The author not only discussed the shortcomings of the research article, but she made valid points as to how the research was meaningful and significant. The impact of the article leaves readers with the sense that there needs to be a change in what our children are watching. The research study proved that even in as little as nine minutes children’s overall cognitive functioning decreases when watching fast paced shows. By watching these fast paced shows (compared to drawing or educational programs) children are being primed to be A.D.H.D like impulsive and are not being able to control their attention spans, solve problems, or handle delay of gratification and working memory dilemmas. From the results and the article, parents should be aware of the consequences that these fast paced programs may have on their

INTRODUCTION “ELECTRONIC BABYSITTERS” We are going to review the effects of a child’s cognitive, emotional, moral and physical development in today’s technological society. My research and thoughts include topics of excessive television viewing, texting, iPads, mobile televisions in cars and video games and how they are affecting our children.

Moreover, these programs allow kids to learn about different morals and values of different cultures. Despite the advantages, too much television can lead into further problem of the development of the child.

Inclusion: An Argument for Accountability in Education Celise Luker Witherington SE 500 Fall 2014 Before 1975, children who were regarded as having special needs did not have access to a free, appropriate public education (FAPE). They were deprived of an education based on their disability. As time passed, parents and educators stood together to push for legislation to protect the rights of children with special needs. With the enacting of laws, such as the Education for all Handicapped Children Act (EAHCA 1975), Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 1990, 2004) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA 1990) special needs students were given access to a FAPE and learning in the least restrictive environment (LRE). According to the State of Alabama Department of Education website, based on the October 2013 Child Count, the number of children classified in the thirteen identified exceptionalities was 80,803 with the total number of students being 746,204.
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.

Recently, Nick Jr., originally a television block created in 1988 for a preschool audience, has even grown to the point that it will eclipse an entire other television channel and now run 24/7. This proves, now today more than ever, that the need to educate and enrich the hungry minds of young children is a base necessity that society cannot afford to reproach and disdainfully disregard. Recently, I sat down to watch and observe one such children's television program called “Ni Hao, Kai-Lan.” This type of educational children's show is one of several new shows taking a similar approach to teaching children about other cultures and languages, including Chinese and Spanish. At the onset of the episode, we are introduced to Kai-Lan, a precocious and outgoing 5 year old Chinese-American girl. She goes about her activities in a very fun and inviting manner.
We have all heard parents, politicians and other authorial figures saying that television teaches children anti-social behaviour. However other people, especially producers and managers of television programs, claim that the pro-social effects of television are more significant than the antisocial effects. Television can trigger both pro-social and anti-social behaviour. From my point of view pro-social aspects of television outweigh the anti-social aspects. Let’s take the kids program that can be seen between 6 and 9 o'clock in the morning.
