Nowadays, there are more and more electronic devices in the home, and children are usually used to being addicted to TV and other devices. Children who are addicted to mobile TV are usually more “self” and willful, because they can’t get the most important skills and experience of human interaction from these electronic media. We usually call them “screen children”! The increase of “screen children” may damage family relations!
The increase of “screen children” may damage family relations!
According to the survey, nearly half of children’s bedrooms in rich areas have TV, while 97% of children’s bedrooms in relatively poor areas have TV. Children in poorer areas are six times more likely to watch TV while eating dinner than children in richer areas. About a quarter of children admit that they also watch TV a lot during lunch on Sundays.
In relatively poor areas, children are more likely to watch commercial programs or adult oriented TV programs, and children are more likely to watch TV and surf the Internet without supervision.
The report says that the more time children spend watching TV, the more they have access to advertisements and the more materialistic they are. Children with a high degree of materialization are more likely to argue with their families, have a low evaluation of their parents, and have poor self-esteem.
Research also shows that children’s TV programs are losing their appeal to children. Many of the children in the survey said they don’t watch TV programs aimed at children. Less than half of 12 to 13 year olds list children’s shows on their favorite shows. Many 9-year-olds list soap operas and horror films as their favorite shows.
Dr. Naim, an expert on children’s issues, said: “so much watching TV and using computers has damaged children’s family relations. This may create a vicious circle. “
The negative effects of children’s frequent watching TV are far more than these. For example, some plots and pictures in TV may also affect children’s mood or sleep, and parents are expected to pay attention to them.
