Is T.V harmful for children?

      For the last 20-30 years, research and studies have corroborated that heavy television viewing may lead to serious health and mental consequences. Although T.V programs and shows could help children bulding their knowlege and communication skills, it also couses obesity, poor brain development lagging educational perfomance, sleep disturbance and diminished physical activity. However, people’s behavior has changed according to T.V shows they watch. Albert Bandura–psychologist– tried to explain the affects of T.V and how it could change the person’s behavior, he also found a relation between the T.V programs that people watch and their behavior, in his experiment, he observed two groups of children; the first group– the experimental, this group was exposed to a violence T.V program, where the second– group the control group was watching cartoon. After the two groups were finished watching, they were  gathered in one room in order to observe their behavior. The sychologiests found that the control group was playing with one another while the experimental group was acting badly.  In conclusion, T.V can be useful and helpful.  Yet, it could be harmful and violence, but by controling what our children are watching we can get all it’s benefits.

    It doesn’t matter what you watch, it’s all about how you were raised. If you were I a good home than that’s how you are going to act, but if you are from a broken home than you are going to have more hostility and be more violent
