The video has come up with variety of programs and the growth vastness of the tv set in the daily life of the people has given the entertainment world a contrastive name. It has been observed in many countries like the linked S tates the children are devoting maximum of about thirty hours inhabiting television per week. This has given rise to a hobby or a habit of watching television (Kelemen, 2002).In many countries the children like to watch television, forgoing their studies and this had created sensory faculty within the parents and the teachers. The most important issue regarding this matter is that the children are getting wrong schooling in some particular cases from the different programs of the television. There are many interesting programs apart from the cartoon specifys which attract the children. The study is each(prenominal) about the awareness that had been generated by different research outcomes conducted by different organizations. The study discusses many important issues and analyses both the positive and damaging sides of the issues (Yapp, 2014).TV, young children and aggressionIt is observed all over the world that the children are adversely prompted by the blood-red programs which they view in the television. Eastman (2004) had said that by the date when the American children become adult up to leave the high school they would have viewed thousands of murders and other violent activities in the television. On the other hand Rowell Huesmann et al (2003) have said that at that place is a tendency in the infants to imitate the activities they observe from the television and hence the violent programs could have much partake on the minds of the children and could cause severe accidents in their lives (Huesmann Moise-Titus, 2003).Murray (2005) have pointed out that in many cases it has been observed that children having maximum exposure to violent programs get their sensitivity towards violence and this turn increases their tolerance of violence in the society. On the other some children are found to be getting more sensitive towards the violence and that might affect their physical and mental strength. It is not always good for the infants to watch tel evision as they might be affected by the colors, hues, saturation and exposure level of the television portray. The sound set up might also affect the hearing aspect or the mental ontogeny of the infants as initial stages (Murray, 2012).Is TV dumping down our young? accord to Anderson and Pempeck in that respect is a close relationship between the development of language and watching TV. The children infra 2 years who watch television for a long time do not develop their language and vocabulary. The children start to speak less and they follow only gestures. The children below 2 years who watch educational programs like benne Street and Dora the Explorer face the similar problems in the language development. But the children over 2 years while watching these programs in particular designed for the development of language get a bankrupt learning opportunity and they develop the language truehearteder (Gliebe, 2011).The parents co-viewing with their kids has shown to be near as the parents could master the programs accordingly and might help their children in understanding the meaning of the programs they watch. The children are sometimes found to be more inclined towards the face to face confabulation and learn to develop language from this type of conversation. The parents could control the time their children are devoting towards watching the television. They could even ban or eliminate many programs from being watched by their children if they find some anti social or unethical in the programs.The role of TV in the obesity epidemicThe children who are watching television for a longer period are found to be affected by the increase issue of obesity as they forgo their physical activities and sit idle at a place and watch television. The children get less time for any extra curriculum activities and due to that they are growing some problems in their physical growth.The habit of having fast food or snacks are being promoted by the television ads whi ch are growing the habit of consuming fast food and snacks at an increasing rate which is affecting the health of the children to great extent. The children are getting much inclined towards the fast food and the ready to take a shit foods as they are being advertised very skillfully to attract the children (Boulos, Vikre, Oppenheimer, Chang, Kanarek, 2012).On the other hand television programs are also promoting some beneficial programs which are helping in the development of many good habits and learning. The television is also promoting various programs from where the children could learn about the culture of their countries or about different animals etc. There are some programs which are promoting the habits of practicing regular exercise in the daily regime of the children and the children are trying to follow them.Is TV helping the young to a more positive view of the world?According to Moeller (1996) the television programs are helping to understand the world around us by and by dint of different specific channels. The television can have positive impacts on the minds of the children depending on the perception that the people are growing within them. nearlytimes it is underwriten that people both children and adults like to believe that whatever is shown in the television is normal and real without judging the truth. This might have positive or negative work depending on the individual conception development (Moeller, 1996).Some programs might show the children the way they want to prove the world around us and could have negative impact on the minds of the children. On the other hand there are certain programs which are useful to the children to collect many academic information or data which they could skillfully use in their studies and could increase their general knowledge (Wiseman, 2012).There are certain worrying issues where the children get wrong ideas about the cultures or the society of many places from the television. The children with good intelligence would take the positive views but the children with poor intelligence would not be able to get the positive views without the focusing of their parents or teachers.TV linked to better language and literacy?Many research work have proved that watching television is helping in the development of language and literacy in the children. The children of two years get to develop their language competency from watching television. Many children have been found to have grown better vocabulary by watching television. The children get to learn many things from television. There are many well designed education oriented programs like Se homogeneous Street which provides good communication and language skills to be developed in the children (Close, 2004).Not all the learning programs are designed to develop language skills in the children. It is the responsibility of the guardians to supervise the programs and allow the children accordingly to watch the programs which are suited for their children. The adult co-viewers are responsible to grow and develop the language competencies within the children through their active participation. The conversation between the adult co-viewer and the children below two years is vital in developing the language within them. The parents or guardians have to caper an active role in the development of language and literacy through watching television (Linebarger, 2006).ConclusionThe above discussion shows for and against the reduction of the television viewing by the children below two years and also for the children who are sensitive to many issues. The parents or the guardians have to be more conscious about the controlling of the time dedicated to the television viewing by the children. The Government should take steps either to ban some violent or anti social programs or to make the schedule of the programs as per the prime time or the general time for watching television.The study shows the positive and negativ e impacts of the television on the minds and developments of the children below and over two years. The study describes the various issue which are related with the viewing of the television. observation TV is also hampering the physical development of the children and even increasing the rate of obesity in the children. The study throws lights on various findings from the research conducted by many researchers.The research should be able to analyze both the positive and negative impacts of watching television. More research is needed to provide more data and information regarding how much positive or negative it is to watch television for the children. The society should try to instigate the positive impacts of watching television rather than the negative impacts. The society should be well aware of the adverse do which could affect the children from initial stage.ReferencesBoulos, R., Vikre, E. K., Oppenheimer, S., Chang, H., Kanarek, R. B. (2012).

Positive effects include, while negative effects includes violence, behave aggressively and their emotional aspects affected.The Effects of TelevisionPositive EffectsNegative EffectsViolenceBehave aggressivelyEmotional Aspects affectedWatching television has positive effects (which include produce learning skills and recognize emotions) and negative effects (includes violence, behave aggressively and lead to emotional problems) among childrenIntroductionTechnology makes our life easy and it becomes a part of our lives everywhere, anywhere. onward the growth of the technology being rampant, there is a first study source of innovation in technology and that is the television. Television sets become a major industry in the world. Almost all the people in the world, in their households have television sets, and every day, more and more people tend to view on television.By touching its button and by searching different channels, it gives us benefits and solutions to our challenges in the modern-faced world. This includes receiving reports from local and world events, to inspire young minds by exploring geography and history, watch a fantasy, and to entertain us. Television also tends to escape from the reality, which gives us a temporary relief from our problems in life or when we feel depressed. collect to the growing industry of television, television networks always wants to know their audience perspective on what kind of program they want to watch. Audiences have a big impact in the television industry without them, no image on the screen. Most probably, adults are the one who watch, but as the time goes by, children also considered a part of their audience so that television networks consider the programs they watch.Children in the 21st century are now exposed in the television screens and we cannot prevent that. They are interact by the researchers and policy makers as a special audience due they are in process to learn things from the screen (Potter, 2008). Also, they are not except mature to select a show appropriate to them. So that, as more and more children tempt to watch, the more they see something wrong or something castigate depending on the content of the program they watch. As illustration, if a child sees violence, the more violent he become and when he see educational and inspiring, it teaches him to learn novel things. According to Hollenbeck Slaby, 1979, children starts to spend television at the age of 6 months, as they grow up, it increases number of hours they spend on television until it reaches by up to vi and a half hours every day. Because of this, we think that it leads to positi ve and negative effects of the behavior of children as they grow up. According to psychiatrist Dr. Victor Cline in his tongue in Norfolk, unused Virginia, that all the pictures they see in television, it can clearly affects the self-image then, later behavior of young people. He also added that mental diet is the same as nutritional diet. Once a child sees on a television, it will put what they see it in their mind, later it will take its changes on their behavior once they grow up. He consider the childrens minds into a bank-whatever we put on it, we will get it back 10 years or more with an interest (Cline, 1989)In general, watching television may lead to the positive and negative effects on the behavioral and emotional discourse of the children. Some positive effects are it enhances learning skills and recognize emotions and the negative effects are it leads to violence, behave aggressively and lastly, it leads to emotional problems.Watching television has positive effects (whi ch include enhance learning skills and recognize emotions) and negative effects (includes violence, behave aggressively and lead to emotional problems) among childrenDiscussionPositive Effects of TelevisionTelevision has a great benefit among children as they get easily aware and connect about the physical happenings in their modern-faced society (Gunter and McAleer, 1997 xii-xiii).They also stated that television is not one-eyed monster who waits to spread evil over the young members of the household. This is an implication that when a child watches a significant program that is educational, informative, and values-promoted shows will increase their intellectual growth. Researchers explain this, through watching preschoolers Sesame Street regularly, it easily recognize their emotions and to cope harm when the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York by featuring a story about grease fire in Hoopers Stone which required the help of the brave firefighters (Wilson, 2008).Second positive ef fect of television among children is that they acquire basic languages on it. Studies shows that if they watch educational programs, their tendency is to learn basic shapes, numbers, letters, etc. if their parents acceptd them (Lemish and Rice, 1986). However, Naigles and Mayeux (2001) found that in certain deal children learn words and their meanings from educational programs that are specifically design for them (age, content etc.). Further, we must say that we select programs that are capable to their age and they must guide them in order for them to learn their language acquisition. Although still, there is no significant evidence that suggests television as part of their everyday lives to learn new things in life.Negative Effects of TelevisionViolence is one of the primarily negative effects of television among children. Television violence had been increasing for the past years. In the studies, it shows that an middling of 32 acts per hour, a child may see on the screen (Ge rbner). Because of the number of violent acts a child may see, there is a publication of the mental problem called copycat phenomenon. impersonator Phenomenon defines as imitating or copying the act or behavior of a person from a particular show (Sparks, 2013). An example of this is if a child sees on television, a person who acts to be violent there is a porta to imitate its action, except, once it continues to imitate until he/she grows up, it results as to be his/her personality. Many people have experience this even adults because it stirs up their emotions easily and somehow, they relate on that gibe they watch. Further to that, it results in increasing number of crime and harm things so that it is very alarming when a child happen to it. Violent television teaches children step-by-step on how to commit mistakes and violent acts easily (Cline, 1989, 2B.).Watching violence can lead to behaving aggressively. Does it really lead to behave aggressively among children? It is tru e that it may lead to behave them aggressively through the following factors if a character in a particular scene performs violent acts then that character receives a reward for their actions, and there is a possibility of increasing aggression to children especially on boys and not on girls. And this theory he proposed is the social learning theory (Bandura, 1973). To illustrate, if a child sees a scene in a screen which has violent acts, then later the character receives reward on it, there is a chance of imitating or again Copycat Phenomenon. But, if the character did not receive rewards from it but receive punishment, there is a small chance of that child will refrain to do that act. But, in his further studies, it shows that this effect is not clearly depending on kind of program they watch it is regardless of the kind of program they watch. Therefore, whatever kind of program they watch still, there is a risk of their behavior due to prolonged expose to television and violence .Once it changes their attitudes, it will clearly affect all their emotional aspects. Children emotions lead to anxiety, fear, trauma and even depression (Wilson, 2008). First, there is a possibility of anxiety to them. Second, their fear increases. There is a study that many children have experiences short-term reactions to television. When they watch a scary movie, (example is Monster House), they get react easily and probably they frightened. So that, after they watch it, they feel devastated and therefore, it results to trauma. It will also intensify these effects if they watch a particular news footage that contains tragedy or violence. As a result, children are full of fears to face the real-world. It will hard for them to express themselves and they might see the real-world as a difficult, more complicated and may a victim or real violence. It is normal, but, their emotional capacity maybe more difficult to cope.Watching television has positive effects (which include enhance learning skills and recognize emotions) and negative effects (includes violence, behave aggressively and lead to emotional problems) among childrenConclusionReferencesBooksPotter, W.
