In my opinion, television is more over 50% useful and 50% dangerous.

It totally depended on upon the individuals.

The most useful things that a television supports are: -information from all around the world.

- Live broadcasting.
- Education.
- History-sports.
- Entertainment.
- Business.
- Spreading some values and ethics.

And so on.

But some evil consequences from a television are majorly the -obscene picture promotion.

- Violence.
- Crime, and so on.

Mainly shows adverse effects on children and youth also cause physical and mental degradation.

In my opinion, television has a great impact on human beings either children, youth or old. The impact may be good one or bad. If the people sit in front of the television for a shorter period of time for relaxation is not a bad thing, sitting in front of it for a daily news instance or for a program through which we gain the knowledge is good and can be encouraged for a limited amount of time. But sitting in front of a TV set for hours together and spending only for the entertainment all the day is very bad thing and this should not be encouraged.

Children sitting in front of the TV set and watching the cartoon shows hours together may lead them to suffer from the eye problems in a small age. Women sitting in front of TV sets watching serials is not a correct thing. This effects the whole family, the children come and sit in front of the serial get distracted from their studies. The emotional TV serials has a very big impact on the Women this can lead to unnecessary frustration and quarreling among the family members and etc. So the television should be used only for a limited amount of time and purpose.

Firstly it is dangerous to whole human being as.

1) Small children watched their cartoons for long and long whole day and night because of that they loosing the other activity like ground playing etc and also getting eye problems in a small age.

2) Those bloody emotic serials which led to frustrated the women for fighting in the family.

3) Lastly, the people forget the all other activity like gym, sports, etc and being to feel like lazy to stay at the home and to watch the movie for whole time.

So, the conclusion I that tries to avoid to watch TV by small children's and teenagers, if you have to entertain urself then go to the theatre.

1) Watching TV for long hours is not good for our eyes. The harmful radiations emitted by it can damage our eyes. That's why nowadays, half of the populations are having specs.

2) Initially, people used to read books and imagine the various characters. But now, people like watching TV instead. Television has killed their imaginative thinking.

3) Some reality shows the aggressive and abusive behavior of contestants. This affects the mentally of today's youth.

4) Watching the never-ending serials by ladies is actually mere wastage of time. They should actually consume this time in doing physical activities and in interacting with the people.

5) Children have become addicted to cartoons and they remain sitting before television for hours which has actually made them obese. They don't go for outdoor games and it has killed their physical activity.

1) Channels like discovery, NatGeo tell us about the amazing discoveries happening around the world.

2) News channels provide us with the knowledge of world happenings.

3) TV advertisements help us to know about various products and markets.

4) Some educational shows like KBC increase our general knowledge.

5) Some music and dance reality shows help the general public to be part of it and show cast their talent.

6) Some shows like Savdhan India tells us about the general cases that occur in our day to day life and how they should be dealt with.

7) Small children can't read the book. The cartoons are very famous among them and they like the weird figure of various cartoon characters. Watching cartoons can actually help them in learning a language and following a conversation.

Speaking on the topic I think:

TV is an invention, which mankind can't take back, today, we even go through similar platforms via internet in our mobiles and PCs. It is a great instrument of recreation and information, much safer for children as compared to online. The availability of spectrum of programs and knowledge makes it a valuable product.

What is really matter of disturbance in TV usage is the problems created on health and the mental development. The simple bizarre programmes like never ending serials with no story line and the youth reality shows which only keep you floating in the world of fantasy and unreal thoughts.

I think what needs to be reviewed more is the content that comes on TV and as far as the time wastage and the health goes that is one's personal and family guided responsibility.

I would like to speak about.

Effect of television youth.

According to me television is not affecting the youth its depend on our mentality. We learn from the show. What is bad and good. If we are watching movies then its depend on us which types of movies we are seeing. Television has both positive and negative effects on youth but I can't say that it has only positive and negative effects. Nowadays television is a part of our daily lives.

We have heard some saying that television is an idiot box to remove that and install a beautiful book shelf. Then what we have to do for our entertainment time reading books, no.

We want some entertainment. We have to laugh, giggle, enjoy the life.

So, we must see educative and informative program to arouse the interest of the youth and encourage them. Parents should guide them and give proper knowledge of television, how to use.

First, parents should see good programmes and not seeing bad serials like robberies, cheating.

Then children follow the parents and act according to.

As like a coin, TV also has both positive and negative tendency. If we use TV in a proper way it is like a guider; as we have got some good channels such as discovery which talks about the amazing discoveries.

Some news channels give us news about the going on around us and the world. It also effects on education, culture, societies and business. But if we misuse it is the greatest enemy. It is commonly used as a simple means of recreation, people moreover children use to sit near of it interestingly for a longer period of time. It is very harmful and may cause diseases such as mental disorders, moreover hearing and sight problems.

So, at last I would like to say that TVs are in our control and we have to decide how to handle it. If we use it a right manner it will result soon.

There are different news channel from which we can know about that what is happening around the world and also we can analyze our knowledge.

This (news channel) is the most useful part of the T.V. But there is some negative part also. We should not give our all attention to the T.V. It can affect our eyes. We should give the specific time for watching the T.V. for the children.

Hey friends,

I think in today's world we are addicted towards television but to take a stand whether the television is creating a negative or positive impact on the youth it totally depends on how we use the television.

If a person watches news then he is updating his current affairs and can also enlarge his knowledge by watching the channel which adds value to his thought process then at that time television is creating a positive impact on that person.

On the other hand if he/she is watching the program or anything which did not suit his or her age at that time the television is creating a negative impact on that person.

Hence its parents who should mould the child so that the television should create a positive impact on their child's life.

By TV we can gain so much of knowledge about updates and present society position. But every thing has pros and cons likewise in TV also we have some pros that is it is available to every one and there we can see foreign channels youth can get knowledge about abroad countries.

Even though we have latest technology using laptops or mobile TV but it is not able to access village people. Cons of the TV is not flexible and it is some what difficult to carry to another place. Meanwhile electronic companies made TV as small one now it is available to all poor people and it is the best of all.

Hi friends,

According to my view, Television programs need to be less violent and more family oriented. Television, when properly used is a strong tool in communicating the world. Millions of Americans watch TV every day. Television programs need to be less violent and more family oriented because today's youth is too easily influenced, violence among teens has increased over the years, and families need to have something they would all enjoy.

With today's youth having no positive role models, they are forced to look towards violent, and abusive characters on television. Kids go through their teen years looking for identities, looking for ways to act, but by watching TV we seem to get the idea that violence will solve everything and teens will go into society with those thoughts engraved in their minds.

Secondly studies show that teen related crimes have increased greatly over the past couple years. Kids today feel more confident with committing crimes and getting away with out consequences.

Also television producers now are more interested in getting high ratings. Producers should use their power in educating positively. Families are pulled apart by every day chores, whether it is school, work, or social lives. Families need a time to sit down and enjoy each other's company.

In conclusion, the problem facing the world is the lack and absence of concern toward what today's generation will become tomorrow.

Hi friends,

My point is the TV can be the most effective tool of learning. But the youths cannot benefit much from the television if they kept on watching the movies and movies related programmes. They have to divide their time in watching several programmes telecast by the TV channels. The most beneficial are the news channels with discussions on important subject which most of the students do not watch at all.

They have the quiz programmes to increase their general knowledge. Some channels are telecasting programmes meant entirely for the students. The students can also make use of certain programmes like Toppers relayed by some TV channels on a nominal payment. There are games and programmes even for the young kids for learning by subscribing to these programmes.

The TV offers everything but it is for the user to take a decision how much he or she wants to get benefit from it.

Hi friends,

According to my view, most shows shown on the television nowadays involve bright color. According to the media, the brighter the picture, the better it is. But doctors feel the contrary. Almost all the latest movies and cartoons shown on television use a variety of special effects. Most of these involve explosions and gun fights (in the case of movies) and flashes of lightning and bursts of color at times of animated violence (in the case of cartoons).

These sudden and intermittent flashes of light are capable of causing serious damage to the eye and can cause temporary blindness and migraine if a person watches television excessively. This was the case with the recent popular Japanese cartoon show, Pokemon, where certain animals with special powers emitted balls of lightning or fire when prompted; many children suffered from headaches as a result of watching the show and complaints are still being issued against the show for the same reason.

Hi friends,

According to my point, for years many have disputed over whether or not violent acts on television influence children. Television violence without a doubt effects children. When children are constantly viewing violence on almost every channel they watch it makes it hard to argue that there are no damaging effects.

The reason is because children have not yet matured enough to fully distinguish between what is of the real world and what is of the television world. Also, children adapt to what they see around them, and if violence is what is all around them they will adapt to that children can start to believe that violence is admissible in our society, when really, our society is trying exterminate the violence that makes its presence known in our country.

According to my view, Television today has a lot of positive effects and influences on our society and our Indian culture. Television gives us helpful information, various forms of education and entertainment which are all a part of the positive effects that television has on our society. On a day to day basis, television keeps us informed with plenty of helpful information.

The television in today's society has become one of our most basic resources of information. We are informed through the television of the latest news, weather, and information which are important in our daily lives. Through television we can be warned about almost anything from a hurricane approaching to the fact that the stock market is falling. Television is a great way of educating the people throughout society with important issues that affect our daily lives. Be it social, political, economical or medical.

There is always something new to be told, and television is the quickest way to be informed. The television takes the time to do the research that most Americans don't do. Through various news programs and documentaries the television keeps us educated.

According to me, recent studies from all around the world have proved that Television has an effect on people as individuals and as a whole. No one can say and believe that television has no effects on society. The most obvious is the effects that television has on the brain. It interferes with the development of intelligence, thinking skill and imagination. TV has become a major part of every Indonesian home. Many other countries are just the same.

Television has various negative effects on our society today. Many People like to argue that television is horrible and that it ruins kids minds.

Television for Youth, boon or bane as the discussion has been going quiet interesting. I would like to add that youth are attracted by media more. The age factor is the weakness that abides them in crazily enacting the things that happen around. Even then, there are things in them that are constructive and the ones that are destructive.

Because Television is a pool of telecast of entertainment, news, sports etc. There should be some one to guide & correct youth i.e. the teenagers so that they utilize them in a right way. They must not be restricted neither severely penalized but made aware of the issues & understand the sensitivity of certain issues & serious repercussions of them.

Also television has had a major impact on the youth. In terms of violence, health and sex related issues. Over the past two decades, hundreds of studies have examined how violent programming on TV affects children and young people. While a direct "cause and effect" link is difficult to establish, there is a growing consensus that some people may be vulnerable to violent images and messages. Also a check needs to be kept on kids who behave aggressively after watching a particular show.

Since, these days people are so much into television the biggest concern is that they sit in front of the TV set for hours thus most of their precious time is spent sitting and munching without doing any physical activity because of which kids suffer from various health problems at a very young age. Kids today are bombarded with sexual messages and images in all media"television, magazines, advertisements, music, movies and the Internet. Parents are often concerned about whether these messages are healthy. While television can be a powerful tool for educating young people about the responsibilities and risks of sexual behaviour, such issues are seldom mentioned or dealt with in a meaningful way in programmes containing sexual content.

Thus, as I mentioned earlier television has both negative as well as positive effects. Television offers lots of benefits such as, sharing cultural experience with others, shared viewing gives a family some time together, parents can use television as a catalyst for reading by making them watch a particular show and then bringing books related to the same, improving the general knowledge, also helps in improving the social and communication skills of the kid.

This problem is majorly seen in cases where the mother and the father are both working. Since the mother has to maintain a balance between her professional as well as personal life thus sometimes to finish off her work she finds it making the kid sit in front of the television as the best option available. Some parents will switch on the TV and feed the children.

The parents will be happy as the little one opens his mouth like a gold fish and swallows the food while watching TV. The parent is not realizing that she herself is developing in the child the habit of watching TV while eating food. Now a day's some children watch TV even while doing home work. This practice must be dissuaded from the beginning. All the children's programmes and cartoon channels are intermixed with advertisements. These advertisements have a definite influence on tender minds.

Fast food snacks filled with Masala and Aginomotto are harmful to health. How much impact TV has on children depends on many factors: how much they watch, their age and personality, whether they watch alone or with adults, and whether their parents talk with them about what they see on TV.

Hello everyone,

I feel, television is a source of entertainment, acknowledgement and awareness. All types of channels are been telecaster. It surely depends on the respective person watching television that how he takes whatever is being shown.

Now a days, youths are so much attracted to televisions that they ignore many works that are supposed to be finished on a specific time. So I feel television has both good or bad effects its only depend on the person watching it.

Hi friends 'according to me it depends upon humans prescription that what he want to do he wanted to make a use of TV or misuse. It totally depends upon human mind tendency.

As of my knowledge few channels are showing unwanted shows at midnight. This is the main drawbacks people to fell down the TV shows so few peoples are waiting for the particular time of show.

And moreover other kind of peoples fully spend it time on the TV shows that was totally waste of time. So kindly guys please utilize your time to watch good interesting shows and be make a limit time.

Every human invention has a good part and bad so as TV. When there were news papers the communication speed was low but after Telegraphs and TV's the communication has become very fast. Up to this point TV was playing a good boy character but when the same thing is used for entertainment people were fascinated by audio and video entertainment. The purpose and the aim of the TV was left back.

In now a days even through news channels play major role in spreading news but most of time the news published were not much knowledgeable. They often makes us feel stressed. There are other effective ways to get updated news such as different android applications and also news papers instead of TV.

Television is a major source of entertainment, channels like discovery, national geographic, history etc. provides knowledge to the youth whereas some other channels in which various reality shows exposes violence, aggression, vulgarity, crime and many more things which youth founds to be interesting reflects a negative impact on them.

So, I think parents should be aware of their children's activities and they should teach their children's to not watching such types of channels. And also helps them to understand that only watch those channels which gives you some knowledge.

Hello,

I feel TV is viewed mainly as a source of entertainment than information gathering box.

TV is not the only way to gather information about current news. You can also read newspaper which is more advantageous than watching TV. It improves your English and reading skills, In fact watching TV for long time affects your eyes and you become idle.

Always you won't switch on the TV just to see news or something informative. If any reality show attracts you while changing the channel then you will come back and see that only you won't go in search of news channel.

More over television serials are becoming part of life of many home makers because of which their attention towards their daily family routine is reducing. They are wasting lot of their valuable times by sitting in front of that IDIOT BOX!

So I conclude saying that Television has more negative impact that positive.

If one will watch news channels then he or she can learn new things and can update himself or herself, if watch other channels like discovery, animal planets and all from that also he or she can enhance his or her knowledge level, however if someone likes to watch serial and movies then he or she will get addicted to that which is not good at all because it will create disturbances in student life.

Hi friends,

In today's time, television has become a very important part of our lives. It can be used both as a boon or a bane.

It can be boon if it is used properly such as one can watch channels like discovery, national geographic, animal planet and history to increase one's knowledge but is bane when one start watching serials all the time.

It has a bad effect on our minds one can watch one or two serials just for entertainment but watching many is disgusting. It blocks the mind of youth and distracts them from their studies.

Watching television is good only when it is in its limits. It has adverse effects on children and adults as well when it exceed its limits.

In conclusion we should use television as boon instead of using it as bane.

Hello friends,

I totally agree to all of you. In my opinion watching television both are bless and curse for us it only depends on our mind what we prefer to see. I think watching music and films does not create much destruction to adults who also now a days used to sit with child.

Yes they must guide the children!But the person who used to look serials are the stupid among all because they know that their mind were under control of that serial, they can't concentrate on their works whenever they are not able to look that serial.

Specially housewife's the women usually talks about that serial with her neighbor. But l am not against television yes it is a good time passer for them they should forget about the serial after finished.

Also it is a good medium for adults because they are the most stage in danger zone so to be save from negative side, to understand some negative sighs they should know all these things which they can know from shows like India.

Normally peoples used to keep their child far from rape cases in fact they should teach their child. Who knows they may also suffer by all these things someday.

According to my opinion this is the age of science and we are too much addicted from television. I think TV plays very important roll to develop our personality.

By this scientific invention we can learn a lot of positive aspects like getting news throughout the world, current affairs, discussion on social issues, news about internal and external affairs, relation between nations, political feedback and work of our government so that I will be able to assess the work of our leader.

TV is also important for knowing about what good or bad going in the world these days and how can we manage ourselves in that conditions for example in a govt advertisement they teach how to protect our child from malnutrition. This type of adds are prove very needful for awareness of people.

So in my point of view TV is need of youth generation for become more and more active.

Hello everybody,

As we all know television has some advantages and disadvantages whenever children set free they option whether to play or watch television but it is not good to see it every time as it is a good source to do time pass but for that we can read books or play any outdoor game. I would like to give more preference to playing rather than watching television, it is sufficient for 2 hours a day but not a full day.

It is not necessary that every child watch news or any general channel they always go to cartoons and songs from which sometime we get a little awareness. Yeah, but it gives us good ideas to make a sad person happy although, that seeing it all time causes eye stain and avoiding it gives us good health. So avoid it as much you can and play outdoor games as much as you can but do not skip study ever!

Getting sufficient entertainment through television is enough. But we spend more time automatically by watching so many shows, serials, movies. There is no mistake to get entertain always, but watching TV continuously make a person more dull and inactive. So that one cannot concentrate in their work and cannot achieve success.

Success is more important for youth. So youth minds should be more active and work effectively everyday. Definitely watching Television distract the minds of youth. So TV kills the valuable time of youth.

Television has been found to be amongest one of the greatest discoveries of all times for the obvious reason. One could use it for any purpose depending on the choice of the individual, be it for what's happening around the globe to tv soaps to music, just at the press of a button. !

But who knew it would turn out to be the topic of debate depending upon the manner it is being used and the shows being aired on it.

A common saying heard by us is" every coin has two sides". Similarly, tv has both its adverse and advantageous effects. It is up to us that what we use it for.

No doubt the entertainment shows aired are full of cheap comedy, then there are shows which show how to date like dare to date, on the other hand there are shows test the future of your relation like emotional Atyachaar and Axe your ex. With these kind of shows going on air, children and teenagers are bound to get influenced. Undoubtedly this influence is not a positive one. !

A new trend of shows aired include the reality shows where many teenagers will to go just for the sake of publicity, they find it cool enough to come and be a part of such a show. A great example of such a show is Big boss which made many headlines due to the cheap content of the show, which was done to increase the TRP.

No doubt, we have great channels like discovery and national geographic which help to increase the learning process of individuals manifold. Then we have shows like kbc which help people to scratch their brains to find answers to questions.

My stance is that tv promotes both good education and entertainment. It is up to the individual what he/she wants to derive from it. !

The dangerous things are,

The children are addicted to more cartoon channels, and the consequences are obesity, eye power, health hazards, etc. Thus our children has to be limited on watching TV and they have to be concentrated more on outdoor games. It kills our physical ability, we'll become lazy.
