As we all know that everything that we come across in our daily life has both positive as well as negative sides. So frankly speaking on this topic I would like to tell that its all upon the children or their parents, how they are taking the positive part of the television serials or movies etc. It's all about the self-perception view regarding the effects of television. So youth as well as their parents must mutually understand this fact and must utilize this in a positive scene.

As every coin has 2 sides, similarly every technology has a good and bad effect. It depends on how we choose to either benefit our-self or harm. In my opinion, TV has many positive sides. It brings awareness to the public and a good medium of communication to mass. Except for news there are various reality shows, talent hunts which provide exposure to the talent present in the nation. So I find it good.

Peoples are watching different shows because of that they behave like the character of that show or movie, recently one news comes after watching crime petrol show on sony channel crime rate is increased because their more aware about police investigation they avoid CCTV camera, mobile during the crime.

Hi, I am Srikanth Satya.

Today, Technology is available to all. We can make use of it for both good and bad purposes. But earlier TV's were widely used. In my opinion, Both good and bad on TV that we see is depend on us. Most of the youth were badly influenced by TVs. But I don't think it only affected badly on youth. TV provides more information like news, technology, science and many education-related aspects which are very useful for youth. Some channels make to think us more widely in science related aspects as well as technology. TVs provide entertainment by which we can feel relaxed. And also by English channels and movies provided in TVs youth can't take better communication skills. And hence TVs shows both good and bad affects on youth.

Hi, friends.

Television is one of the most important communication devices nowadays because in every family TV has become an important part like a fiend, it has both positive and negative effects on the people but it is totally depending upon the viewers.

Because by watching TV an individual can get more current information in the society regarding politics, business news, government related issues, healthcare, sports, educational and so many things what ever things happened across the world, if we take some programmes conducting career counseling for students, business economics for employs, health care for patients, not only these but so many good things we can attain.

Some international tv channels like CNN, Discovery science becomes most trusted channels because the information presents through those channels are very effective and some channels are involved in the technical aspects and business (BIZ NEWS) aspects so every programme will have its own importance, the updated information is very use full for gaining the knowledge and at the same time for advertisement it is the primary source so TV is most acceptable communication device and also TV is an entertainment for all generation.

Music, games, movies, programs, serials, etc. But if we addict to those programs, our time will be wasted and according to W. H. O continuation of watching tv more than two hours will effect the nervous system and the ability of thinking may gradually decrease, so the lack of good knowledge on watching tv is now becoming a serious issue.

So as per my opinion learn only good things from tv and don't addict to that and don't waste your valuable time, because time is most precious in the life.

Thank you.

Hello, friends, nowadays television plays a vital role in our day to day life. Everything has some pros and cons it depends on mainly how efficiently we people using those things. Of course, whatever technology grows up but still now we are using TV in our home. Watching tv gives us a lot of information about sports, economics, current affairs., don't what's happening in all around the world even the illiterate can know by watching images nd live programs by hearing. So it gives us some relaxation nd knowledge and etc. But at the same time, it has som disadvantages like crimes nd some programs on foreign channels which affect the younger generation very badly and leads to the dangerous situation sometimes. Mainly watching TV makes us so many discomforts in our health and makes us coachpotatoes. So my conclusion is about this topic is it is good when we use it in a proper way otherwise it is bad only.

Television can be a Pandora box and idiot box both depending upon the choice of our programs and duration for which we get to stick to TV.

Some positive aspects of watching TV is as follows.

Getting live sports and events.

Programs for farmers.

Educational news about every field like history, arts, science and tech, art of living, yoga etc.

Getting the news of events of our nearby places, country, and the world.

Religious programs.

There is also a theory "Social Surrogacy Hypothesis" which says that persons suffering from loneliness and social isolation can use television and maintain a parasocial relationship with characters from the program which he watches, and it can reduce his depression and loneliness.

The negative impacts of TV are.

Children and youth watch violent content and try to imitate in the society.

Sexual contents corrupt the minds of teens and youth.

Fake and false advertisement also have negative impact.

Politicians can use this media to influence public opinion using paid tv news channels which are not good for the country.

Health related problems like obesity, diabetes, and problems related to the eye, social isolation can arise due to excessive viewing of the tv for long hours.

In conclusion, it is box it is our duty how we use this box to our use.

Everything has good and some bad, even it is applied for TV also.

TV plays a major role in this fast running days. I think the best advantage by TV is. A man can know about recent news in the world by watching TV even they are illiterate. Because we all know, in TVs they read the news which is showing on the screen and other advantages by watching TV is.

* Quick information about our surroundings.

* Sports news, social debates, educational information, information for farmers, entertainment.

* Live broadcasting and etc.

But the impact of TV in a negative way is more than a good way because most of the children use to see the TVs hours together it will lead to many health problems. Watching serials by ladies it creates family problems like unnecessary frustration by women.

Finally, my conclusion is if it is really watching for news or a program which gives some knowledge or a program which gives mental relaxation for the certain period of time is good.

The thing about watching TV is good or bad is depends on individuals preference.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

There are forecasting of some epic and historical stories on television which helps the children to gain knowledge about them which a children cannot understand properly in school books.

Hi everyone.

According to my point of view TV plays a very important role in present society. It influence is more on especially youth. 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.

Hi friends,

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.

Hi friends,

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. It has harmfully caused disruptions with the quality of family life, and morality in Indonesian society. I am able to agree on this point, but I do not feel that the totality of the influence is negative.

Considering the effects of television on children I guess that it is not just the kids who are to be blamed but parents are equally responsible.

Hello friends,

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.

The right side of the brain is responsible for Emotional feelings. Thus, this makes us to feel that everything in TV as real and true.

Merits of television are all news channel gives the current information of our country as well as world.

2. There are lots of entertainment channels for time pass only. Some comedy serial like Tarak Mehta, some inspire serial like Sadda Huq etc.

3. Lots of channel like discovery which shares the knowledge as well as research related information.

4. Lots of filmy channel.

5. It would be helpful for some company to advertised their product.

Demerits of television are,

1. Some people continuously on television whole day though they not watch any thing which is bad things and totally wastage of electricity.

2. There are also some channel which represents bad things which spoil our mind.

3. People become very lazy.

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.

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.

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.
