Should children watch TV?
i think that if they wish to, they should be able to. Another view: It seems the first answer was either written by a child, a person who has no children, or h…as no interest in the well being of their children. NO - children should NOT be allowed to watch anything they want. While it's perfectly fine for children to watch some TV programs, there are some which children should not be allowed to watch. And, as parents, it's their responsibility to monitor what their children do watch, and not use the TV as a 'babysitter. Children are exposed to far too much violence and sex on TV, which can result in them becoming desensitized to those things, causing them to feel the need for further violence in what they watch for stimulation or entertainment. That's only one of the ways in which violence leads to violence. If kids watch extreme violence on TV not just while they are still in their formative years, but also when they are young teens, it can result in them experimenting with things they do watch. There have been many instances where a child saw a violent act on TV, then 'acted it out', resulting in their death, or the death of another child. Parents need to be responsible in what they allow their children watch on TV, and only let them watch age appropriate programs. TV's have parental controls so parents can easily control what their children watch, even if they are not present while the child is watching TV.
1 hour depending on what kind of show the child is watching.
Children between the ages of 3 and 5 are at a critical stage in brain development for the development of language and other cognitive skills. The extent to which heavy t…elevision viewing can influence the development of brain neural networks, and displaces time the child would spend in other activities and verbal interactions, influences early cognitive development. # The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that total television time be limited to no more than 1 to 2 hours per day. # They also recommend that programs watched should be geared to the age of the child, non-violent in nature and should reinforce language and social skills. # Parents should establish healthy television viewing habits in the pre-school years. Young children's television viewing should be limited to careful, thought-out, educationally-oriented programs. # To foster reading skills, give your young child exposure to books. Read to them often. Support your early reader with reading practice and limit television viewing. # Homework should be completed away from background television.
No, there are a lot of educational shows for children to watch on TV. However, you might want to consider limiting their time in front of the TV and encourage them to do somet…hing more active.
reality tv is not good for children because reality tv is not educational they say bad words and fight and children follow that
Yes. This needs to be monitored for time allowed and content exposed to by the parent or gardian.
There is no harm to your child from watching tv and playing video games. It is good to exercise but it could be harmful to the child to take them out of their comfort zone.

Children may have trouble telling the difference between reality and fantasy. Unless a child has proven themselves mature enough to make a clear distinction; they may be tempt…ed to imitate what they see. Once a child reaches a point of maturity where fantasy and reality have clear differences and the child shows an understanding of the consequences of their own actions; than (at the discretion of parents) it may be safe enough to include some violence in their viewing. Most adults have no trouble knowing that TV is not reality and TV is not something you should go around copying. The age at which that distinction becomes clear is different for everyone.
because they like to watch the real life show of the others and its should the real drama ,comedy and every single step it showed on the reality show show the kids the real em…otions
It has been said that unrealistic TV (i.e. cartoons that show violence etc.) are bad for children's health but realistic programmes like documentaries can be good. Of course i…t is a case of checking the content- some documentaries aren't suitable for children so be causious with regards to what they watch. Also be careful with the timings they watch TV for- TV should be watched in moderation- (i.e. don't let them watch hours of TV a day). A maximum of 2 and a half hours of TV a day would be plenty.
no its the parent job to control that, any way how would the law know how much they watch ! ?
Repeat studies have shown that media violence does not create violent children, but adolescents can be influenced by the things they watch. This is reflected in their speech, …dress and social behaviors. I would vote no. The children in my home are restricted in regards to sexual behavior and extreme profane language. Otherwise I have potty mouthed heathens. They are however allowed to watch blood and gore, and my four year old is zombie obsessed.
No. Children need things other than TV.
no they should not
