In 1950, only 9% of U.S. households owned a television. Today 99% of households have at least one TV and 56% of 13 to 17 years olds have a television in their bedrooms. Most people with cable or satellite TV have access to over 200 channels. A recent survey showed that children aged from 2 to 17 watched television for an average of 25 hours per week. One in five watched more than 35 hours of TV each week. By the age of 18, the average American teenager spends more time watching television than learning in the classroom. Children who watch too much TV do not do other important activities such as reading, talking with other people and getting
exercise. As a result, experts believe that children who watch a lot of TV are fatter, less healthy and have a poorer diet. American TV is full of adverts. Most channels have a commercial break every five or six minutes. By the time he or she is eighteen the average American child has sat through 350,000 adverts. Many of these adverts are for junk food and fizzy drinks and these encourage a poor diet. There is also a lot of violence on American TV. One study estimated that children watched 8,000 murders before they left primary school. Some studies suggest that there is a link between the violence children watch on TV and
violence in later life. Is this why violence is a problem in many American schools? What do you think?
