Clashes of advantages Television serves as disadvantage to most of the children. Majority of the children lack interest in watching informative shows, they say “Oh Man” or “This documentary makes me sick”. Smaller kids on watching violent cartoon contents like tom & jerry use it for them as an advantage.

Problems There are many people who cultivate an hobby of watching television serials continuously like 24X7. They become totally slave and jailed into it. Telecasting commercials in middle of every show serves as disadvantage like it’s a good trap of getting customers to buy their products.


Prevention Be “Casual” of what you watch. If casual cannot be brought in hold, do some work like kitchen work, bringing juice from refrigerator, cutting apple not infront of television during break time. For television serial addicts, the solution which can be given is “think practical” Or “Go out somewhere with your family or friends or alone (Pass sometime outside)”.


Problems Children watching for long period of time affects: Eyes and Nerves Encourages you to Bunk classes Reduces Stamina Affects Sleep Reduce influence with outside world if gets more insane


Solutions Keep up distance from television about 1 or 2 meters away or provide television screen which reduces affecting eyes and nerves. Try not to watch television switching off all the light. Go out to have some fresh air like going to beach, park or taking evening walk.


Solutions Sacrificing sleep and studies for television is really stupid because the same episode and same show will be broadcasted again on next day or by the end of the week. If its not broadcasted again, the next episode or next show will be more perfect which will compromise your mind for losing previous week television show. After all, television is not our life.


Problems The proliferation of new channels that provides additional educational opportunities also provides opportunities for children to be exposed to more inappropriate content than ever before. It is not uncommon for children to have access to movies and programs intended to be viewed only by mature audiences.


Problems The unfettered access to adult material by children appears to manifest itself in a variety of different ways where most people would agree that today’s children are more aware of adult themes (such as sex and violence) at an earlier age than ever before.


Solutions Creating hobbies like stamp collection, writing stories, poems, gardening, shopping or cooking are only to escape from this problem. Communicating with people in and around irritates you to watch such content. Spend some time for playing videogames or reading magazines relating your favorite subject like automobiles, computers, etc
