I have my 91 yr old Dad living with me---He continually channel surfs--staying on one TV station only a few seconds.

Asked by

Is this channel surfing behavior a warning sign to any particular problem other than age and boredom ?

My mother used to do that. It drove me crazy when I'd go visit with her and dad. She did it cause dad didn't stop her, and she ran the show. My husband tends to channel surf, but that's because he doesn't use the 'guide' that you can call up on the TV, and instead just surfs around. I call it, 'mindless surfing'. ha. Oh well...
