Children TV programs have been in existence for many years. They get broadcasted during the morning and afternoon hours, but they can still run on during the evening hour. Many families give the children enough time for entertainment. In America, there channels designed for children, and they include cartoon, nickelodeon which gained popularity in 1980s and Disney channels. Nickelodeon has gained from the 1980, and it remains the most popular program of all the three programs (Barrie, 2000).
Concept of interest
The programs are designed for children and they make the children busy and creative. They have images which makes the children gain interest in watching. The program comes at hours when children have relaxed, and they get the lesson in the program.
In many families in America, they have only one TV which they watch in the seating room. Each member of the family has his own specific program which he likes. The children get motivated to watch their programs, and they do not want to miss. When the children do not watch, they end up hating the other family members because of the denial of access to watch the program. There remains a question on which program to watch and conflict exists between families in America over TV programs (Barrie, 2000).
In America, a lot of families do not agree on which program to watch because most of the families have children as well as adults. Conflict exists within family members debating on which programs to watch or which one not to watch. Research shows that 20% conflict comes as a result of children programs in the TV. The children do not want to lessen to their parent or the elder people, because they have a motive that they deny them to watch the programs they like. The research showed that about 40% of American children get spoiled by the children programs and engage in ant social behaviour. They start causing conflicts from the family and in schools. Research shows that children TV programs cause 30% of family conflict (Barrie, 2000).
The programs watched in America include Nektons, teen nick and Disney XD. Family members argue on whether the programs can help or spoil. All the families contacted in the study had a number of arguments over each program. The arguments ranged from time the program haired, hours it takes and influence to the audience. All family members have a different perception over each program (Withey and Abeles, 1980).
The cartoon network program is watched by many children. Many families have a conflict over time they are scheduled. The elder family members do not want to watch them while the children do not want to miss. Family members have a conflict over time the cartoon network programs are scheduled. People watch four hours a day and their so many programs scheduled. In these hours, all individuals get concerned in watching their favorite program, and this makes family members have conflict (Barrie, 2000).
The measures taken to gather the information ranged from interviews and questionnaires. People did not want to give the information concerning the conflict in their families. The information should have been gathered in secrete. Disclosure of family name made the families feel insecure, and this should be avoided in order to improve the measures (Barrie, 2000).
Children should not watch the television without direct supervision by the guardian. All programs watched should have value to the child, but not imposing other attitude. Families should plan their time and set a program guide in order to identify which programs to watch at what time.
