Watching T.V is a good habit if it is purposeful. People watch T.V for different reasons. Some watch T.V for keeping themselves updated about the current political or overall situation of the country and the world as well. While, there are others who watch T.V for information and knowledge about different subjects like documentaries etc etc. Kids love to watch T.V programs related to them e.g cartoons etc. Women Watch T.V for cooking and fashion shows etc. Apart from the above mentioned reasons , there may be other reasons which vary from person to person depending on his or her choice and mood. Whatever the reason of watching T.V may be, but i think there should be a moderation. One has to fix one's hours of the day for watching T.V during a specific time only. Besides numerous advantages of watching T.V, there are different health issue related to it and weakness of eye sight is one of them. So What do you suggest maximum how many hours, we can spend watching T.V during a single day?

We no longer watch or have a TV. Here in Latvia there is even Interactive TV that you can watch online. There is nothing however to watch. While I work on my PC I watch some movies on another PC beside me through YouTube and another movie site. That is about it. If I want to go down memory lane I watch some of my old favorite shows through YouTube just foe the memories.

So it means that you have no worries about watching T.V and you easily watch videos of your choice on internet. But would you say about the people who are addicted to watching T.V?

@studylove that I cannot understand. I could never watch hours of TV anymore. I did enough of that during my childhood and teen years.

@RasmaSandra Yes in childhood we have no worries and enjoy watching our favorite T.V programs and Cartoons but as we grow up and with the passage of time and more responsibilities, we can't do so.

Yes, too much TV-watching does keep one from enjoying more valuable pursuits. I do not watch TV during the day, but I turn it on in the evening, but I read a book at the same time. I think it more important for children and teens to experience the world around them by limiting computer and TV usage.

I agree with you because whenever i cross the limits watching T.V, my routines ar disturbed greatly and i can't even manage to give proper time to my family members. Thus I will urge that we should watch T.V as per needs and interest but for a limited time. How do you control yourself and refrain from watching T.V?

I probably spend too much time watching television, but a lot of that is sports, and sports tend to go on a long time.

Watching sports is very good because it develops a sense of sportsmanship. But we should avoid watching too much t.v as it is not good for eyesight. Do you agree with me?

When I still school, dad restricted us to just watch news. Now we grow up, well we family watch tv together. It depends how the family are, some allows their child to watch tv, some not.
