Should kids be able to watch T.V. everyday non stop?
Debate Rounds (3)
Im against it because kids need to see the open world and not be put in a house all day.
Thanks for instigating this debate, Con.
It should be fun.
I affirm the resolution that kids should be able to watch T.V. everyday, non stop, because lacking the skill to watch TV is indicative of a physical or mental deficiency and that *should not* be the preferred condition of kids.
Therefore, I reaffirm that kids should always, every day, non stop, have the skill to watch T.V.
*Con's Problem With The Resolution*
"Im against it because kids need to see the open world and not be put in a house all day."
Well, if kids have the skill to see the open world, they would also have the skill to watch T.V.
At the least, both of those abilities require vision, so if Con thinks that kids shouldn't have the physical capacity to watch TV, then Con would be supporting the suppression of kids' physical capacity to see the open world, contrary to his suggestion.
I found definitions for none of the terms in the resolution, so I'll supply my own and help guide this debate.
should - used to indicate correctness.
kid - a child or young person.
able - having the skill to do something.
watch - look at or observe attentively.
T.V. - television programs.
everyday - daily.
On to Con...
I disagree because watching TV isn't a skill, if you watch it non stop you are being lazy and not getting the exercise you need and you will be unhealthy.
I'm equally not glad that Con thinks that watching TV requires no skill.
In order to look at something attentively, per the uncontested definitions from round 1, one needs the ability to see and the skill of focusing and retaining.
Kids should always have the skill to focus and retain information.
I argue that kids should everyday, non
The word "able," in this debate, means to have THE skill to do something.
Why would anyone want kids to lack THE skill of focusing and retaining information?
If you think kids should always, non
Of course kids should have the skill to focus attentively; it's how they learn.
