Television: Harmful Effects in Social lifeBY: Yoshi | Category: Entertainment | Post Date: 2009-02-11
Television has become a -member- of almost every single family on our planet and not just an ordinary member, but a very important one, because the time spent next to it exceeds the amount of time spent together with any other family member. You do not have to apply any efforts to talk or listen to complaints while -communicating- with it. It is so simple that it has become an integral part of the culture of every family. It is the only time, when a person can forget about all the family troubles and the failures of the day. The sofa opposite the TV set has become the place of -reconciliation and spiritual unity- of the family.
It is senseless to deny the all-embracing harmful effect the existence of television has brought to our lives. But to make our point of view ultimately convincing we will introduce to your attention certain facts that people do not want to accept and often try to justify. The base of the tomorrow's society - are children today. And on the way they develop depends how are world is going to look like tomorrow. The television negative effect facts that are well known to every single parent, but are ignored by them in order to put the responsibility for bringing up kids and showing them examples through interaction on the shoulders of somebody else.
Many years before the examples of imitation for children were their own parents; now these examples come from hit-thrillers and violent films where the personages imitated are cruel, impartial and often purely negative personages. Nowadays, resulting this phenomenon, children instead of playing leap-and-frog on the open air pretend to be -terminators- and run around -killing- each other. The fact of child's identification with a -negative- destructive image has a vital impact on the development of his or her personality. Violence becomes an ordinary way of interaction, alongside with anger.
Television has also a great influence on the self-image of people watching it. We see perfectly shaped bodies hundred of times per day. All the men shown on the TV screen have big muscles and are handsome, and all the women shown are very skinny and their faces and bodies look like a complete perfection. This has caused numerous eating disorders, especially in the teenage group. Such things as bulemia, anorexia and self-mutilation became a well-spread phenomenon.
A person, especially a child that spends a lot of time next to the TV-set has a very high probability of damaging the eye mechanics and the ability to focus and pay attention. Another negative influence that is connected with the sight is the spoiling of the hearing due to the shortage of auditory stimulation. Even if the programs watched are not violent, if they are watched per hours may have a deep impact on the personality, causing psychological and physiological problems.
Television prevents children from doing their homework and adults from completing their work, influencing in a very bad manner the school grades and work productivity. It lowers the overage level of physical fitness of a person, breaking the coordination. Children being attached to the TV-set loose the possibility to learn the world through real nature, games, sports, etc. They do not learn the messages that a book carries inside. Television has converted our lives into a nightmare. A nightmare where children kill not only on the TV screen and adults loose their will sitting next to the TV-set eating -junk food-. A nightmare where the time spent by a family next to the TV-set watching a soup-opera is considered to be -family time-. It is a nightmare where violent television performs the role of the parents. What else can be said to show that television destroys the healthy development of a child's personality. It has turned our lives into an addiction that suppresses the beauty of our real life by the violent substitution and can without any doubts be called one of the worst inventions of modern times.
