Too Much Terrorizing Television

on March 31, 2017

          I do think that parents should limit TV-time.  Below are reasons why I think the way I do.

          Parents should limit the amount of time their kids watch TV because it can actually rot your brain.  A rotted brain can cause loss of intelligence- which can then lead to horrifying school grades.  If I were to reduce the amount of TV my kids would watch, I would reduce it to 10 hours a week or less because the average child, age 2-5 years old, can watch more than 32 hours a week of television!  That can lead to really terrible grades

for when they take tests in school.

          Another reason why parents should limit TV watching to their children is because too much TV can obliterate the ability to concentrate.  If you can’t concentrate that well, paying attention in class would certainly be difficult.  Then again, if you don’t pay attention in class, you are going to get very bad grades.  Bad grades can lead to being kicked off (not literally) school-based sports’ teams.  

          Also, after just a few elementary seconds of watching TV, your brain slips into Hypnotic State.  When this “Hypnotic State” is in action, it provides easy access to the

subconscious.  That is one reason why it is easy to fall asleep while watching television.  People who get too much sleep during the day can experience headaches in the morning.  Parents who limit the amount of TV their kids watch could reduce the risk of headaches.

          Those are 3 reasons why I think that parents should reduce the amount of TV their kids watch.

Want to read about other peoples’ opinions about limitations on TV?  Here are some great ones:

Emily’s “Television Too Much For Youth?”  I really like how Emily clearly explains her reasoning in a thorough explanation.  She gives excellent examples throughout the whole piece of writing.  Check it out, believe me, it’s worth it.

Mae’s “No More Television for you, Missy or Mr”  In Mae’s post, she added her humorous personality into her post about her television opinion.  It is good GREAT and entertaining to read, or have someone read to you.  You should really check it out.

    Hi Summer!
    This is Naomie Online from Montreal, Canada. I find this is a fascinating subject to talk about. I think all parents should do the same. I don’t watch much of TV at all, but I do play WAY too much on my phone and 3DS. I just can’t help it. I will definitely take your advice for this. Seriously this is AMAZING! I am not kidding. Thanks for the information. Come visit me at: http://naomieonlinep.edublogs.org/

    Hello again,

    I hope you had a good week.You haven’t posted for a while. I hope everything is ok. This is a really good post and I would love to read more of what you have to say.

    Just to check are you prepared for the commenting game that will be coming up as part of the Student Challenge in a couple of weeks?
    1. Have you at least 5 other student blogs linked on the sidebar of your blog; blogs from other students around the world, not just those in your class or school. I see you have done this.
    2. Do you have a blogroll or link category called Global students or Global classes. I put a link about how to do this in my previous message. I see you have done this too.

    So Ms. Wyatt’s essentials in a great post are below. I have added whether I think you have achieved this in your most recent post:
    1. A catchy title. Yes certainly you have one. I love the alliteration.
    2. At least one visual (with attribution) whether photo, cartoon, video or another web 2.0 tool like padlet or glogster. Two interesting visuals both with attributions. Well done.
    3. An interesting topic with your passion for the subject coming through. This is certainly true. Really good. This was a well written and thought provoking post.
    4. A post that is well written and not copy/pasted from somewhere else. Yes you are original in your writing here.
    5. A post has been proofread and spellchecked. This is certainly true.
    6. One that is written in paragraphs – at least three of them. Well done. You have done this.
    7. One that includes links to other websites on similar topics – at least two of these. Many students are not doing this but you are. Well done.

    So you have achieved done really well. Ms.Wyatt says that if your post covers the seven things mentioned above e.g. has a catchy title, includes at least one visual etc. etc., it will be added to the flipboard magazine.

    Unfortunately this is a post from a few weeks back and not a current one.

    I would also make clear when a post is a response to the Student Blogging Challenge by adding the hashtag
    #stubc17 and the week number to the title.

    Hope you find this helpful. Hope to read a wonderful, brand new, up to date post soon.

    With every good wish
