Most parents I know worry about how much television their children are watching but I see very little being done about actually cutting down their childrens television time The average child watches three to four hours of T V a day and another two and a half hours more on the television watching movies or playing video games for a total of six and a half hours of television a day According to the American Academy of Pediatrics a little more than half of our children have a T V in their bedrooms and three- quarters of children eat their dinner in front of the television All of this television is taking time away from our childrens lives which could be replaced with more crucial and beneficial activities such as reading exercising and playing with friends Instead our children are seeing the wrong messages from the programs they are watching including sex violence drugs racism war bad language and even suicide that sometimes carry into their every- day lives Our children are seeing all these adult images before they should There are many different avenues in television programming that demonstrates violence to our children As a child I remember how I feared the killer patrolling the streets with his razor-sharp knife or fingers waiting to pierce my body I would have never had this fear without the blood and gore of horror films that were shown on late- night television These movies almost always showed a weak plot based on violent actions and in the end there never showed the perpetrator as being punished leading some children to believe that violence can be accomplished without a consequence Another passageway to violence is through what has been called professional wrestling The WWF is a terrible way that instills violence into our children This semi- reality show has turned our children into body- slamming idiots having no understanding that these actions they see on television do hurt
