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
There were a lot of emotions used, like for example “Self-confessed television addict often feel they ought to do other things, but the fact that they don’t read and plant their garden or sew or crochet or play games or have conversations means that those activities are no longer as desirable as television viewing”, (Winn) In my opinion she is saying that television addicts no longer have the passion for anything anymore, television takes away from the small things that are fun to do. Another example of pathos, “And yet television does not satisfy, else why would the viewer continue to watch hour after hour, day after day”. To me she is saying that television doesn’t really satisfy the addict’s needs that is why they continue to watch. Marie also uses logos in one of her paragraphs by saying “They are living in a holding pattern, as it were, passing up the activities that lead to growth or development or a sense of accomplishment”. By this statement, I feel Marie is saying that by watching TV this will make addicts procrastinate on getting things that they need to get done finished and that they can’t learn anything and grow from experiences in life if they are glued to the
“The unrelenting consumerist bias of television distorts our view of reality and social priorities, leaving us entertainment rich and knowledge poor” (Elgin 104). These commercials leave the viewer with a distorted perception of reality; leading one to believe that overconsumption of personal goods is the norm in society. This belief of continuous spending is the flawed outlook on life, but is actually becoming the norm because society is not given another option. “By excluding visions of more sustainable ways of living and consuming, the mass media perpetuate the status quo while simultaneously crippling society’s capacity for envisioning more promising alternatives”
Children can also get mental problems because of spanking such as killing themselves. Children start to think about why they were born and asking themselves if they should live in a world where they just get spanked all the time. Therefore, parents who spank their children should change their minds about spanking their children. Spanking children is not a good way to discipline them because children will have bad relationships with parents and other people. For example, children who are usually spanked by their parents have problems with them because of spanking, so children will become more aggressive with other people who are around them.
Bullying destroys any chance for a child to make it or even have the courage to try to make it. When you have to fight your own inner demons as well as the ones outside, your likelihood of surviving has dropped. When a woman, whose children think her the very essence of beauty, cannot like her own reflection despite how beautiful her soul is, there is a problem. When a little boy is made fun of for something as simple as pork chops, there is a problem. When an adult cannot look someone in the eye, there is a problem.
If the parents cannot control what there kids watch then don’t let them watch television when they are not there. The only merit I can think of is that if you watch something violent then it scares the hell out of you and you really don’t want to do what scared the hell out of you. Formulate a
Lisa, their smart daughter, is unpopular at school. Many people in the US and in many other countries of the world are audiences of these kind of television programs that rampantly depict untrue yet popular stereotypes. People begin to have perceived views and even prejudices due to these depicted stereotypes. Stereotypes created by the media take away our individuality and instead, provides us with a common identity. When this happens, there is an erosion of our personal uniqueness.
Is it because they look different? Yes, people discriminate against each other because they’re different to the majority of the group. One of the ways people discriminate against people is by criticizing them because of their physical features. Features such as height, weight, skin colour etc. Usually adults would be mature mocking others is wrong, but kids at school fail to ‘put themselves in others shoe’ and they’ll say things like: “We don’t want to play with you, fat boy Joe.” “Whoa!
Learning about new things should be enjoyable when instead, it is doing the exact opposite and making children stress over it and hate the idea of it. Along with all of this stress, there comes even more negative effects on the average student. Having to deal with great amounts of stress, some students don’t know how to cope with it which results in their physical health deteriorating. Researchers have found that the increased levels of stress has led to “sleep deprivation and other health issues.” Lastly, no child or teenager should be forced to give up things that they
First, they are a great waste of time says Dr. Spock. At their worst, they promote violent responses from children. The main argument about video games is that they take away from children reading. Then the author presents the reasons that reading is so good for people. However, the author then says that a lot of the criticism about video games is because they are being judged by old standards by people who believe reading is the main way for children to learn skills.
