Television has brought great changes to the way many children spend leisure
time. While some of these changes have been beneficial, others have had a harmful effect.

One of the innovations of the 19th century was the invention of television.
Indeed it made the world smaller. It is a communication medium that provides both information such as the news and entertainment. Throughout the years television got improved, it was originally black and white whereas now it is colored
Children nowadays spend much time watching television which is mainly due to the
countless cartoon networks such as Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon, just to
name some the majority of children are into. But what do children
get from watching television? On the positive side, children develop their
skills in language, they learn vocabulary which many of them also put
into practice when they talk to someone especially to their families and
friends. In addition, children also learn many things about the world. They
learn so many things about animals, plants, places, sports, even about

others become disobedient to their parents, they don't like to help washing the
dishes and other household chores because they are so focused on what they
are watching. It is also shocking sometimes that children learn to utter obscene,
harsh, or in a simpler term bad words. Parents do wonder how fast some children come

they become adults and that is what parents are trying to avoid.)

So what must parents do to control and guide the children when watching
television? These are some suggestions that may help when children are
watching television: stay with them, tell them what to watch and what
not to watch and explain why ( a very simple reason is that some channels
are not appropriate for young children), block the channel by setting the control
settings of a television which is now a feature of many televisions of today,
doing so, the children will not be able to access or view the channel since
it was set blocked. Although I admit that these may not still be 100% effective,
but taking action is better than doing nothing at all.
