Hi

When a kid sits too close to the television while watching it, we often tell them to move some distance away from it. So what's the right way to say, 'Watch TV from a distance.'?

Please help.


Thank you.

I say ‘Move further back’.

Thank you.

Don't sit so close.

Don't sit so close would be another possibility.

Thank you for your response.

I am, however, looking for a single sentence which includes the words "watch TV" along with the instruction to move further back or not to sit so close.

Something like:

  • Move further back and watch TV.
  • Don't sit so close and watch TV.

Are these sentences good, or is there a better way to say the same thing?

Please help.


Thank you.

I would get specific. "When you watch TV, stay at least six feet away from the screen." You could work the other phrases into that. ""When you watch TV, stay farther back." "When you watch TV, don't sit so close."

writingtosmsSomething like:Move further back and watch TV.Don't sit so close and watch TV.

They are awkward. They would be simpler and better as move back from the TV or don't sit so close to the TV.
