Nowadays, TV is such a common household communication device in homes, as a source of entertainment and news. The family members in homes mostly often watch TV including children. Especially for children, TV has its advantages and its disadvantages that depends on how much time the children watch TV and what kinds of program the children watch. One advantage of TV for the children is TV provides opportunities for children to learn about all kinds of things. In another word, the children can increase their knowledge by watching TV. For example, preschoolers can get help learning the alphabet on public television, grade-schoolers can learn about wildlife on nature shows, and parents can keep up with current events on the evening news. No doubt about it, TV can be an excellent educator and entertainer. Another advantage of TV is it can increase children’s range of interest since it exposes them to a variety of activities and topics. If the activities on TV interest them, they will try to do the same activities. It means they get a motivation from TV and it is influence their way of life. For instance, they interest at a movie on TV which the character is smart, diligent, and polite so that they will imitate that character.  Another advantage of children’s TV watching is the children can be creative and imaginative to make something new such as handicrafts, dolls, or something like that. Meanwhile, despite its advantages, too much TV can be detrimental the children who consistently spend more than 4 hours per day watching TV. They are more likely to be overweight, because they are inactive and mostly tend to snack while watching TV.  Another disadvantage is TV probably makes most of the children become lazy to do other important things like their homework.  Some negative program on TV such as scary-looking things like monsters, violence, and information about sex on TV can influence the children’s attitude as well. Scary-looking things like grotesque monsters especially frighten children aged two to seven. The children under age eight cannot always tell the difference between fantasy and reality. The children who view violent acts are more likely to show aggressive behavior but also fear that the world is scary and that something bad will happen to them. TV characters often depict risky behaviors as well, such as smoking and drinking, and also reinforce gender-role and racial stereotypes. The commercial advertisements on TV also give bad influences to the children. They do not know what the exact purpose of the commercial advertisement is on TV so that they might be a victim. They probably want to buy unimportant things which are shown on the commercial advertisement. In brief, TV has its advantages and its disadvantages especially for children who mostly spend their time watching TV. Clearly, not all programs need please everybody. In this case, the parents do have a choice of programs, they also have a choice for themselves and their children of watching or not watching TV. There is an “Off” button on every set. J
