TV oh TV!
The most important thing we've learned,
So far as childen are concerned.
Is never, NEVER, NEVER let
Them near you TV set....
IT ROTS THE SENSE IN THE HEAD!
IT KILLS IMAGINATION DEAD!
IT CLOGS AND CLUTTERS UP THE MIND!
IT MAKES A CHILD SO DULL AND BLIND!
HE CAN NO LONGER UNDERSTAND
A FANTASY, A FAIRYLAND!
HIS BRAIN BECOMES AS SOFT AS CHEESE!
HIS POWERS OF THINKING RUST AND FREEZE!
HE CANNOT THINK--HE ONLY SEES!
"All right!'ou'll cry. 'All right!' youll say,
'But if we take the set away,
What shall we do to entartain
Our darling children? Please explain!
Well answer this by asking you,
'What used the darling ones to do?
'How used they keep themselves contented
Before this monster was invented?'
"Have you forgotten, dont you know?
Well say it very LOUD....AND sssslllloooowwww.....
I talked about this at the conference! Limit TV... its a BAD-BAD one way interaction.....
The kids cant reply back..the TV imagines FOR them.....if you want to let them watch TV,
watch it WITH them, so they can TALK about the show WITH you...
Children who watch too much TV have what they call 'the 2 minute mind'
Because 'pictures' on the screen changes every 2 second...they have problem then to concentrate...
When they read they're mind imagine faaaaarrrr away..as long as they like....THe TV imagine FOR them!!! Bad....Cartoon network in my house is LOCKED!!! only limited amount of TV...bila kecemasan sahaja....
budak yang banyak tengok TV ada masalah membaca...sebab tak boleh concentrate...akibat the two minute mind effect....THAT GOES FOR PS 2,3 and uneducational games too....limit it parents....
best to not even introduce it!
KIDS need to let the energy out DAILY...not weekly or 'bila parents free'..... TV builds all the energy inside them, and they cant let it out...tu pasal bila tutup TV, diorang lompat2, tak leh duduk diam!!!!
TV IS BAD! fullstop! In US there is a strng warning to bann TV for children under 2...and that includes all that MOZART crap that has NO EVIDANCE it increases a childs intelligence...
But more EDUCATIONAL toys and plan activitiesfor hem! NO TV PLEASE!!! :)
