In Poland television has been broad casted since 1956 year. From that time a lot of things has changed. Nowadays, television-set is in almost every house, often even more than one. People spend a lot of time, watching tv programs. It has become a part of life for many people. It is hard to say is the television good or bad because there is many both advantages and disadvantages of it. I will try to mention some of them.
I think, the most important advantage of television is that it is a huge source of information's, knowledge and entertainment. There are plenty of channels with different topics. It provides every kind of information's and entertainment: Great films, shows, documentaries, science programs, cartoons and so on. You can watch the newest information's from all the world, it helps you to be up-to-date. You only have to turn on your tv-set and you can get some news. Sometimes it is very convenient. Watching television can be also great way to spend a free time. There are some really interesting programs about for example our hobbies. It can by also good way to spend evening, watching curious films.
From the other hand, there are also many disadvantages on watching television. It become to be very popular and common. Almost everyone has his own tv-set. People spend to much time watching stupid programs and shows. They become a slaves of 21' black box. You can't talk with them about anything isn't connected with television. Their life is depend on tv-schedule. The whole families watches television eating dinner, sapper, spending their free time in this way. Instead of going to the park, wood, to the lake or for a trip.
Nowadays there is many violence on tv. Jung children are watching full of violence and brutality cartoons and movies. They spend whole day siting in front of screen. Every tv-station broadcasts many commercials, the movies are being interrupted and we are watching commercials for few minutes. We also have to single out the really interesting programs and movies because there is many stupid and boring programs.
I have show only a few features of television. Of course it is only a small part. Watching television can give us many positives things like news, entertainment and knowledge but it can by also dangerous. I watch very rarely television, generally only eating my breakfast or sapper. I am not interested in information's from the world and I have much better ways to spend my free time...ofcourse if I have it.
It is not a bad thing if the parents control the watching of TV. The problem with todays children is that they sit in front of the TV permanently so they don't exercise anymore and they also don't know how to interact with other people because the only way they know how to act is by what they see on TV.
The scenes of sex, crime and violence in the films have an adverse effect on children. They begin to regard violent and immoral actions as a part of life and develop an aggressive outlook. The romantic scenes, which are frequently depicted in songs and dance sequences, transport the children to make believe world. In such films they are indirectly made to believe that by sheer luck and not through hard work, they can become heroes and heroines. Watching television if not controlled could do more harm than good to a child.
Many kids get glued onto it ... And also once they start ,they have program after program to watch and they become addicted to it . Its a huge waste of time for growing and studying children
Well its all depends upon children and their parents.. Because there are many advantages& disadvantages...
Disadvantage= young children are watching far too much tv these days. It is brain washing them and causing them to fantasise over these picture perfect images
It depends on the shows they watch and how much they watch. I read a study recently that while a child can learn something from a tv show (or video) they learn it much faster if taught by a real person. When my children were young, they watched dvds from a series called Baby Einstein. The videos played classical music and had nursery rhymes in different languages. My son was able to recognize several different composers when he was 2 years old. But I listened to classical music in the car too with them. I don't think that age appropriate television is bad for children is limited amounts. Most of the boys in my son's kindergarten class seem to have seen an awful lot of very violent movies that I would not even dream of letting my kids watch yet. They engage in some very aggressive play.
Television is a part of our life. Young people should be allowed to watch it as a daily routine as long as they are watching programs suitable for their age, which should include some of the news reports. There should also be a time limit so that TV does not interfere with other essential activities such as school work, physical work/play and family time.
TV by itself is not bad for anyone. Uncontrolled and excessive watching are what ruin the child.
