if your mother doesn't like you to watch any television. your father thinks you should be allowed to watch as much television as you like, as long as it's educational. why do they different opinions? what is your opinion? do you agree with one of them, both of them, or neither of them? tell why your ideas would be better for kids your age? and my age is 12 :D

  1. No one has exactly the same experiences and ideas. When I was a child, growing up before television, I learned to entertain myself by reading, listening to the radio, playing games, and playing outside. Today as an old lady, I don't watch TV but entertain myself with Jiskha, reading, doing craft projects, Solitaire, and working word puzzles.

    These two sites presents reasons for or against children watching TV.

    I don't object to children watching TV but strongly believe they should also find many other interests to entertain themselves.
