  6. 6. MUNNI RAY AND KANA RAM JAT 2010, said media has a disturbing potential to negatively affect many aspects of children’s healthy development, including weight status, sexual initiation, aggressive feelings and beliefs, consumerism and social isolation. Media also has potential for positive effects on child health. We need to find ways to optimize the role of media in our society, taking advantage of their positive attributes and minimizing their negative ones. The ultimate goal is to reach youth with positive messaging. Embracing media rather than trying to counteract it promises to be an effective tool in shaping the behaviour of children and adolescents.
  7. 7. We used questionnaire in order to collect data for our research. Questionnaire consist 20 questions and is in closed end form. Our sample size is of 35. For data collection we used Punjab College.

  9. 9.  After collecting data and analyzing it we find out that somehow it is true that media impacts negatively on children & adolescents. It changes their eating habits. Influence them to imitate what they see onTV.
  10. 10.  As far as the limitation of our study is concerned our questionnaire was being filled in college, the respondents age is normally the same their education level is also the same we can’t have different opinion from different people of different field.
  11. 11.  As media is negatively impacting the children it is our recommendation to ask the government to ban such programs which contain harmful content which can affects the metal state of the children. On parts of parents we will recommend that have an eye on your child when they are watchingTV and try to skip those channels which you think contains negative content.Try to make your child being involved in physical activities.
