ways to Get Your Kids to Watch Less TV

About a third of children watch more than the daily two hours of TV recommended as an upper limit. Here are some ways to cut down on that time.

Children and teenagers who say their parents had rules about TV and video games are much more likely to stay within the recommended limits, according to a new study. Two simple tactics worked best -- setting family rules for screen time and getting kids moving.

According to U.S. News & World Report:
