These days television is present in everyone’s house. Everybody is setting up very expensive and big TVs in their houses. Television is very useful in getting any current news, entertainment shows, historical shows, etc. Here you can watch comedy, horror and what not to entertain yourself anytime. Tv has provided entertainment for every age group. These days people are enjoying themselves with the cricket world cup where they are watching an unbeatable Indian cricket match. These days people can watch any show on repeat telecast either on the TV itself or on the apps provided by all TV channels.
But with so many pros of television, it has some major side effects which are a kind of invisible cons. Children who are the silent observers of our house are watching each and everything silently and like a silent killer, television is giving a bad effect on our children. They are watching almost everything with their family members. Moreover, parents are unintentionally not noticing this fact. In fact, advertisements these days are not so children-friendly. So, we should try to avoid ads as well. Even cartoon shows which are mostly seen by children have also contained some content which are giving bad effects on children. As a result, children start adapting and behaving like those cartoon characters. Sometimes, these shows are also showing children how to misbehave with their parents which is highly prevailing in these shows, as children start to idolise those characters because of their likeness towards them. These types of behavior are a matter of concern for parents.
This can be sorted by the continuous effort of parents and family both. By taking some effective measures like avoid watching serials in front of the children or at least engaging them somewhere (if you can’t get rid of your serial habit) during that time, might help parents to let their children avoid watching those non-sensible shows. Other solution can be, as almost everybody has smart TV these days, it is better to apply child lock facility to your TV that when your child will try to watch anything on TV, he can be safe from watching anything misleading.
Moreover, many apps are available these days to watch anything, anytime, and anywhere. It is not just TV that is playing the role of a devil in children’s lives. These apps are also contributing to the bad effect on children.
