The Impact of Media: Effects of Television on Children Student’s name Institutional Affiliation The Impact of Media: Effects of Television on Children Introduction The development of children has been deemed to be a significant issue especially among policymakers in the country. Several policies have been created and implemented through the years to ensure the welfare and well-being of children are apparent (Mahesh Guru Nabi & Raslana 2013).

Young people have a higher tendency of adopting actual behaviors and norms they witness on televisions and the Internet. It is essential to have an understanding of the practical effects of media on children by exploring previous and current literature on the matter and Huesmann L. R. (2007).
