READING STORY BOOK IS BETTER FOR CHILDREN THAN WATCHING TELEVISION OR PLAYING COMPUTER GAMES. DO YOU AGREE OR DISAGREE?
Dozens of people utilize computer games and TV programs to lead kids, regarding these methods as kinds of efficient education. However, the effect shown is for less than giving children story books to read. Why reading story books is better for children than watching TV or playing computer games? There may be several reasons.
One reason why children need to read story books but not to watch television is for protecting their eyesight. If children have stared at the TV screen for a long time, it may make their eyes feel tired, and their eyesight may get worse. However, reading story books means that parents do not need to worry about how much influence radiation will be brought to their children.
Another reason parents should encourage their children to read more story books is to avoid violent or erotic content from television and computer games. There are lots of uncontrollable factors which may make children receive information that is not beneficial to their growth and health. But story books, which are different from TV programs and computer games, are much safer for the reason that they do not have any content undue as long as parents check the books before they are given to children.
Finally, allowing children to read story books is also training their reading ability at the same time. It would be really favorable for the reason that it makes children who reads them receive information quicker than those kids who do not. They will study hard with more passion without too much pressure.
According to all the reasons above, to read story books is advantageous to children. Although children gain a brief good time from TV programs and computer games, however, what they learn from story books will be invaluable to their whole life. In the end, I hope children can cultivate their own interests from story books.
