Let Kids Have Their Way with TV, It Helps and Seldom Ruins

By Nathan Brown T Subscribe to RSS | January 12th 2012 | Views:

Besides the class rooms the single large influence on the kids is the TV. There is virtually no household in US that own two more TVs and subscribe to subscribe to TV services like the Verizon FiOS TV for example. TVs are no more a mundane affair as it used to be decades back when they were usually meant for entertainment or news. Today they even seem to be substituting and complementing class room teaching in a big way that the older generation would hardly have imagined.

Kids generally spend about 20-25 hours a week on an average before the TV, and not to mention the substantial hours that they spend before the computers. While parental control on kids is desirable, dismissing the TV as a kids' bane is just as much as derailing their learning curve. Kids need to be taught in schools no doubt, but the hours they spend there isn't enough to give them a wholesome experience. And that is where cable and satellite TVs give a smug fit. Restricting what they watch on TV can be counterproductive and they don't work because they will ultimately get to watching them one day. Instead it will do well to educate them what will work best for them, a little guidance from the parents is all that it takes.

Here are many other reasons why TV is a must for kids:

a.Televisions give an enjoyable ambience for the kids; usually they are friendly, riveting, free from totalitarianism, and non rote like yesteryears. It also gives them control over what will want to watch and learn because of the wide varieties of channels they can choose from.

b.TVs will help kids to look even beyond the horizon. It will help them to travel beyond the geographical restrictions to which they are confined. Understand other people, nationalities, countries, customs and practices as well.

c.It will let children enjoy the best of arts and entertainment that were once upon a time the exclusive privilege of the wealthy and rich people who could afford to spend tons of money on travel and stay. TVs are today able to bring all that into the kid's drawing room and with least expenses for their parents.

d.TVs will let your kids grow their fantasy into a real life experience. Without the TVs do you think it would be possible to give them the experience of a space walk or for that matter what the surface of the moon would look like? TVs can substitute for a hundred still images. It will help your child to take the boredom out of the science.

e.It will let them critically under the geopolitical situation in which they are living. It will help them to under industry, education, social and economic situations better, just as much it would help them under the family that they are part of.

f.Contrary to the common notion, TVs actually help kids become good book readers. It helps trigger the passion in them to get more information from books and magazines, participate in debates and even become good writer, singers, script writers etc. All of which is seldom done in a typical class room setting.

g.The TV is sort of a self learning mechanism kit for your kids. It can help them to learn sports better, become a good cook in their later part of life, teach them hygiene, dance and painting as well. There is practically no field that the TV channels have not touched upon.

h.Does the adult oriented programs and violence bother parents? If you tried keeping them away from those channels, you are actually doing them a disservice, and don't forget that you cannot stop them from viewing such channels either. It is all part of the game called growing up.
