Sample Essay on The Negative Effects of Television
Example of Argumentative essay, Sample Paper 
Television has become a “member” of almost every single family on our planet. And not just an ordinary member, but a very important one, because the time spent next to itexceeds the amount of time spent together with any other family member. You do nothave to apply any efforts to talk or listen to complaints while “communicating” with it.You do not have to play with your little son after a hard working day. You are SO tired!Can anybody respect that?You can simply turn the TV on and everything is done: kids are quiet, your wife is notcomplaining and you feel absolutely happy. It is so simple that it has become an integralpart of the culture of every family. It is the only time, when a person can forget about allthe family troubles and the failures of the day. The sofa opposite the TV set has becomethe place of “reconciliation and spiritual unity” of the family. And instead of playingtogether and having emotional talks people prefer to watch an episode from a thriller. Itis senseless to deny the all-embracing negative effect the existence of television hasbrought to our lives. But to make our point of view ultimately convincing we willintroduce to your attention certain facts that people do not want to accept and often tryto justify. The base of the tomorrow’s society – are children today. And on the way theydevelop depends how are world is going to look like tomorrow.

Therefore children learn moralprinciples from the television, where by the age of 16 they observe 100,000 violent actsand 33,000 murders.The models of life interactions given in the television are very exaggerated and garbled.Children learn that they can gain what they want through being stronger andsubordinating other people that they can become popular through killing and that even if you are a “good” guy killing is o.k. Statistics have proved that the growth of time spentnext to the TV-set scales up the development of aggression. Many years before theexamples of imitation for children were their own parents; now these examples comefrom hit-thrillers and violent films where the personages imitated are cruel, impartial andoften purely negative personages. Nowadays, resulting this phenomenon, childreninstead of playing leap-and–frog on the open air pretend to be “terminators” and runaround “killing” each other. The fact of child’s identification with a “negative” destructiveimage has a vital impact on the development of his or her personality. Violencebecomes an ordinary way of interaction, alongside with anger. Early exposure to sexualscenes may lead to early sexual contacts, with destroy the healthy development of achild. Young people are pressured by such an amount of sexual scenes and thesescenes normalize casual sexual encounters. They do not to evaluate what they see –
