The invention of television has provided us with many benefits and advantages such as the easy access to entertainment, education and information. Like in all good things however, having to much of it can produce disadvantages that can offset whatever positive aspects it has managed to provide. Children’s use of the TV has to be regulated for length of time, time schedule and the quality of the shows being watched.
A child or an adult for that matter who indulges in excessive TV watching will ultimately have other aspects of his/her life affected such as school, work and relationships with other people. TV has produced the so-called “couch potatoes” or people who spend most of their time sitting idly in front of the TV, almost unable to do anything else but watch and eat. This in turn has resulted to various modern diseases associated with inactivity and unhealthy eating such as obesity and diabetes. Conditions affecting the eyesight as a result of watching too much television are also fairly common.
A person who is unable to do anything much beyond TV watching cannot live productive lives. This habit is especially harmful to children who are in the process of developing lifetime habits that will shape their future. People who have developed the habit of watching too much television are unable to exhibit the proper amount of concentration typically required to finish an assigned work. Unlimited access to television shows have also been blamed for certain negative behavior exhibited by young people as a direct consequence of being exposed to sensitive subjects such as sex, crime and morality without the proper guidance.
