Better TV Improves Children’s Behavior According to Studies

February 27, 2013

Michelle Healy and Donna Gordon Blankinship both had separate articles hit the streets regarding the latest studies involving young children and TV. Television content DOES affect behavior. No DUH! Michelle Healy’s article was reprinted in the Reno Gazette Journal. I found Donna Blankinship’s article on-line when I googled to find the first one. Here are the two articles:

Michelle Healy’s: Study: Kids’ behavior improves with better TV content

Donna Gordon Blankinship’s: Study: Better TV Might Improve Children’s Behavior

Michelle Healy also mentions another (New Zealand) study in (I’m guessing) her original article for USAToday: USAToday. I found an abstract for it here: Childhood and Adolescent Television Viewing and Antisocial Behavior in Early Adulthood

Congratulations to Pete Freischlag – recognized as 2012 Coach of the Year by the Illinois High School Tennis Coaches Association

February 3, 2013

Way to go, Pete!! Congrats to you, your teams and your very, very special family and family ties! So proud of your achievements! Never in my days of sitting in Jim Rees’ math classes in 1968-1971 or babysitting your wife, Deb, and her brothers when they were little, would I have expected to be so proud of her hubby, the tennis teams at Downers Grove South, DGHSS itself, and the impact you have made for all the world – i.e. sharing your son with Central College ! Fine accomplishment! I thoroughly enjoyed the Suburban Life article!
