Some people think it’s all bad for children to watch TV, others believe watching TV can bring positive effects on children when they grow up. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
背景句：Watching TV has become one of young children’s favourite leisure activities.
观点讨论：Some people believe certain TV programmes influence children positively, while others think that watching TV is barely beneficial at all for children’s development.
平行列举 1：People who oppose the idea of allowing children to watch TV may agree that excessive screen time is highly harmful to the young ones’ eyesight. Since they lack self-control to limit how long to spend watching TV, an increasing number of children have suffered from various visual problems.
平行列举 2： Another reason for the objection is that children are not capable of selecting the content on TV programs. Movies and shows containing violence and pornography may be broadcasted when children are around. Without the ability to filter sensitive or unhealthy content, they might be misled unconsciously by whatever is on the screen.
主题句：The other opinion is that watching TV has positive effects on children.
平行列举 1：Firstly, programmes made for educational purposes, such as documentaries on wildlife, geography, astronomy, culture and history, enable children to learn about a variety of subjects, explore the world and develop their intelligence.
平行列举 2：Moreover, for children, watching TV with parents is a significant moment of family life. Spending time with family members while watching entertaining shows together is an effective way to share common interest and enhance emotional connection.
In my perspective, watching TV programmes selectively has both entertaining and educational effects on children’s development. Different categories of TV shows are targeted at audience from different age groups, but neither TV or TV programmes was made to negatively affect children. What parents should keep in mind is to set up the filter and help children cautiously choose what to watch and learn.
