Youngsters 'prefer TV to family'

It's official! BBCNews reports in 'Youngsters 'prefer TV to family'' that children spend little time with their parents, and much more time watching television than reading books:

Research accompanying the government-backed Booktime literacy project shows that youngsters spend little of their spare time with adults.

It says that, in some families, shared meal times are only 17 minutes per day.

A survey of 1,800 families suggested it was a struggle for UK parents to find more time to read with children.
