Watching Television is bad for children.

18 Apr

It is usually said that watching television is bad for children. Many experiences with the kids around me has made me believe that this is true.

First of all, watching television is really addictive. Even grown-ups get hooked to a show they have been watching and obviously children are no different. Children these days spend most of their free time watching television. And, to such an extent that they sometimes even pay little attention to their daily activities! First thing they do after returning from school is turning on the television. Some children need to be in front of television even while eating. I know this for a fact since my cousins do the same. Apart from giving them less time to spend with their family, this affects their studies greatly as well.

Secondly, television has taken away the children’s time to play and exercise. Back when we are little kids, we used to go out and play a lot. But, these days, kids are reluctant to step out of the television room. No wonder obesity is spreading so much more these days than in previous years. The only exercise kids these days do seems to be of their fingers; using the remote control. And, also television shows a lot of shows or programs, advertisements which are not suitable for children. They learn a lot of things from watching television; violent actions and negative messages also fall under that. Children might get the false idea that such fights and acts are okay since the programs are full of them. This will not only affect their present behavior but might also have a negative impact on their future life as well.

Even though watching television has various negative impacts, the positive aspects associated with it can’t also be forgotten. It is a means of entertainment and enjoyment. The pressure of studies, the difficulties in solving a problem can all be forgotten momentarily while watching television. And, it’s not like the shows only give out negative vibe and examples. Kids can get positive and encouraging messages that will be beneficial for them.

In conclusion, I would like to say that watching television too much is not good for children however it ought not to be stopped completely.
