I think the "One TV-free day" is not a really brilliant idea. As we know, television brings us a lot of advantages in our life. It gives us a lot of information, latest news, tutorials, and also entertaiments. Knowing the latest news is very important. It could be dangerous and fatal if you miss a very important news only in a day. For example your country is under attack, the government asked the citizen to gather in the evacuation center but you didn't go there because you don't get the news, could it get any worse?
And i think, the advantages you can get from television is actually bigger than the disadvantages you could get from it. A housewife could learn new recipes from the tutorials on the cooking show she watched, backpackers could get new destinations from the adventure shows, football fans could get watch their favorite football team,
Kids can study from educative shows like "1st rank" or "are you smarter than a fifth grader", and everyone could come to realization because of the religion shows they watch every morning.
And as a student, watching television also gives me advantages. I think it's one of the variation i can choose for realising stress, for refreshing, and also for relaxation. Because it can help me to watch my favorite artist more often, made me laugh over the jokes the shows made, get tutorials and inspriations, and also know the facts i've never heard before.
When i need to do my homework/ study until late at night, i often turn my tv on to accompany me and avoid me from becoming sleepy. And based by personal experience, i think watching tv together as a family, could make the family closer. Once the tv is turned on in my house, it will gather all my family members to watch the tv together, and takes us away from all of the business all of us had.
That's why actually, tv gives us a lot of advantages as long as people uses it in a normal dose so it won't give you disadvantages more the. Advantages. So, let's just be a smart watcher of television and take the postive things we could get from tv.
