  • Kids grow up

    So they need to learn that something's are bad because it is a part of growing up in life because be honest every parent has done something bad when they were there Childs age. Soo this case it is a no brainer its bad but just let them learn it is bad themself.

  • Television is a bad influence to children from ages 2-6.

    Kids can take tv the wrong way. So for example they could watch wrestling then want to try it on someone such as a brother or sister and can hurt them badly. The use of alcohol and drugs on television is so common now days, that a child could say, "oh yah thats cool let me try it."

  • Yes it is a horrible influence

    Yes T.V is a bad influence a child comes home from a day of school and watches T.V then they go to school the next and can not think of anything besides T.V really do you think T.V is a good influence on kids. I just ask you to think.

  • Yes,TV is a bad influence.

    TV can be one of the worse influences in someone's life.It tends to make people somewhat lazy and greedy because they see commercials and don't think they can lead complete lives unless they have that particular product.It also tends to make people feel that reality should match more of a fantasy life.

  • TV has gone from being mediocre to bad.

    If you had asked me this question even 10 or 15 years ago, I would have thought it ridiculous. But after a generation or two of reality TV, I have to say that yes. Yes, TV is a bad influence. So many cable and satellite channels who have discovered that trashy shows with trashy people famous for the sake of simply existing and kids emulating that, is a bad thing.

  • TV is a bad influence.

    Television is bad influence because it is a waste of time and it often resorts to sensational stories of sex and violence. A lot of television programs are restricted to certain ages because of their explicit contents. Kids should not be exposed to much of the violence and sex on television today.

  • TV can be a bad influence.

    Television can be a bad influence. Watching comedy that makes jokes at other people's expense teaches people cruelty. Watching drama's with violence desensitizes people toward hurt that people experience in real life. Watching shows that glorify infidelity, homosexuality, and illegal drug activities lead people to believe that this is the norm rather than the exception. What we watch on television goes into our mind and changes our views forever.

  • Yes, TV is a bad influence.

    I believe that TV is a bad influence. Kids watch passively as people are gunned down and murdered on TV shows. They are removed from the grief and pain that death actually causes. On reality shows such as "The Bachelor" they don't get a true sense for what it means to fall in love for someone. Love is just dating 10 women at a time and jumping into the hot tub with them. And commercials with terribly thin women have made young girls yearn to be thin and beautiful at any cost.

  • Children arent over influenced by tv!!!!!!!!!

    If children are watching TV and one of their favorite cartoon characters jump off a bridge doesn't mean they are going to do it too. Besides kids don't really watch TV so much they mostly play outside or play video games. So TV isn't really that bad of a influence.

  • No i am a teenager.

    You immediatley assumed that oh here we go this is just some young person who is stupid. I think teenager can help anyone deal with complex emotions problems. Help in development of growth. Television is wonderful so many people can learn new ideas take Doctor Who for instance, this tv show which is not called a childerens tv programe is actually loved by many childeren, it deals with issuses of racism, homosexuality, belief, humainity and deal with science based subjects and still be creative and colourful so that tv can be used as a tool to help. You can't blame a tv show for the cause of hate or anger. A tv show can cause you emotion but it cant physically make you do anything or mentally even thats you. Thats you picking up the negative from tv when you can take the positive.

  • Depends on what you are watching

    Television can be a bad influence, if the wrong age group is watching the wrong material. However, TV can also be educational. For example, the content on Travel Channel and The Learning Channel can be very helpful for young people to learn more about other cultures, for example in the world.

  • TV is Not a Bad Influence

    No, television is not a bad influence. Like all forms of media, television is neutral. The types of television programs one chooses to watch may or may not be a bad influence based upon their content, but television itself is only a medium to deliver those shows. Thus, television is not a bad influence.

  • No. I cant even believe this is up for debate

    TV is awesome. If u think about how many people actually watch TV , then think about how many people do bad things constantly, then think about what they're watching and if it even relates to what they do. Then you will know if TV is a bad influence on your CHILD OR ADULT it doesn't mean its a bad for everyone

  • Not really t it can be.

    It all depends on the parent of the child. If the child seems ready to watch more mature shows like Family Guy or Law and Order, it will all depend on the parent of the child. That is all to this subject, some parents wont think that their children are not ready for more mature programing then that's their decision. If the parent of the child finds the child ready to watch such shows then that's their decision.

  • No, not in and of itself.

    Television is entertainment (even the news, these days, is mostly a joke) and should be treated as such. It is the job of the parent, or the individual in the case of adults, to moderate how much time is spent in front of the tv. Programming is dictated by rating so rather than saying tv is a bad influence on people, I would say that people are a bad influence on tv. After all, do we REALLY NEED more Jersey Shore or America's Top Model and other such vapid shows?
