Impact of visual media in young generation

  1. 1. Impact of Visual Media in Young GenerationIn the course of our life we meet every day the visual media: we watch television, read magazine, surfon internet, play computer games and see smaller or bigger posters everywhere in the city whichadvertising newer, better and practical produces. However these situations have become so natural,that we normally don’t realize how they impress us. But some of what they teach may not we wantchildren to learn. Because of its influence on us, we tend to forget all about the next questions: what dowe know about the effects of visual media?The impact of visual media varies from person to person. But the addiction of similar kind is visible in theyoung ones. The content shown in the visual media are often not advisable for children. The excessshowcase of violence, sexual vulgarity, sensationalized content etc make children more aggressive andthey tend to react to such content. Sometimes you can see the impact of media right away, such aswhen your child watches superhero fighting, the same time kid try to imitate it without knowing the factthat the original video is made with all safety measures. There were many case studies from India wherechildren tried to imitate and ended up in disaster.Not only the aggressive behavior but sexual crimes increased radically pointing the unhealthyatmosphere prevailing in our country. Young children are also committing such unforgivable crimeswhich are a byproduct of the media. If we keep the mental influence apart, we can see that it is evenruining all other activities of children. Children are showing less enthusiasm towards education andstarted scoring very less. The habit of reading books has reduced in a dangerous level. They tend toignore physical activities by sitting in front of the media and are becoming overweight and unhealthy.Parents should not get worried that there is no solution to such problems. You can sit with your childrenwhile they are watching TV. More over we can persuade them to watch better quality content so thatthey can get benefited. One other possible way is to put limits to the time duration for watching TV. Restof the time has to be used for fruitful things. Schools can also play this vital role especially boardingschools. Children can be molded in a good manner here and very fortunately there many boardingschools in India who fulfill this function.For example schools like biggest international school in Vizag is one of the best place where they takecare of the children and develop their analytical skills to deal with the issues like over influence of visualmedia. Children cannot be stopped from enjoying visual media. But only thing possible is we can do is tosensor the content which kids are exposed to.
