It is said that watching TV is a waste of time for children. To what extent, do you agree or disagree?

In recent years, spending
time
watching
TV
becomes a part of the daily routine almost of each human, and kids aren't an exception to
this
trend. It is often suggested that spending
time
like
this
is absolutely useless for children. But I strongly disagree with
this
point of view, as I believe that in the long run, it helps them to learn the human life.
First
of all, it goes without saying that not all of
TV
-programs are well made when some of them
such
as talk shows about relationships don't make any sense.
However
, a plethora of series liked by children and teenagers is
also
streamed on
TV
. Especially series helps people to collect some experience on things that are never happened to them before. Unless they couldn't go through the shown situation by themselves, they can see some consequences come out, which helps them to learn the life and give them a chance to improve their behaviour patterns.
For instance
, if someone as a kid would see in
TV
series that his most liked character has a car accident because he drove too fast, he will remember it forever and never will do the same.
Moreover
, generally, it is very important to give rest the own brains after work or school. Even if you would watch something useless, it is a perfect way to relax. I know, how good
this
method of relaxation works from my own example, as it was practised in my school every day in the
last
lesson before we went home to do homework. On the one hand, the most of parents were absolutely angry about
this
obligatory relaxation, but
on the other hand
, they were astonished by our perfect marks. In conclusion,
although
spending
time
on
TV
has some drawbacks, it is clear, that it could bring a huge contribution to kids' lives. I would argue, that the most important is to find a balance between losing the whole free
time
and the positive effect of
TV
.
