British children prefer Internet surfing to watching TV

A recent survey of UK families by the Family Assurance Group has revealed that surfing the Internet is now seven times more popular among British children than watching television. ... The survey also showed that some young Internet users spend up to 70 hours per week online. In addition very few families seem to use the Internet together, especially since a large number of children now have computers in their bedrooms. In comparison over a third of families, or 38%, watch television together.
