Television; the World at Our Tips, Is it Always Good? Percussions of Watching Television on Children?s Behavior: Mini Review

Eman Ahmed Zaky

Television (TV), a means of mass communication, has a significant influence on childrens behavior. It affects their sleep, weight, scholastic achievement, attitudes, and much more. It could be a great educator, entertainer, and a magnificent tool to get familiar with other cultures, people, and places that many of us might not have the chance to know anything about in real life. Nevertheless, spending too much time watching TV can deprive children from other healthy activities like outdoor play with friends, participating in different sports or artistic activities, and spending quality time with family members eating, talking, or reading. Furthermore, the screen time is not the only issue that it matters concerning the impact of TV watching on children as the quality of TV programs they watch could have a deleterious influence on their behavior with increased risk for violence and aggression, obesity, premature sexuality, and smoking or substance abuse. In conclusion, better safe than sorry parental policy seems a wise guideline to follow with children concerning their TV watching.
