Television Watching : becoming a hazards for kids

Updated on February 8, 2014

Recently,an incident in the newspapers shocked the conscience of all parents.some children tried to imitate the stunts shown on TV and embraced their death.The tragic deaths of these children have given birth to a debate.Should such stunts be shown on TV? What are the hazards of TV-watching for kids ? And finally,does the 'Idiot-box' provide healthy and meaningful programmes for children?
Children are very sensitive .They are very tender.They are of impressionable nature and age.Whatever they read in books or watch on TV gets imprinted in their minds.They have natural flair for heroics.Adventures thrill them.Sensational programmes on TV fir their Imaginations. Programmes like 'Superman' and 'Spiderman' tempt to imitate the heroics and stunts performed by their heroes.Innocent kids are reckless.Little do they know that by imitating these stunts they are only playing with their lives.
Parents and teachers have a responsibility to guide them in this matter.Only healthy and light entertainment should be served to children.similarly the parents must not allow the children of tender age to watch horror films,stunts or such undesirable programmes on TV.Even the concerned authorities must censor such programmes.only healthy entertainment can keep the minds and morals of our children healthy.

      It's true we do need to be more careful to monitor what our children watch. All too often they believe that everything on TV is real.

      It's a shame that deaths have occurred because of what children have seen on TV. I've always thought that there was a lot of bad influence in many shows. I believe that parents should screen the programs their children watch instead of letting them flip channels with the remote.
