Are Fast Paced Cartoons Too Much for Your Child's Brain?

Your child’s brain can only handle so much at one time. If a lot of his energy is devoted to figuring out a fast-paced cartoon, he might not have a lot of brain power left to deal with, say, your request that he help pick up the living room.

The authors of the study were careful to point out that their study only looked at a small group of four-year-olds who watched 9 minutes of a TV show. It’s entirely possible that kids’ brains adjust to the faster pacing as they age and gain life experience.
