TV programs kill the manners of children. Do you agree?
Posted Date: 12 Feb 2012 Posted By:: Naresh Kumar Behera Member Level: Gold Member Rank: 145 Points: 5
Nowadays, children are mentally very much attached to TV, internet, video gaming, mobile phones etc. These electronic gadgets are very much enjoyable and necessary for human beings. We know that there are extremely benefits from watching TV; such as to get worldwide information, knowing current affairs, refreshing the mind, etc. However, the good things are not fully engrossed and reflected, as bad things do quickly. Due to watching of TV shows and programs, many children behave as they view at TVs. Some of the points I would like to share here which can be implemented for betterment of children, those watches TV:
1. Award winning shows; which creates aggressiveness and impoliteness among children or students to participate and grab the prize at any rate. Otherwise, create suicide attempts or considerations among them, if got failed.
2. Programs should mention the criteria of viewer's age limit, before starting the show and while running the show (in a top corner); so that their parents could warn their children or switch the channel immediately.
3. Up to the age of 13, a child will learn and chase as their parents teach. Therefore, up to the age of 13, parents should watch their activities and behaviour and guide them time by time. If parents are watching the program with their children; after finishing the show or program, they should ask what they learn from the program or teach the moral of that program immediately. So that, the good notions will assemble in the child's brain.
4. Parents should restrict the TV programs, which contains crime, sex and violence. Even after seeing a mythological serial, parent should tell the moral of that episode.
These steps will boost the good attitude, behaviour, manners of children; with lessening the criminal, violent, aggressive natures in children. Please share more ideas or pros and cons of watching TV programs by children.

Ofcourse TV programs have started to bring negative behaviour on children attitude. They are addicted or in more sense get fansied by the stunts whichare depicted in the programs and try to repeat that. Parental guidance is very important in this budding age and so they can grown up in right path.
Destruction of our culture is also a product of such TV programs. It is the right time for both the Government and parent to check on their respective responsibilities.

Television programmes and movies are not only killing the manners of children but everything. The television has caused so much havoc in the lives of human beings that it is hard to enumerate. Culture and tradition has gone down the drain because of television. Everything has been so romanticized that people have not been able to handle the realities of life. Television has also led to people living in affluence and wasting more money than ever in everything from marriages to birthday parties. Children think that they can imitate everything from the idiot box and be cool about it. They do not have the courage to do anything else other than what is shown on television. They like to walk and talk like the people in the movies and everything else for them is bad or not worth it. People have forgotten their languages and have learnt to talk in the language of the movies. They cry when a actor dies in the serial because the script requires it but will turn a deaf ear to a person dying in the neighbourhood.

I am agree with you that today's tv programmes kill the manners of today's young generation. But that is also true that sometimes these shows are good and sometimes not. Some shows plays a significant role to provide a better environment for children. Even there are many shows that are not really good for children.

I do agree with you Naresh, it is true that TV programs and movies kill the manners of children. They gives importance to comedy and don't think what would be their effect on small children. In spite of giving importance on more values, they give importance on violence and comedy. Such programs always misguide a small child and damage its character.
Thanks and regards,

Yes, this has certianly affected out country's young generation in a long way. These TV channels are so much unreal that they make the children think in ways other than human. These are addictive unfortunately and hence we see the trend of repeating of such things in our children around us. This is a very unfortunate thing as these TV shows have established a stranglehold on the youth of this country. Also these programs do not have any proper intent and always are exciting which increases the chances of hyper active qualities being developed. Many people in India are hyper active because of this same reason. These programs are self centered are only used by the creators for personal gains. They are damaging the society over all through these worthless shows.
The measures suggested by you are really helpful and some parents have already started to implement these as I have seen in houses around in my locality. The children very much need to be moderated as the TV can be a dangerous facility.

Some programs shown on television does have a negative effect on the children. But we cannot blame the television alone for this. What is happening around them and in their houses combines with the TV in moulding a child. Though the children of today are showing more maturity, it has to be accepted that they are growing up to be mentally and physically weak citizens. One has, of course, to keep a watch on their child, but then where is the limit? They are already aware of being watched and hence have their own mechanisms to go out of the spy ring. One thing we must remember is that today's children are very sensitive (like bahus in soaps) and therefore must be dealt with very carefully.

I think watching TV for children is not a good thing. Todys children are less healthy than that of earlier age. TV wathcing leads the children to confine in the room. Slowly they get addicted with the TV programmes. It makes the children become lazy and they are reluctant to obey their seniors' instructions. It is my view. In the earlier time childrens were obident to their seniors but todays children are reluctant to obey their seniors. I think it is the impact of TV watching. TV watching gives the children artificial culture. What they are watching thy try to follow those things. They forget their natural environment. Children should be familior with their all relatives with whom they are living as well as animals, plants whatever they observe physically. Only for entertainment or refreshment few times with their parents they should watch TV. But todays childrens are more attached with the TV than their environment. In future these childrens would become nuclear they only know the things inside their room.
I think myself is on the totally different way to the other members in this regard. But really it is my feeling. TV watching should be prohibitted for the childrens.

Yes it is the fact that televisions are penetrating deep into the heart of children and what ever appears on it will have greater impact in their life. Many wrong manners are shown on the tv which are easily aped by the children and they wont forget. That is why the advertisers, the program producers much take care to deal with children and their subject. Tv must kept away from the child in infant days.

Yes I do agree with you that tv programs are actually changing the behaviour of the children and if you go back in the past times; you will be able to notice that wrestling was one of the fact that greatly influenced the children; creating so many problems.
And then the thing just went on and on and now children tend to do whatever goes on the tv and even it is not appropriate for a child to say or do that; but it is now difficult to get rid of such habit.
For that it is better that we make the child understand that it is not for real.

This is the third or fourth post on the site talking about the evils of television. TV can be a boon or a bane for children depends on what your child is watching. As parents you can definitely monitor the programmes that your child watches. Everything from TV viewing to internet access is permissible for children but there has to be moderation. One should not be addicted to anything. I say the same thing when one talks about the use of mobile phones, Facebook, computers, gadgets etc.

Yes, I do agree. Television programmes make the children addicted to some of their favourite serials. The children become literally deaf if amidst their serials they are asked to do something. They even fail to answer some of the queries which you may make. Sometimes, their behaviour changes and they tend to forget a few important atticates. They at times start behaving arrogant and seem to be out of their head. The children should be allowed to watch television for limited time. They should be allowed to watch few serials that are good and informative for them.

While asking the TV serial/film makers, they are telling that they are making such films/serials only based on the real happenings. In this situation, criticizing the TV serials and cinemas is not correct. One thing is there, in earlier films the detailed actions have not been shown. For example:for marriage a couple's photo was shown, for escaping from a room - an opened cage with flying bird was shown, for death of a person- the person's photo was shown with garland etc., But the films and serials nowadays showing deeply about the situations as real marriage,death,killing,chopping the head with peeping blood etc., WHICH SHOULD BE AVOIDED.

Mr. Naresh Kumar Behera,
I agree with you as per your thread.
I have long back posted a thread regarding the violence in the cartoons and the other on the abusive language being used in the reality shows.
The TV of the present times in not much of learning but full of vulgarity, which is spoiling the kids at a rapid pace.
Thanks to the setup boxes which have the feature of parental control. This can help the parents to lock few channels, which they think that might pollute the tender brains of our kids.
But again the most important factor is the vigil of the parents who don't have much time for their kids nowadays.
It is our responsibility as to keep an eye as to what our children are watching.
The news sometimes is full of obscenity and full of vulgar information, this cannot be controlled, perhaps we can just change the channel instantly.

As read in today's newspapers, two students of a school of Virudhunagar,near Madurai, got arrested as they threatened the teachers who asked them to to come for prayer session,as 'not to make them to kill as in the case of chennai school'. By seeing this one cannot come to a conclusion that 'news papers are killing the manners of children. Totally the children should be under strict watch of PARENTS and they should heed the instructions/advice of teachers as for as the activities of themin the school concerned. Neglecting parents should suffer like the parents of the boy who killed the teacher.

The fact is that children are growing up faster than they should be. Their mentality is very much different from what it used to be a few years back. They are more outgoing. Heroism of the negative note seems to have struck a chord with them. They have started adoring anything that goes against the system. They are being influenced by all wrong doings around them.
The media should stop giving undue importance to daredevil acts by mentally deranged people.
The Government Of India must introspect to see whether there is any flaw in the present education system. Otherwise the future of India is going to get into dirty hands.
