Screen time for kids

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A new study finds getting our kids off the couch and outside can help so much more than their weight.

Researchers from the University College London studied 1500 children and found those who spent the most time in front of the TV or computer had more psychological distress, behavior problems and trouble getting along with their peers.

Researchers suggest doctors and parents continue to try getting children into sports or outside play and limit their TV and computer time.
