Task:Children can learn from TV effectively. So children should be encouraged to watch TV regularly both at home and at school. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
When it comes to the issue about whether watching TV should be recommended for children, some people argue that parents should encourage their children to watch TV programs every day both at school and after school since they could acquire more knowledge. However, I cannot agree with this opinion.
To begin with, TV programs may distract children’s attention from study, which accounts for the reason why children should not spend too long time on TV programs. For most children, courses at school seem more boring while TV programs could be more interesting because there are funny plots, interesting characters and sound effects in TV programs. Then, children may be capable of focusing on their classes and cannot fully understand what teachers teach. In order prevent children from collapsing in front of a screen every day, children should be restricted for watching TV programs.
Furthermore, there may exist some inappropriate contents inside some programs exerting a negative influence on children. With the classification and rating administration in movies, children could avoid seeing many scenes concerning about drugs and violence. However, no one can fully guarantee that children can be absolutely away from those inappropriate programs on TV. Since children cannot distinguish right from wrong, they may imitate some bad behaviors, such as bullying others.
Admittedly, some opponents argue that watching TV enables children to broaden their horizons so they should see TV programs regularly; however, they are overoptimistic about this merit. It is true that some scientific and educational programs can help children acquire some knowledge in advance, but how much knowledge children can absorb remains a question. Unlike adults, children may find it too difficult to remember too much information at a time. For most children, it is enough for them to understand knowledge they learn at school and it may even become an extra burden on students if they are forced to watch more TV programs.
In sum, spending time on TV programs at school and at home may not be an optimal choice for children, considering that they may lose interests in study and simulate some bad behaviors.
