The value of the study undertaken by Margaret and Andrea (2008) has been to adopt a different research direction to the traditional approach in the literature, by exploring what advertising means to children, as opposed to the long-established tradition of asking “What does advertising do to children?” The children in the study very much enjoyed advertising, they frequently found it entertaining and they would also use it for their non-commercial information.Children between the age of 5 to 14 enjoy watching animations and cartoon characters whereas children between the age of 15 to 20 like the catchy music element in the ads.It is a fact that children spend their spare time watching TV.66% of the parents disagreed to the fact that their...

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires that V-chips in new televisions recognize the TV Parental Guidelines and the age group rating system and block those programs that don’t adhere to these standards (How TV affects your child, n.d. p.4).I would say limit the time for television and other media accordingly and use the television and other media to your advantage as there are many things that we can learn from watching TV.With no supervision nearby, children may end up watching shows with violence, sex, and bad language.The first disadvantage is that many people do not realise how much time they spend watching television if you spend one hour a day watching television.Parents should limit the number of hours their children...

This is just proving the point that watching TV does not make you any smarter, and not watching TV does not make you any dumber.Steven Johnson uses logos when he starts stating facts about TV shows and lets the audience know full details about it.Dana Stevens just used an overall strong use of all three ethos, pathos, and logos to prove her argument that TV does not make you smarter.Stevens also says at a point “just turn the set off… and see if you get any dumber.”(Stevens, 2012, p. 298) Turning off the TV for a few days will not make you become dumber.“From the vantage point of someone who watches a hell of a lot of TV (but still far less than the average American), the medium seems neither like a brain-liquefying poison nor a salutary...

So many TV shows are also very good for teens to watch and also have messages in them that really do get across than someone shouting at them.Many TV shows now are more or less aimed at teens and adults and I agree there are not many shows for children but I wouldn’t say TV is bad by all means.Older students can also benefit by watching shows on national geographic and the history channel.I think more shows need to be aimed at children not just 17 right up to 40, but I can think of a few shows that are okay for young children there just isn’t enough of them.It may be argued that it can be watched during our leisure but students spend all their free time watching television instead of dividing it and doing more profitable stuff.
