Television in a way makes children lazy as they sit behind it doing nothing and usually they gain less from television than from books. It may be argued that it can be watched during our leisure but students spend all their free time watching televison instead of dividing it and doing more profitable stuff.

Media is ugly filthy and dirty. It shouldn't exist. But alas it does. That is harmful to everyone, not just children and students. But on this group is the greatest impact. T.V. has fake trash in it that misleads stupid children, who don't know any better and who's parents can't raise them properly and teach them what's bad.
Even though there are many attempts at developing educational programs for children and students, I believe that television does more harm than good. For every Sesame Street, there are 100 Spongebobs. And, I believe that children's attention spans are being harmed by television, as well.
I believe that television can be a good tool in educating children and students. However, it is very rarely used as such, considering that quality educational programs are few and far between. Instead, children are typically allowed to make their own programming choices, and those choices that are most appealing contain violence. This desensitizes children to violence and gives them a warped impression of the world.
Rather than increasing the educational channels, television are promoting harmful programs such as violence, sexual activities and also drugs. Television promotes harmful programs rather than focusing on education. Violence is the common activity promoted by television by movies, game shows and also cartoons. Therefore, can cause people to act the same way in which these actors and actresses act in theses shows. Violence is actually informing their audience to portray their behavior towards their families, friends, and also people in authority. Television promotes guns and knives which would then lead up to causing violence. Sexual activities are also promoted by television through reality shows, movies and also cartoon. A major priority should be the safety of our child watching TV. Most cartoons are based on sexual activities. Most movies at lease must have a seen which contains sexual activities. Some shows theses days would show you how to seek around police and laws to sell drugs or also to create and use drugs. Would this make the economy better in promoting the creation and also distribution of drugs? Hell no, by showing young teens and children how to do this would be saying that we are as community that we are supporting this unlawful behavior. In conclusion, television is not only used to entertain and education but to promote all the harmful behavior and activities that would make our economy in danger. Television has become more a harm that good to young teens and children. We should at lease limit or control in what kids theses days are watching to enhance their skill in knowing wrong from right and to sure this in their daily lives.
I believe television causing more harm than good to children and students because watching too much may cause students to do badly in there studies, because they start devoting more time to watching TV than studying.
Television causes much more harm than good. Yes, there are programs that are good but majority of the programs (including children's programs) promote promiscuity, violence and bad language. This unknowingly encourages the children to these behavioural patterns making them rude, selfish and violent. We as parents should teach our children from a young age to do brain stimulating activities such as puzzles, encourage them to read good books and choose to spend time with them (playing sports, interesting board games) instead of watching the television ourselves. In this way we can have family time, the children have our attention and they will be occupied as well.
TV is unconsciously influences our decisions. Forces us to believe the falsehood. Hampers our basic beliefs. Distorts family system. Makes children disobedient. It takes up our precious time. Programs like loose talks and talk shows are just a game of words and nothing else. The opposing parties shown in such shows are not in-fact the opposing ones.
Children (and adults) would be better off in creative endeavors such as gardening, fixing a project car, quilting and sewing, painting, photography, even participatory sports. Television offers no benefit other than for advertisers and propaganda outlets. Television takes time that can never be recovered. There is no reason to raise a child on the TeeVee drug.
Movies and television programs usually portraits heroism in the wrong sense. Films usually portrait a hero as a person who is handsome and strong person instead of showing him as a noble person. There is a lot of violence in many films, certain characters of the film go on killing people and the public enjoy it. At times children imitate it. Thus instead of teaching the value of peace television induces crime and violence.
Girls learn that the LOOK is the most important part of them. They feel they have to look beautiful to be worthy. The same applied to boys: "You have to HAVE things and GIRLS to be SOMEBODY". The main media theme is: "You deserve good sex and no negative consequences of promiscuity, don't even thing about it. EVER." And of course the second main theme is: "You are worthy only of what you own". We threw away our TV set 15 years ago. It was one of the best decisions.
Television teaches children to lie, insubordination, to be sassy, also that there's no God, to follow their hearts, which isn't useful, to do what they want and not what they've been told and so. I've read that it makes their imagination remain undeveloped and it stays for life. Literally Television makes children dumb!
If we watch TV for a long time we might waste money.Try not watching TV for just one day a week. Make sure to replace that time with another activity that's equally or more satisfying. In other words, don't replace TV time with a task you dread. The task might be noble (such as cleaning the fireplace, or raking leaves, or giving the cat a bath) but such endeavors are best left to when you've already phased TV out of your life. Right now, the best way to wean yourself off of TV is to replace it with another enjoyable activity, but one that's more constructive or engaging, like reading a book, practicing to be a guitar god, or playing drown the penny with your kids. Eventually, increase the number of days per week when you don't watch TV, until there are none (if you wish to go that far).
Yes it is causing more harm than good. Nowadays children instead of spending their leisure time for tv, they sit in in front of the television for the whole day. There are many good things on tv but at the same there are many things that are just meant for entertainment. Students cant resist themselves from daily serials, reality shows,etc. This causes bad grades, distraction from studies and lots more.
As a 20 year old student, who spends countless hours on the computer and television each night as well as at school and at work, I can see how people perceive this utmost desire for motion picture screens; for it allows everything to work in this fast-paced economy. Yet, seeing younger children more and more attached to screens, (I have a 10 year old little brother) to spend that amount of hours doing anything that does not effectively allow you to procreate creatively is absolutely not beneficial. As I see it watching television to just past the time, which I do every single day, is really only help your body relax for the period of time, not including your eyes. On top of that one of the major arguments for the problems presented by our modern media is that it is pushing values that are not true to fact.
I.E., Instant gratifications, things will fix themselves, if something does not work throw it out and replace.
These ideals are hopelessly rooted in our train of thought whether or not you watch television ever. The problem I personally see throughout people my age, my self. My parents, and all the older and younger people in this country is that they expect without doing.
If you are not gaining your education and knowledge through any kind of hard work, it is merely leisure, and a mind in a state of leisure is not growing, it is creating within itself. In order to have an effect in this world you must create outside of yourself. What use is an artist or speaker who keeps everything to himself? Thus what is proclaimed to each student when he/she is stuck at a computer for hours and hours. The answers already exist, just learn and memorize?
Yes, television is causing harm to our education. Obviously, it is not going to leave anytime soon, but perhaps we should once again learn the act of speaking face-to-face from time to time.
So many TV shows are adult and sexual that you would think its all people want to know about but at the same time shows like that are also very good for teens to watch and also have messages in them that really do get across than someone shouting at them. Lots of shows are not good for young children but in all honestly shows are becoming more and more about everyday life and what goes on in the world so I would say yes but at the same time its a shame parents have to be careful. I think more shows need to be aimed at children not just 17 right up to 40, but I can think of a few shows that are okay for young children there just isn't enough of them. But for us teens and adults I think some really good shows have come out that really does grab us. Im not one for saying TV is bad because there is to much sex and drugs and what not cause if you look at most shows that have it it all comes from reason and logic.
TV has both good and bad channels according to a parent point of view but according to me channels like discovery,national geographic etc also provide information based on daily life, fiction , science which is a good source of knowledge for children and these channels also have sub-channels for kids .Also TV provides a entertaining way for absorbing knowledge which makes it simple for the child or the student understand.
Television mislead our childre in many different ways. The way they saw children may behave towards their parents, our children may want to practice and behave in the same manner towards they parents .... They become rude, agressive and indiscipline. They also may want to practice things that are not appropriate for them .
As a parent, my duty of care is taking care of my kids, assisting their development at the earlier stage and showing them what they have to do and don't have to including the habit of watching television. In average ages of 3 - 14, children tend to spend their time by watching TV. In this occasion, I have to make sure the the program selected is suitable to my kids and can educate them through watching useful program.
Televison s good because no parents have tme to spend with their kids, Televsion is a way for kids to learn about behavior and dscipline, it teaches us right from wrong more than our parents do themselves. Tv helped me to grow up it can even make you decide on the carrer you want to choose
The television nowadays benefit the children showing them places they may never have the chance to visit.. So the parental control is the key to turn the television into a knowledge source... And so I have completed my essay for the English lesson :) .. Thank you for reading it
You see, I watch movies and shows that teach me how to do things or what things look like. I suggest that we learn more from what we watch. This is why we should never stop children and teens from watching. I demand that we have watch more, better shows rather than sit and do nothing. It also helps us from being bored.
Many TV shows now are more or less aimed at teens and adults and I agree there are not many shows for children but I wouldn't say TV is bad by all means. Lots of shows now are about the real world and what life is about and I think shows like that get better messages across than someone shouting at you. I have no issue with shows that contain sex, drugs and so on its all part of adult TV. Now yes there needs to be more shows that children can choose from but sadly there isn't many most shows now are aimed at 17 all the way up to 40 year olds which is a shame but it doesn't stop any show what so ever from being good and having fantastic storylines.
I believe that people know the difference between what is portrayed on television as fiction, and what is real. I think that the influence that television has on young people is exaggerated. They are probably exposed to too many commercials and misleading advertising, but I don't think that is innately harmful.
There are many educational shows on television nowadays, making people who can't afford to go places or see things be able to learn and grow intellectually. For example, small children can learn many things from shows such as sesame street and Dora. Older students can also benefit by watching shows on national geographic and the history channel. Like take me, for instance. I get good grades in the eighth grade, and I probably watch at least 2 hours of shows a day. They also have new parental blocking systems on some TV networks for those finicky parents that believe SpongeBob can rot your brain.
It boils down to what they are allowed to watch, if all the parents are allowing them to do is watch shows like jersey shore and other nonsense shows that teach nothing more than how to fulfill a stereotype or movies that are coming from Hollywood in a way its desensitizing them, but there is also a positive that can come from that; if that child grows up to join the military they will be desensitized to violent images which may help them cope with what they see and deal with, or if something happens that's emotionally stressing or psychologically damaging those who were desensitized have a higher chance of coping with that situation because they've been desensitized to issues like that. But it all boils down to what they're allowed to watch, if they watch the history channel, or national geographic then they're bound to learn something, they can have fun and watch the pure entertainment but the parents have to make sure they also watch shows where they can actually learn something.
