  • T.V. has a bad influence

    It actually depends on what shows they choose to watch/what shows their parents let them watch. If all they watch in National geographic that's educational, but if their parents don't care what they watch or the kids can choose, they are more likely to choose cartoons and/or inappropriate shows that WILL have a bad influence on them.

    Staring at a screen too long can cause eye strain
    Children who watch 4 h of TV per day are likely to be overweight
    The brain isn’t active while watching TV which is not healthy
    Watching TV takes away time that a child needs to gain skills like language, creativity, motor, and social skills. These skills are gained in a child’s first two years (which is the time for brain development) through play, exploration, and conversation.
    Kids who watch TV are also less likely to read books and other print media

    Younger children can’t tell the difference between reality vs fantasy and try to bring the world of TV into the real world which can bring violence and inappropriate behavior.
    Some kids like to imitate characters on movies and shows which can lead to risky behaviors, swearing and fighting.
    The more TV you watch the more commercials you watch, the more things you want to buy, the more money you spend.


    3. TV Takes Up A Lot Of Time And It’s Expensive
    Not much kids have quality time to spend with their family because TV drains most of their time
    When watching TV you don’t get to interact with other people around you so lots of kids aren't socialized properly because of TV

    TV’s are very expensive and so is the electricity bill that comes with it every time you watch something some people have also Netflix which is $8.99 per month
    Lots of shows are dangerous for children's eyes to see.
    Kids watch more than 40,000 commercials a year

  • Television is really a bad influence on society because it only manipulate people.

    I don't see the point of people watching TV because it only manipulate them on doing what they shouldn't be doing and making them lazy, so why wasting your time on watching it if it's not going to help you become successful in the future, how about we teenagers, focus more on school and other important things in our lives instead of TV who's not doing anything but destroying our lives.

  • TV is a bad influence

    Television is a very bad influence because young children of America are being taught how to be violent, and even some movies or TV shows are teaching our young Americans to be a bad student, do drugs, and bully. I am a fan for movies that are against bullying, like cyber bully. I think the society should change the inappropriateness of the television shows today.

  • Yes, TV is a bad influence on the youth of America.

    Yes, TV is a bad influence on the youth of America. Violence on tv is out of control and gives youth ideas that they would have never thought of without seeing it on tv and it desensitizes them to human suffering. Youth who watch large amounts of tv are also less active and more likely to be obese.

  • TV Negative Influence

    In America, television is a pretty bad influence on the youth of the country. Children and teens spend hundreds of hours per month watching TV, and they rarely learn anything useful. Television today is more designed for entertainment rather than education, which means that children need to spend less time with television.

  • TV is a bad influence on the youth of America.

    Television is a bad influence on young people because it is too commercial. Television channels do not provide quality entertainment but instead seek to attract viewers with sensationalist programs featuring explicit and sex and violence. Kids should instead be reading books or interacting with people their own age rather than wating time watching TV.

  • Yes, TV is a bad influence to the youth of America.

    Watching a large amount of TV can be very harmful to a persons personality and views about what is important in life. TV features lies, bad, and dangerous behavior that can be learned or acted on if consumed often and frequently. This is why I believe that TV should not be encouraged in families at such a young age.

  • Yes, TV is a bad doing bad influence on the youth of America.

    In America, TV is portraying Nudity and crime as major shows. This influence younger generation to get perverted.
    There are less shows that show the correct path but more shows that influence to take wrong path.
    Example: There are some channels which shows continuous crime investigations, which obviously be intersting but also giving more examples of doing it.

  • Tv is an option it is up to the parents

    You have parents for a reason they decide if you can watch what you wants\ and you have educational channels such as pbs young americans watch shows on there own times nobel prize winners used to watch tv i bet you... Its true you you yes people think ronald reagon never watched some full house

  • Bad Parents are a Bad Influence on Youth

    Television isn't the problem with youth in America. Bad parents are the problem in America. More and more single mothers give birth every day. Men who don't stick around to be fathers is the primary reason youth have bad influences. Men who abandon their women leave these kids trapped in a culture of welfare for years that is very hard to get out of in today's under-employed world.

  • I do not think TV is a bad influence on the youth of America.

    I do not think TV is a bad influence on the youth of America. It is unfair to make a sweeping generalization about a medium like TV. Of course there are a lot of trashy programs, but there are also a lot of really good and educational programs as well.

  • TV is not a bad influence on the youth of America.

    TV is not a bad influence on the youth of America. It just depends on what they are watching and how long they are allowed to watch. I know when it is cold outside, my child watches more TV than normal and after about a couple days, she is addicted to it and if you try to take it away, you are faced with a struggle. If you limit the child's amount of TV they can watch, then the outcome is a more productive child.
