Will sitting too close to the television hurt my child's eyes?

Compared to grown-ups, children have an increased ability to focus on the picture while sitting close to the television or while holding a book to read, without straining their eyes too much. Sitting too close to the television, will at the most have an eye-straining effect. However, it is a habit which children grow out of as they grow older.
