You didn't ask an obvious (to a parent!) question, which was about children's TV watching on the internet. Families can choose not to own a television set and still allow their children to watch television programs online.

Hi captain optimism,
Thank you for your comment! You were right that today's children do spend a significant amount of screen time online. We are aware of the similarities and differences between watching video online and viewing TV. However, in this study we had to prioritize on TV due to limited time and resources. We will definitely look into other forms of screen use in future research and really appreciate your input!
