Viewing extreme violence and abusive content may prompt children to take up similar activities. To avoid the Watching TV is a passive event. Children -- and adults -- remain immobile while viewing the TV. Most viewing experiences are both quiet and non-interactive. All attention is given to the images. Television creates an environment that assaults and overwhelms the child. As children and adults sit in front of a television watching a film of horrors of varying kinds, they remain completely quiet . . .. They will be hooked." Each year children read less and less and watch television increasingly. "The typical child sits in front of the television about four hours a day -- and for children in lower socio-economic families the amount of time consequently spent is even greater. In either case, the child spends more time with TV than he or she spends talking to parents, playing with peers, attending school, or reading books.

Increasing obesity and ruining their eyes are the bad impact of watching TV for children. The first is increasing obesity. Research shows that children who often watch TV will snacking between meals, and eating foods that are advertised on TV and also tend to influence their parents to buy these foods. Besides that sitting for hours in front of the TV screen will make the body do not move and reduce the metabolism, so fat stacked, not burned and eventually lead to

obesity. And the second is ruining their eyes. Television emits blue light that also produced by the sun. But it's blue light is not same as ultraviolet light. Blue light did not make the eyes automatically blink. So, the blue light goes straight into retina without filter anymore. The wavelength of light produced is 400-500nm and hence, potentially triggering the formation of free radicals and injuring the photochemistry in the retina of children's eyes. Ten years later when the children were adults, the damage caused by blue light looks very clear. Retina of the eye is no longer as healthy as childhood so the function ability become decreased. Therefore, watching TV is not so good for children. They must reduce their time to watch TV and parents are the one who can help them to avoid it. So that, the bad impacts of watching TV such as increasing obesity and ruining eyes will not occur in children. Effects on watching tv before going to bed. There is plenty of research on whether or not watching television has an effect on the effectiveness of sleep. However, there is contradicting research, so the results are inconclusive. In order to study the effects of TV on sleep, I watched TV for half an hour before bed for a week straight, and recorded how tired I felt in the morning. I then recorded how I felt in the morning for a week without watching TV before bed. The results seemingly showed that I was less tired on average on the mornings that I didnt watch TV. Still, there are many factors that may have altered how well I slept besides just the television. Therefore, these results are likely not conclusive. Introduction It doesnt come as a surprise that the amount of televisions in bedrooms is raising. Television is the most widespread communication system of modern society (Nag, 2012). Its not uncommon these days to have a television in your bedroom. However, studies show that watching TV before bed can have a negative impact on your sleep (Nag, 2012). It has also been found that televisions result in later bedtimes. The results support the idea that sleeping patterns are influenced by television (Custers, 2012). Contradictorily, conflicting research also shows that reducing media use might NOT be important for sleep hygiene advice to adults (Louzada, 2004). This self observation is an attempt to find out if watching TV has an effect on sleep. Methods The purpose of this study is to see if watching TV for a half an hour before bed has an impact on quality of sleep. For the first week, I will record how tired I feel when waking up without watching TV before bed. For the second week, I will watch TV for half an hour before bed, and then record how tired I feel when waking up.
