You are right. sometimes they do not even have to see the things that are shown on TV to become beasts when you grow up. Not TV screen will contain all the violence and injustice that we may experience in our real life. And when I say that I will do my best to protect my kind from the violence in this world - the TV programs is the last thing that I am speaking about. Actualyl, perhaps it is even good in some way that such things are shown on TV. That helps kids to understand that this world stretches much further then the loving embraces of their parents.

I will agree with some ideas that lots depend on upbringing. Sure TV and PC have a big impact on child’s psyche. We mustn’t forget to limit that time, to check what is attractive there for your infant. Violent games, horrors are very destructive for child’s understanding of good and bad in this world. It’s only parents’ duty to explain a child about what things are worth to do, how to make friends with people, how to be a good man. They can be the best source of information. So if the child grows and one observes bad traits of character in his behavior it’s only parents’ fault.

It is a wide spread habit of bad parents to put all the blame in their kids flaws on the society and the TV.. While you are a kid - your parents are the world for you, you do see everything trough the prism of what they taught you and what they are telling you regarding each question asken. Besides - the parents can decide what the kinds should watch on the TV as well - inst that the part of upbringing?:) So it is silly to blame anyone else , except themselves. when I will have my kids - they will watch only what I am going to allow them - at least to the age of 9 years)

Bad parents always put the blame on someone else. As all the lazy and silly people prefer to put the blame for the miserableness of their lives on someone else.. On the society, on the government, on the mass media, on other nation. the last one was really popular during the history of the mankind) So when I hear a parent is speaking about the "bad influence" of the television - I do ask that parent - what can you offer the kind in change for that? Usually they do not have anything to say, but they just start to argue and asking me if I do have kids)

On my experience, they do have lot of things to answer on that one) Because you do know that the best defence method is the attack?:) They start to tell you such savage nonsense, that you are trying to end the discussion as fast as you can - and that is the reason they feel themselves the victors in this argue - and therefore they convince themselves once again that they are right on this point. Though they do know that is not so, even though they are continuing to lie to themselves. So I do prefer not to start this kind of discussions with such parents.

i think tat parents shall not let their children spend a lot of time in front of the screen. i know that a lot of people who are not parents tell that they would never let their children spend a lot of time in front of the screen. ut i understand that o not all parents have enough strength to spend all the time with the child. sometimes you just want to do anything for yourself. and you have to give your child the tablet and switch cartoons on, and sometimes you may also just let your child play on your cell phone. it is normal but you have to explain your children that it is not normal to spend a lot of time in front of the screen.

You do know that the kids usually do not listen to that kind of reasoning.. they do the things that they like to do - not the ones that they are ordered to do.. That is why, in my opinion it would be better to distract the kid from the screen with something else. For example - some kind of sports - or any kind of activity outdoors. I am sure the kid will like it more. Besides - he would rather be tempted with your attention, than with the cartoons on the TV. You need to find some kind of activity, that would seem to be interesting for your child - and then you will see he is not going to remember about the TV.

Especially if you are talking about teenager he is tend to have some attempts of aggression. It could be not upbringing and even not TV but the teenagers of the same age as your child, he learns it outside, he see how other children behave themselves and he tries to repeat it.

I think i will agree to the idea that nowadays there is a lot of TV shows, programs in general which bring violence. elevision violence is about murders, bloodshed, explosions, disaster and death. TV shows often demonstrate hitting, stabbing, screaming, thus expressing negativity. and very often parents pay little attention to all this. :evil:

If you mean that the TV is a part of that outside world you are speaking about - that is true. Though the situation is pretty much different now. The peak of the TV influence on the human kind was in 90's, when the era of the internet was still ahead. These days we do have other kind of the situation. Today we (including kids may actually choose, what kind of information we would like to get. And it would be really interesting to see what kind of the info kids consume ion the net. So this topic is a bit out of time.. It would be more important to ask - what is the influence on the NET on the upbringing of the kid.
