This is where watching too much TV can take you

When we were young and mum and dad wanted to go out for a dinner date, they always sat us kids in front of the television and disappeared to return to find us still in front of the television, half awake but straining ourselves to watch the idiot box.

Years later, I am presuming that they probably thought that we would ultimately sleep due to fatigue but that was far from the truth. With two kids, I sometimes wonder how our parents actually thought that it was a better idea.

I am a parent who hates to see my children in front of the box for more than an hour every day. In fact, if I had the liberty, I would have thrown that idiot box into the trash without a second thought!

Apparently, a few years ago when I was cleaning my mother’s house and we had some time to ourselves, we sat down for tea and a light chat, I asked her what made her prop us in the living room for hours in front of the television. This is what she had to say: “Those days, it was not reliable to have children all by themselves in the house since the crime rate in the neighborhood was quite high.”

Apparently, my parents could not afford a baby sitter too often and they thought that the noise of the television from the house would discourage trespassers tricking them into thinking that there were adults in the house who were watching television and that the kids were not left alone and unsupervised.

I was so glad that I asked her and found this out! Otherwise, I would have this misgiving against them for a long time! So, if it was for our safety, it is totally understandable and forgivable! But today, if I were to tell you that watching television is not only bad for your children but equally bad for you and me; it is a fact that holds as much truth today as yesterday!

Here is my take of why sitting too long in front of the idiot box can also turn you into one:

  • Your love for commercials:

    If someone tells you that sitting too long in front of the set has made you add a few inches there at the wrong spots, wake up immediately to the fact. The stark reality my friend is that not only has the sitting made you fat but also the fact that you are watching big fat advertising campaigns that promote binge eating or advocate love for eating. Even though it may not make you reach out for an unhealthy snack immediately, it will definitely impact your choice subconsciously. Watch out the next time that you want to hit a Mc Donald’s instead of entering a salad bar!

  • Your medical portfolio:

    You may probably be spending an average of only two or three hours in front of the television and you must be thinking that it is fine since it is in moderation. Well, the answer is a yes and a no. A lot of people are so used to binge watching television shows that can make them forget time. Rest of them can cut on their healthy habits like walking or hitting the gym in order to sit in that recliner and watch away to glory. What you do not realize actually is that you are giving the doctors in your country more reasons to rejoice! Wake up and take stock of your health!

  • You don’t want to damage your relationship, right?

    Watching television in favour of not talking or interacting enough with your partner or spouse can take a toll on your relationship with time. This happens inspite of the fact that you and your partner is watching television together.

    Having a television set in the bedroom is a no-no since it has the ability to eat up a lot of We-time that is important when you want to take your relationship to the next level!

  • Do your kids a favor please!

    Children are the worst affected. Aggression, violence and explicit content can ruin their thinking and precociously teach them things before it is actually the time for them to know. Television is believed to be the root cause of the the increase in the cases of bullying and sex crimes such as molesting and raping in preteens and teens.

  • Of insomnia:

    Too much of television viewing can interfere with the sleep patterns and cause havoc in the hormonal cycle of the individual. This is most prominent in the growing up years and therefore it is imperative that parents strictly have a schedule for allowing television viewing.
