Diet of television is the answer. I think parents should not replace a baby sitter for the TV, or even replace them selves for the TV. I know a lot of parents who prefer to sleep 30 minutes alone, and all they do is send their children to watch TV or play violent video games, they totally forget about the damage it is causing to them, and when they grow up parents complaint why their children are so violent with them and everybody else. I think the idea of built-in time-channel lock circuitry is awesome. Imagine a kid solving a puzzle -which will help to develop his brain- instead of watching TV; also this kind of activities will keep him safe from violence.
Studies of cognitive development indicate that television provides a stimulus for learning and that children learn from television. Educational programs can open new worlds for kids, giving them a chance to travel the globe, learn about different cultures, and gain exposure to ideas they may never encounter in their own community. However, the reverse can be true about television where it could provide a negative effect to the child by exposing to violence, inappropriate sexuality, offensive language, and risky behavior. Television can be a great tool to help kids learn. Educational programs such as Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, Kai-lan and etc.

Newton Minnow’s in his speech also refers to the idea television has the ability to influence people. He focuses mainly on children and that the content on TV does not benefit them. He emphasizes the fact that children, in 1961, spend as much time watching TV as they do in the school room. So Minnows asks the questions “is there no room on television to teach, to inform, to uplift, to stretch, to enlarge the capacities of our children? Is there no room for programs deepening their understanding of children in other lands” To relate Minnows to the current study of private broadcasting I will ask, If the goal of private broadcasting is suppose to ensure a more adequate performance of Canadian content to target all areas of the demographic population, do you think Canadian broadcasters have done an effective job?
He states that it is actually ironic that parents let children watch these G-rated movies when they are “minefields of terror,” as he quotes. Why is it that children are allowed to watch these movies, yet not allowed a horror movie? Perhaps it is because of the animation and some of the historical prestige of Disney after all. I am not one to judge Disney movies, in my opinion I enjoy some of them, but honestly there is a fine line of subliminal messaging involved. I believe king did not mention this to state he is against Disney movies, I think it was just to defend his idea that most horror themes and Disney movies are alike in many ways.
Censorship in television really relies on the person whom is watching either TV or a movie. But in most cases there is an underage kid who cannot watch certain things that should be censored and not all channels and movies are censored. Programs shown over television may contain offensive language or visuals, which may be harmful for the viewers like children. I believe that all programs on television should be censored by the government or a responsible group or even
By limiting the amount of time children watch television it is less aggression they may be viewing. Also a parent needs to be more involved in what shows are appropriate for their children to watch (163). Secondly, in a Diane Swanbrow article a study done by Psychological Science reports that, “People who play violent video games and watch violent movies are numb to the pain and suffering of other” (165). There was an article by Jon Bardin a writer for, Los Angeles Times that states, “Kids who play games like “Manhunt” and “Grand Theft Auto” are more likely to drive recklessly, according to a new study published in the academic journal Psychology of Popular Media Culture. On the other note, well-known author Gerard Jones states, “I am going to argue that it’s (violent entertainment) helped hundreds of people for everyone its hurt, and that it can help far more if we learn to use it well” (184).
A major reason for this is that studies show that, for a young child, “Part of the increase in aggressive behavior is linked to the amount of time children are allowed to play video games. In one study by Walsh (2000), a majority of teens admitted that their parents do not impose a time limit on the number of hours they are allowed to play video games” (A. Norcia). Social skills are a very important part of growing up. Most behavioral problems can happen from having a lack or deficiency in social skill, which may lead to very high level of anxiety and anger that will have a negative effect on social skills. So by being in a social environment will help promote social skills.
Using my imagination with Barbie and her friends helped me to create many different scenarios for Barbie. I had each house set up differently, even each car set up differently. When you’re young I think that you use your imagination more than any other time in your life. Growing up my parents allowed me to watch TV and do other activities, but I had rather play with my Barbies instead. Or I would sit in front of the television and play with my Barbies.
It is easy for me to see something on TV and know that it wouldn’t be right to replicate it. For a young child this may not be the case. Children tend to act out what they see on TV with their friends at school. As an adult I can choose what to and what not to watch based on how much violence I wasn’t to see or how much I can take. For children, the parents have to monitor what they watch and heed the TV rating systems to insure their children are not getting an unhealthy dose of violence.
