Executive function comprises a series of higher-order cognitive abilities of individuals that can effectively regulate their behavior and thinking. It has three main components: working memory, inhibition, and set shifting. Young children need to use their executive function to make plans, eliminate interference, keep focused, and memorize and retain information, as well as to adapt themselves to different rules and perform self-monitoring. Childhood executive function affects children’s development in various aspects, such as psychology, social adaptation, early language ability, etc. It can also predict their later academic achievements and lay a foundation for the development of higher cognitive competences in their adulthood. Television is one of the most popular electronic media. Existing research on the impact of television exposure on child development found that children’s television viewing time is somewhat correlated with their executive function.
