IS TELEVISION USEFUL OR HARMFUL FOR KIDS?


So much television programming is aimed at young children. Much of it appears to be educational: teaching about the world and developing life skills. But there is a question to discuss: is television useful or harmful for kids?

A great deal of research has been done on the effects of television on children's lives. Nearly all of us have one or more TV sets in our home, and since most of us watch some TV nearly every day, we may not want to hear what research tells us, but these are the things we need to know.

Experts suspect that babies younger than two years old view TV as a confusing array of colours, images, and noises. They don't understand much of the content. 

Cartoons and many children's shows are filled with images of violence. Many children's shows are animated versions of adult action films. Research shows that watching this type of programming increases the risk of aggressive behavior and desensitizes (знижує чутливість) children and teenagers to violence.

Television watching can be addictive sometimes. The more children watch, the more they want to watch. They can become drawn to the set. Once addicted, turning off the TV can become a daily battle. Those who watch TV very often become passive and loose their natural creativity; they eventually have a hard time keeping themselves busy, and they lose valuable time that should be dedicated to 'play' the foundation of a healthy childhood and the primary way that very young children learn.

Many teenagers use TV more to keep themselves entertained and happy. It takes a strong will and dedication to avoid the easy route provided by this free and easy but sometimes dangerous friend. Time spent watching television is time taken away from more healthful activities that nurture (виховують) growth and development.

Children and teenagers who watch a lot of television are at risk for poor social development, and aggressive behavior. According to the study by Yale Family Television Research, teachers characterized children who watched excessive (надмірно) television as less cooperative, less imaginative, less enthusiastic about learning, and less happy than those who watched little or no TV.

You may have noticed that all of these points demonstrate the negative aspects of children watching TV, and you're wondering if there are any positives. There are a few, but let's be honest: we have to be very creative to come up with this list, since published research doesn't demonstrate many good points for putting a young child in front of a television. But we need to be realistic that most of us aren't going to put our TVs in the closet or get rid of them at all.

IS TELEVISION USEFUL OR HARMFUL FOR KIDS?


So much television programming is aimed at young children. Much of it appears to be educational: teaching about the world and developing life skills. But there is a question to discuss: is television useful or harmful for kids?

A great deal of research has been done on the effects of television on children's lives. Nearly all of us have one or more TV sets in our home, and since most of us watch some TV nearly every day, we may not want to hear what research tells us, but these are the things we need to know.

Experts suspect that babies younger than two years old view TV as a confusing array of colours, images, and noises. They don't understand much of the content. 

Cartoons and many children's shows are filled with images of violence. Many children's shows are animated versions of adult action films. Research shows that watching this type of programming increases the risk of aggressive behavior and desensitizes (знижує чутливість) children and teenagers to violence.

Television watching can be addictive sometimes. The more children watch, the more they want to watch. They can become drawn to the set. Once addicted, turning off the TV can become a daily battle. Those who watch TV very often become passive and loose their natural creativity; they eventually have a hard time keeping themselves busy, and they lose valuable time that should be dedicated to 'play' the foundation of a healthy childhood and the primary way that very young children learn.

Many teenagers use TV more to keep themselves entertained and happy. It takes a strong will and dedication to avoid the easy route provided by this free and easy but sometimes dangerous friend. Time spent watching television is time taken away from more healthful activities that nurture (виховують) growth and development.

Children and teenagers who watch a lot of television are at risk for poor social development, and aggressive behavior. According to the study by Yale Family Television Research, teachers characterized children who watched excessive (надмірно) television as less cooperative, less imaginative, less enthusiastic about learning, and less happy than those who watched little or no TV.

You may have noticed that all of these points demonstrate the negative aspects of children watching TV, and you're wondering if there are any positives. There are a few, but let's be honest: we have to be very creative to come up with this list, since published research doesn't demonstrate many good points for putting a young child in front of a television. But we need to be realistic that most of us aren't going to put our TVs in the closet or get rid of them at all.

We need to be realistic and acknowledge that we aren't going to put our TV's in the closet or get rid of them at all.
