Hi I have an IELTS exam coming this Saturday, any suggestions for improvement will be appreciated.Many people believe that television programs are of no value for children. Do you agree? Why or why not? Provide reasons and examples to support your response.
It is no doubt that watching television has a huge effect on people of all ages especially for children. Although some of these presents less or no value for the young viewers, I believe that there are TV shows that intends to present educational values for children on their programs.
Many TV network companies are telecasting basic mathematical and alphabetical equations programs everyday. Take "ABC For Kids" on channel 10 in Australia for example, they are targeting young audiences of the society to watch and learn from these shows and hoping that they can use this knowledge when in class. Also, children can learn to sing and dance by seeing entertainment programs on TV. These are some ways of showing that there are significant values gained from watching the television.
In addition, many parents predisposed their children to watch television shows that oversee the value of life, family and friends. These parents use television to bond with their children as well and take this opportunity to watch and at the same time answer the questions of the young innocent minds with regards to love, care and respect for instance. Some programs also show how kissing and hugging a crying person supports them in the time of need for example, proves that by watching television this can be imitated by children.
Given that there are some TV programs that are of less value for the youngsters because it contains violence, for example, there has been an undeniable existence of valuable TV programs to watch. It is recommended that parental guidance must take place all the time.
