Couch Potato


 This is a special entry to answer Diyana's question regarding my list of "Young children should be banned from". She asked "What is the meaning of couch potato?".

I'll provide two photos that I took from GOOGLE image first and then there'll be a simple explanation about the term.

The meaning(taken from Urban Dictionary):

1. a lazy person who does nothing but sit on the couch and watch television(see also sofa spud)
     Please don't lie around like a couch potato. Get up and do something productive.

2.  Someone who lies on the sofa every spare moment of his/her life, watching television and normally    eating.
                 "You're such a couch potato!" 
 *this term is actually a slang and it's commonly used in American English.

I included the term "Couch Potato" because I don't want our young children to have a sedentary lifestyle. Thus, we really have to make sure that our children should be banned from being a couch potato. It's not a healthy thing to do and it has more bad effects on children. (as well as on adults)
