The Facts – The Good Things about Television

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 25-01-2007

Here are some of the good points of television for children:



  • Quality children’s programming can teach your children’s basic academic skills, such as the ABCs, counting, addition, science fundamentals, basic language skills, manners, and even early reading skills

  • Your children can view things they might not otherwise see in daily life: exotic animals, distant lands, musical instruments, historical places, and diverse lifestyles. They can learn about the world beyond her home and neighborhood

  • Your children can learn basic social skills from watching wholesome programming: how to play with other children, how to use good manners

  • Using extraordinarily careful selection and restraint, a little bit of television can provide a parent with much-needed down time, or time to catch up on tasks that need adult-only attention.
