Children nowadays spend a great deal of time watching television. However, television cannot replace the book as a learning tool, which is why children are less well‐educated today. To what extent do you agree with this statement?

Many People hold a viewpoint that children are spending more
watching T.V these days, but it can never be equivalent to the books with respect to providing knowledge. I partially agree with
statement and I will be enlightening at the same to support my point of view.
, I believe that nowadays School curriculum are structured in
a way that kids hardly get any free
to do any other thing
studying and extracurricular activities conducted in schools.
For example
– Many schools organize extra classes for self-defence, Drama or Art to name a few after regular classes.
, when children get some free
they choose to play outside with their friends rather than staying indoors and watching TV.
In addition
, since kids these days are so busy with catching up to their schedule, if they watch television in their free
for a limited period, it adds to their knowledge and refresh their mind as well,
parents should always keep an eye on them as to which channel or programs they have subscribed to. Parents or elders should always make sure that programs accessed by children are educational or entertaining in a good way.
, nowadays there are many shows, which are especially directed to children.
For example
- Dora the explorer, while watching
show kids not only get entertained, but they
learn new vocabulary and it
also help
also helps
has also helped
to build their geography knowledge. To recapitulate, Children has got a lot on their plate that they barely get any leisure
to watch Television and whenever they get some, Parents should always be around to make sure that they are not spending so much
in front of a T.V set.
, young generation in the present era is far more well –educated and smarter than the kids in the past as the education system at present developed and enhanced so much. Needless to say, that books are the primary source of education which can never be replaced by an idiot box.
