Parents turn off TV as get active in kids' lives

The data from the U.S. Census Bureau also showed that parents are taking a more active role in the lives of their children.

For example in 2004, 47 percent of teenagers were restricted in what they watched on television, when and for long, which was up from 40 percent in 1994. Among the 3- to 5-year-old set about 68 percent were limited in their television viewing, up from 54 percent, and 71 percent of children aged 6 to 11 faced restrictions, compared with 60 percent 10 years earlier.
