Furthermore, Children lack of social interaction caused them beloved of TV program than they social interaction. And the last, TV make them poor of knowledge and less alert during in school, not attracted during in school.TV program not only give good effect, but in reality, TV gives more bad effect on children especially in education aspect.
To begin with, children often become lazy because they enjoy with program in TV. TV viewing is a sedentary activity, and has been proven to be a significant factor in childhood obesity. According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada almost one in four Canadian children, between seven and 12, is obese. Time spent in front of the TV is often at the expense of more active pastimes. Moreover, to give perspective on just how much violence kids see on TV, consider this: the average American child will witness 200,000 violent acts on television by age 18. Kids may become desensitized to violence and more aggressive. Indeed, children often become lazy, for example they do not pray on time.
