Computers can cause people to have trouble relating to others

In a study published in the March issue of the Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, Dr. Rose Richards of the University of Otago said: "Our findings give some reassurance that it is fine to limit TV viewing. In fact, it may result in stronger relationships between young people, their friends and their parents." The study concluded that staring at any screen for a long time is detrimental. Richards advised parents to stick to the recommended time limit of less than two hours of any screen use a day.
