Television can be called one of the most influential sociological forces, because “the audience becomes so emotionally attached to the figures shown on TV that they count themselves as fans following celebrities’ lives, desiring the products celebrities endorse, and otherwise seeking to emulate them or live vicariously through them.” (Ferrante, 2008) Children especially, become addicted to the images shown on television, because they have any understanding and knowledge about programs and visuals that are shown. They turn out to be used to it, because of inability to properly evaluate the given information. Television is a very attractive source of information no matter it is useful or not, it has a feature to grab both children, adults’ attention. Mostly, a television monitor becomes one of the best friends for children to whom they can spend all the time without doing anything else. Of course, not only friendship and an attractive way to spend a time becomes a reason for children to watch television, but it is also beneficial as a source to get to know life and explore the world of adults. That is one of the mistakes adults make by letting their children to watch TV, they do not realize that their child from 6 to 7 years old will not be able to understand and distinguish what is right and what is wrong shown on this plane screen.
