Psychologists Reveal the Effect that Television Has on Children
December 1, 2017
Television has long been a normal part of our daily lives. And among its most insatiable consumers are our children. Sad to say, they eat up every crumb they can get!
Questions about the benefits and harmful effects of television are far from settled. Some experts say that television is extremely harmful to children. Others are convinced that it helps children grow and develop while their parents are busy with their own matters. What's the truth?
It's better for children under the age of 8 or 9 to get beneficial information from children's books or interactive programs.
Most modern psychologists believe that TV can educate and entertain children, but parents must control how much they watch.
Television's Influence on the Health and Mind of a Child
The idea that television is completely harmless to children is a huge misconception. First, watching a lot of TV creates an addiction to it. Second, television fosters the development of infantile characteristics and the inability to solve problems, since the image of life that it portrays is a long way from reality.
