TV and ADHD - Another Reason to Blame Your Mom 

TV rots your brains, right? I won't argue to the contrary, but a new study contradicts a previous one that suggested that TV viewing in early childhood causes ADHD. I'm not totally clear on the methodology of the survey, but it seems to suggest that the increased TV viewing associated with ADHD may be more of a symptom than a cause: parents of hyperactive kids may put them in front of the TV more to avoid dealing with them.

So, basically, bad parenting is involved: parents who have hyperactive kids and don't want to take the time to, you know, raise them, end up with older kids with worse (more frequently diagnosed) ADHD....hey, let's go ride our bikes!
