According to me, watching television is not harmful to us if we don't watcha negative view.

If we watch to get some knowledge, it will be very helpful for us because Tv is a platform where we get to know so many extra knowledge current affairs, many new places which we can't imagine in daily life.

So, at last, I want to say that it is not waste of time.

I cannot deny the fact that today's generations are far sharper than ours. Because of TV, they have more exposure. We are using TV only for the entertainment purpose and so kids are addicted to these cartoon channels.

We can play a game with our kids.

Hi friends I'm Praveen,

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 have a very big impact on the Women this can lead to unnecessary frustration and quarrel among the family members and etc. So the television should be used only for a limited amount of time and purpose.

By watching television a person becomes aware of what he wasn't aware of. It is a medium through which a person inculcates positive as well as negative thoughts, it changes the attitude and behavior of them. But, everything seems good to a certain limit but television has a negative aspect too. It is like an open book, people those are very far away from the real world comes across through it. Like foreign channels ruin the youngsters & they easily get provoke for doing wrong things many adult programs run on the channels make the people evil minded. And then they got into bad things. People must understand that some things are fictional they are not in real. Like vampires, people get scared as they hear it. But Do, they really exist? Who knows that it's good that it has imaginary world around it but when we see it in real life nothing is alike it. So believe watching television must be in a limit is good & essential too but should not get stuck around it for a long, as it is not useful and worthless.

Guys today we are going to discuss on the effects of television on youth.

In my view, television has both positive and negative aspects in today's society. Yeah, In olden days the movies are prepared on the basis of moral values, culture etc. But today's movies are totally filled with filthy things. Yes, these movies are deviating youth a lot. Watching movie is not a crime but grasping the unwanted things will be a crime. In olden days small kids used to sat beside their grandma and grand father to listen to moral and interesting stories. But now even these kids had a habit of watching T. V for long hours. We can't blame such small kids for watching because they were influenced by their elderly people. Since it's not too late still we have many opportunities to take part as a youth, we must be a role model for a future generation. So save time, gain knowledge from books, novels or some educational websites.

Television has its merits and demerits. I particularly think that we shouldn't overlook the negative effects of television on the youth as it showcases programs which reflect diverse cultures. Television has an undoubtedly huge influence on the youth as much as l hate to say this through this vice the youth have lost the true essence of beauty celebrities who get surgeries for butt enhancements. Seriously!?, it's pathetic now almost every girl thinks that true beauty is defined by body shape and that is ridiculously wrong. Yes, we can't control we they choose to broadcast on television but at least being able to pinpoint how much these celebrities who showcase on tv are actually influencing the youth negatively would be a step forward. It has also resulted in a complete dilution of cultural and moral values due to the imitation and adoption of some of the worst and unacceptable tendencies. I can't fully pose the blame on the youth for not being cautious on what to and what not to adopt and imitate. We are just victims of a generation that has lost the almost true essence of everything.

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.

TV is a very useful device to update with society. Good programs will come on the TV as well as bad too.

Television is considered as an Idiot box for some people and an instrument/device of knowledge for some. It is up to us whether to take it as the source of knowledge or as a source disaster for our youth.

If we adopt the habit of watching good shows based on science, general knowledge, decent news then it will definitely help us to grab quality knowledge.

Youth gets attracted to TV. It can be good as well as bad. There are some channels which explain the growing science and technology, whereas some are useless and misguide the children. In fact, they are time busters. So students should take their responsibility by choosing right channels.

Hi friends,

Children today sit for passively in front of TV and get influenced in a bad way by advertisements and programs then parents due to TV a curse. But when the children watch sporting events or educative programs parents feel that the TV is a blessing.

Advertisements that create social awareness of pull polio programs or adult literacy or eye donated campaigns can do a lot to influence society.

This if TV is judiciary used it can be a blessing, not a curse.

Hi friends,

In my point of view, television is one of the biggest sources of knowledge for youth. But it depending upon individually because different people has different mentality so it useful for breaking news, creative show, movie channel, lifestyle shows, etc. But it hazardous for human eyes. So television is 50-50 % useful and hazardous. But finally, depend on individually as I told you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Television is just for entertainment. It gives us many information. Just like discovere. News geographic or sports etc.

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

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.

It's in our hands, if we use it as a good one it will be pleasant, happy, if not we will have to pay for that.

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.
