watching tv instead of going out with friends and family
Has television destroyed communication among friends and family or not? As far as I am concerned, I agree with this because television causes people spend their free time watching television, become dependent to television and get bad habit of watching television.
Television causes most of us spend our free time watching it, for example, nowadays I watch television five hours per day, while some years ago I used to spend my free times with friends and family. When I use my free time watching television I surely can't see my friends and family to spend my free time with them and enjoy my free times. Television has affected not only my free times but also my study times. Therefore, television has bad effect on our relationships with friends and family.
Also, nowadays people become dependent to television. Whereas some people like to watch series, news and entertainment programs. Different and attractive programs in television attract our attention to become dependent to them. When people become dependent to television it affects our good and old relationship with friends and family. Even though we still spend some of our times with friends and family, the communication is not as good as we must have. So, watching television has destroyed communication with friends and family because we are dependent to it.
Moreover, watching television is a bad habit. Children are more affected by television. As far as I concern children spend much of their times watching entertainment programs on television which is a bad habit for them. Although, they have a lot of responsibilities such as studying and doing homework with their friends and family, they spend their time watching television. Not only children have this bad habit, but also teenagers and youths as well. Students who are studying university or college spend their time watching television instead of spending their time with their friends to participate in group discussions, so it is a bad habit for all of them. Watching television has destroyed relations of students with friends and family.
To sum up, in my view watching television has destroyed communication among friends and family. Because more and more people spend their free time watching television instead of going out with friends and family. Because of attractive and interesting programs on television people become dependent to it whilst they have a lot of responsibilities to do, so, this is a bad habit as well.
