Now read the passage very carefully. Try to grasp both the central idea and the details. Start reading the text to yourselves.
Television and Children
Television (TV) has its good side. It can be entertaining and educational, and can open up new worlds for kids, giving them a chance to travel the globe, learn about different cultures. Shows with a pro-social message can have a positive effect on kids' behavior; programmes with positive role models can influence viewers to make positive lifestyle changes. However, the reverse can also be true: kids are likely to learn things from TV that parents don't want them to learn. TV can affect kids' health, behavior and family life in negative ways.
It's worthwhile for parents to think about what role they want TV to play in their family. Spending time watching TV can take time away from healthy activities like active play outside with friends, eating dinner together as a family, or reading. TV time also takes away from participating in sports, music, art or other activities that require practice to become skillful.
TV viewing starts earlier than other forms of media—often beginning before age two. We don't know yet what effect TV-viewing by babies may have on their development. We do know that time spent watching TV replaces time spent interacting with caregivers and other children.
TV viewing among kids is at an eight-year high. On average, children ages 2-5 spend 32 hours a week in front of a TV. Kids ages 6-11 spend about 28 hours a week in front of the TV. 71% of 8- to 18-year-olds have a TV in their bedroom; 37% have cable/satellite TV. Media technology now offers more ways to access TV content, such as on the Internet, mobiles and iPods. Kids with a TV in their bedroom spend an average of almost 1.5 hours more per day watching TV than kids without a TV in the bedroom. Kids who spend more time watching TV (both with and without parents) spend less time interacting with family members. Excessive TV viewing can contribute to poor grades, sleep problems, behavior problems, obesity, and risky behavior. Most children’s programmes does not teach what parents say they want their children to learn; many shows are filled with stereotypes, violent solutions to problems, and mean behavior.
Advertisers target kids, and on average, children see tens of thousands of TV commercials each year. This includes many ads for unhealthy snack foods and drinks. Children and youth see about 2,000 beer and wine ads on TV each year. Kids see favourite characters smoking, drinking, and involved in sexual situations and other risky behaviors in the shows and movies they watch on TV.
Now I want you to do some tasks on the passage you’ve just read and see how much you have understood.

I’m afraid I’m not of the same opinion…
I’m sorry, but I can’t agree with you.
To sum up then, most of you consider that television have advantages and disadvantages. I am sure that television is doing a lot of good because it is invaluable for the information it provides; it has vast educational opportunities; it makes people argue and discuss, think more; it is one of the mighty means of forming people’s character and outlook.
But it occupies all our spare time. We rush home to be in time for this or that programme. The violence on TV creates violence in real life, television is bad for people’s health, and it is like a drug. And I think that you use and will use television for your best benefit and enrichment.
