i think TV is good for children. It brings them exposure to the world around them. It also helps them learn about other cultures. There are also educational channels that teach young children. It is also entertainment for children while they are also learning.

Post  austin on Tue Feb 22, 2011 7:51 am

yes. The reason why is it loses all the stuff we have learned in school. Also it just corrupts our mind. next it just hurts our eyes. Last most of it is commercials are inappropriate.

TV is only bad for young people if they make it bad. There are many shows that can have a bad influence on younger people, but there is also educational things on the TV. Most people don't like educational programs, I am one of those people. I mean its all how you want to raise your kids. You are the adult so, be in control of your kids if you don't like the shows they watch then don't allow them to watch them.

The TV is beast! With out TV we wouldn't be informed about the world. If you don't watch TV you should just live under a rock. there is also information on the TV like survival shows. that is why TV is good for us young folk.

T.V.

Post  Bradley on Tue Feb 22, 2011 7:53 am

T.v. is not bad for young people. Little kids can learn things from the T.V. show. It also gets the news out so that people can be more safe. T.V. can take control of peoples life's though. T.V. is good in moderation.

TV is bad

I think TV is bad for you because it can cause bad eye sight. Also you are not getting any exorcise and becoming addicted to sit in the house. TV can show both good & bad conflicts. Also we are meant to learn stuff in school through our life.

Post  Elizabet on Tue Feb 22, 2011 7:57 am

Not all t.v. on there is bad for young people today. You have the news that can teach you about the problems in the world and give you knowledge about our society. There are informative channels like the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet which can give you more knowledge about animals and other creatures. On the other hand there are channels like MTV and Comedy Central which can corrupt our minds but are still watched because they are entertaining and somethings teens can actually relate to. So not all t.v. is bad just the t.v. that teens watch : )

TV in general is not bad for young people. Some programs on the TV are actually good for younger viewers and educate them. TV is also a fun way to spend time with family and just have fun in general. It can also be important, like the news and forecasts. Yes there are some programs that aren't the best for younger viewers to watch but, the TV in general shouldn't be given the stereotype as bad.

tv is bad

Post  reedm on Tue Feb 22, 2011 7:58 am

TV is not good for children. TV distracts children from their studies. TV also doesn't use your brain, it is something that has no benefit educationally what so ever. TV also much of TV today is about drug and sex, this is not something that young children should be exposed to. TV also discourages good health, because while you watch TV from your couch you are just becoming fatter.

I think TV can be good and bad for children. If you monitor what your children watch it can be informational and educational. They can learn about the world around them in good kid friendly shows. If you don't monitor your kids and what they watch. It could expose them to fighting, and cursing that your child does not need to be using. Many children today are not monitored and most of the kids exhibit this bad behavior.

TV hinders can hinder young people thought process but it can also benefit it. Depending on what they watch, TV can benefit them in a good way, educational wise. TV can also have a bad influence on a young mind due to what TV publishes but it is also up to the parents to control what they want their child to watch and what they don't want them to watch.

I believe it depends on the TV program that young people watch in regards to if it's bad or not. If young people are watching an educational program then they're learning something. However if they're just watching cartoon network, MTV, VH1, BET, or Nickelodeon then yes TV is bad for then because they aren't watching anything substantial. TV is a way for people to sit on their couches for hours on end and not get up and go and do something active that will help their lives. But it is a great way to calm down and unwind from a long day.

TV

Post  Erik B on Tue Feb 22, 2011 8:01 am

I believe that TV is not bad for young people. TV opens up young peoples eyes to the outside world. It helps them learn more about things outside of their normal environment. TV can also promote the visual systems of young people and promote thinking as well. Overall TV is very beneficial for young people.

T.V. Debate

Post  emilya on Tue Feb 22, 2011 8:01 am

T.V. at an extent, is disabling young children to have a creative mind. Most of the shows that children watch have violence and encourage hitting or fighting with people. It also opens up cursing and other inappropriate things children should not be learning at that age. Most children without a T.V. go outside and use their own imagination entertaining themselves and getting exercise all at the same time. Unlike the children who don't have a T.V. they lay around on the couch all day and become lazy and not motivated to do anything else. Not all T.V. is bad for children as long as they watch the right things like animal planet, history channel or any other educational channels.

T.V is not bad for young people because when your young you learned certain things from t.v. It really depends on what young people watch. There are many television programs that kids can watch to better them self. Programs that teach you about life and teach you what to do in life situations.

tv is not bad for young people. its what they watch and the amount of tv they watch. if you sit on your butt for more than 2 hours at a time watching stupid mtv shows then yes that is bad. but to watch an hour r so of a game show or food network that i okay.

When your a youngin you're most easily influenced, and having a tv around probably isn't a good thing. Tv can either have a good influence or a bad one depending on which of the channels the kid is exposed to. Some tv channels can give useful information and teach kids at an early age things like math,reading and other languages. But it can also expose kids to the world too young when they're not ready for it.

I agree that tv is bad. the only good thing about it might be watching the news for things such as weather (hurricanes, tornadoes, storms). of course movies are always fun to watch but they aren't very helpful to life. I personally hardly ever watch tv, and it is a waste of time unless it's something like exercise tv where you'd actually be doing something useful. tv encourages laziness and boredom, and commercials are built to manipulate the mind to consume everything and anything. it desensitizes the mind. plus you could always be doing something more productive or helpful. anything with screens is ultimately wasteful, no matter how much you can do with it or keep in touch with people.
