My school is trying to get everyone and there family to participate in a TV free week. Well, I for one am against. Everyone seems to want to paint out the negatives in TV rather than the positives. And yes there are positives to TV such as stress relief, helpful programs, and the news.
First, of all stress relief is one good thing about TV. Believe it or not some people just seem to like to kickback and watch some cartons after school or a long day at work? Stress is supposed to be one of the worst things to your body. But it also puts people in bad mood which isn’t a good environment to be around. If just chilling out can bring you down and relieve stress, I say go for it.
My next, reason why I don’t agree with the TV free weeks is because there are plenty of helpful programs on TV. If you’re having problems in your relationship or at home or something, you can turn on the channel to Dr. Phil or Oprah to get advice on how to solve that problem. There are also many educational programs like history channel that we can benefit from.
My final reason that I don’t support the TV week is because of the news. The news is a very useful tool that many Americans use everyday. It would be a shame if someone plan out huge day and when it finally gets there it ends up raining. What if
In conclusion I don’t support the TV free week because of stress, helpful programs, and the news. Well how can you get some of the positives about TV, you decide whether you want to be apart of the TV free week.
