Television is a big part of today’s society.
TV is a medium of communication, information and entertainment.
For this reason, the television is become an essential part of us routine.
Most families have more than one television in their houses.
Thus, young people contact televisions at a very young age.
And few programs teach children important skills such as math, reading, science or problem solving.
It certainly has much to offer, and without a doubt is a great innovation, but The negative effects of television are huge.
Our passions, time, and even the our personal freedoms are sacrificed without us being aware of it.
Furthermore, when children watch television frequently and indiscriminately, the effects can be detrimental.
In my opinion the problem with children is that, they do not have the wisdom to discriminate, between what is good and what is bad for them.
Furthermore, television will discourage and replace reading.
Kids from families that have the TV on a lot invest less time reading and being read to and are less likely to be able to read.
In addition, the side effects of watching TV on our health can be pretty serious.
Watching television means inactivity, obesity and heart disease.
The television causes kids to become too used to violence.
The kids see so many violent acts on TV that they think that violence is normal and acceptable.
I also believe that watching too much television can lead to engaging in risky behaviors.
When you're detached from the real world and living primarily in the world you see portrayed on television, you may be influenced to engage in the behaviors you see on television, such as smoking, drinking, and doing illegal drugs.
I may conclude that, the advantages of Television are overshadowed by the adverse impact it has on a child's mind.
