Тема эссе: Some people believe that watching TV can have harmful effects on children.
It is a well-known fact that television has become an integral part in our lives. Nowadays, it is one of the most popular means of mass media. However, there are people who consider watching TV harmful for children.
Of course, there are two sides of the coin. I personally think that TV has a lot of disadvantages, especially for children. Firstly, watching TV for a very long time can affect your child's eyesight. Moreover, your child will try to do his homework as soon as possible in order to have more time for watching TV, therefore his progress in studies will not improve. Finally, your child might become TV-addicted. If it happens, he will be glued to the TV-set all day long in spite of going out with his peers.
However, there are people who disagree with this opinion. They claim that watching TV can be very useful for children as there are a lot of educational programmes, good cartoons and so on.
Actually, there are programmes that can enrich chidren's knowledge.
Nevertheless, there are still a lot of programmes that include violent scenes. In my opinion, it can affect children's psychological development.
To sum up, it is up to you to decide whether to let your child watch TV or not. As for me, television has both positive and negative sides.
