|Do you agree ot disagree with the following statement? Television has destroyed communication among
Friends and family. Use specific reasons and examples to support your oppinion.
Nowadays, many people spend a lot of time watching TV. Undisputably, the television is an easy way for one person to communicate with other people. But the television has many negative effects on humans mind.
One of the most important effect is that the television confuse the relationships between people in the real life. The television provides attractive programs and films which take over the mind of the viewers. Consequently, the people forget their mundane duties and the viewers start to think about problems of television actors.
I think that the television obsesses human mind. Its very dangerous for relationships in the family and out of it. For example the parents must require information about their children, about the grades in the school and about health condition of the children and etc. If the parents spend their time watching TV they will unable to prevent some social deviations like smoking, drug using, drinking and all forms of aggression. The relationships between family members are really important for children development.
At the contrast, the television has many positive effects. Its provide a lot of information at low price and at the other hand its easy way to learn many languages. I think that in small amount the TV may be usefull. In this case there is no danderous effects, conversely, the television will improve relationship between friends and parents because they will have more common subjects for discussion.
In conclusion, I think that whether the television destroys relationships or not, depend on the amount of time which is spend in watching television.
