Introduction

English work - 26/04/05 Question: Argue for or against whether it is a good idea for parents to allow their children to have a T.V in their bedrooms Ideas: They won't work - isolation - stay up late -watch the wrong films - violence - antisocial - obesity - they risk dangerous - strain eyes - they get ideas off nasty programs - it is noisy - especially at night - they may see nothing else in life. T.V. Kills!!! ...Relationships. And you thought there was little harm in buying them that little 14" screen last Christmas. Of course they'd start watching it now and again, perhaps watching some violent action thriller, ghastly murderous films, every night. ...read more.

Middle

A separate world. You scream and screech, rant and rave, just to gain their attention for a meal. Your thump the door, of the obsession nothing can rid of. Antisocial: Brainwashed by the repetitive soaps and cartoons played again, and again and again, until your heart breaks. They become lazy. Obese. No interest in sport, park, relatives. 'I wanna watch T.V.' they groan. Tired. They stay up all night watching pornography, followed promptly by a tribute to rape and child abuse. These kids grow and become adults one day too, and they need to know wrong from right. Is this material helping that? Then, the door creaks, the bolt slams open. The monster has now detached itself from its master and embarks to the dining room. ...read more.

Conclusion

Their wittiness has disappeared. They, no longer speak to you because their conscience is totally fixed to watching T.V. they've had no friend round for months. There's little wonder. Needless to day, when you finally pierce the monsters door to give them their xmas present, naturally while watching T.V., they're woken by the sight of a long large chunk of steel. It sways. Smash. Sparkle. Finished? One swing is never enough. Oh! If only you kept it downstairs, things would be so, so different - you wouldn't have cracked, become isolated, fixed merely on the streaks of light that flicker tortuously for the rest of your life. In your prison cell. T.V. Kills.....when its in the wrong place. Don't let it be yours. By Charles Macgilchrist 11C Of St. Benedicts RC School Derby Charlie Macgilchrist 11C ...read more.
