One third of children in Israel live below the poverty line, the annual report of the National Council for the child found. According to the report, presented on Sunday to President Moshe Katsav, there are 192,000 children who live in single-parent households. Other data showed that the favorite pastime of children and adolescents is hanging out at malls and shopping centers. Books came in second. In addition, the report concluded that 60% of those aged 12-17 watch television for at least three hours every weekday.
