3. Critical thinking/ analysis
Yes, I found the child’s watching television for a long time, but I never found such a child who becomes dull by just watching TV. In spite of this, I found the child’s being more creative & thinking about the show watching educational programs & other creative programs which helps them in their study. And, I have the question that, are all stations of TVs only shows custom & serials? Cannot they show educational programs?
I knew the demerits of watching TV by children. I knew that they become dull if they watched TV for a long time. And, I become happy by knowing the ways to keep busy our children without let them watching TV. So, I will control them to watch it. I will tell them interesting stories instead of giving them the time to watch it. I will give books on their birthdays & other occasions. And, I will develop a very educational environment in my society.
