Some people think watching television by children poses negative impact every way but others think that it is a positive development. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Sample Answer:-

It is undeniable the fact that television is the best source of  amusement for the individuals. Some people assert that watching television can bring a positive development on youngsters. While, opponents insist that it has a negative impact. I concur with former statement. I will discuss both views in subsequent paragraph.

To open the deliberation with most prominent reason of positive impacts of watching television by youths is that adolescence can rejuvenates their exhausted mind by virtue of television as nowadays, there is a voluminoussyllabus of their study which put more burden on them. Owing to this, they can entertain themselves with the assistance of television by watching distinct shows, listening music and so on. As a result, they can not only relax their minds, but also can get rid from the anxiety. Pondering to the next view, children can kill their leisure time by watching television, instead of indulging in anti-social activities. Despite of it, juveniles can also stay up to date with whole world by getting the news on the burning issues. For instance, in these days, children are giving morepreference to watch news on the television in spite of reading newspaper because it renders both visual as well as audio effects. Consequently, they can enhance their spectrum of knowledge.

On the paradoxical sides, despite of having positive effects, it has negative development. The most dominant reason is that it distracts the mind of the children from the study because of the television youngsters spend their most of the time while sitting in  the front of the televisionrather thanemphasis on the study. Therefore, it is not only decline the academic performance, but also give birth to deskboundlifestyle. Apart from this, celebrities are the role model for the children which means whatever celebrities do in the television, they just imitate them either it is a positive or negative effect. To cite an example, Advertisement of Coca-Cola which endorse by a Salman Khan and this product attain a popularity because of Salman Khan ultimately, juveniles get influence by their role-model. Thus, consumption of their product has been increased.

To recapitulate, it would be opt to state that although both views have their own importance yet I think it influence the children positively.
