WHETHER THE TYPE OF MEDIA AS SEEN ON TV, OR WHETHER IT WAS A TYPE OF A SOCIAL MEDIA, THE EFFECT IS EQUAL. THE AMOUNT OF INFLUENCE MEDIA HAS OVER THE INDIVIDUAL IS SO GREAT, THAT IT INFLUENCES THE VIEWERS POSITIVELY, AND NEGATIVELY, BUT THE AMOUNT OF NEGATIVITY IS HIGHER THAN ITS POSITIVE SIDE.
media and its popularity today!

" THE MEDIA'S THE MOST POWERFUL ENTITY ON EARTH. THEY HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE THE INNOCENT GUILTY, AND MAKE THE GUILTY INNOCENT, AND THATS POWER. BECAUSE THEY CONTROL THE MINDS OF THE MASSES.
OBESITY IN KIDS IN RELATION TO SOCIAL MEDIA
1. When thinking of the association between obesity and technology, they are often rather negative.
2. Technology has the ability to be one of the greatest enemies when it comes to a child's health.
3. An increase in exposure to technology goes hand in hand with a decline in physical activity which plays a major role in the rising rates of obesity. As children spend more time sitting in front of the TV or computer or social media, they spend less time outside burning off calories. Over time, combined with an increase in snacking, this can lead to significant weight gain.
4. Today’s children, ages 8 to 18 spend more time (44.5 hours per week) with media than any other activity in their lives except sleeping. Research has found strong associations between increases in advertising for non-nutritious foods and rates of childhood obesity.
Obesity in kids in relation to social media
1.The more a child uses media the more he is likely to be overweight not by the obvious reason of being seated but researches shows that it is actually the exposure to food advertisements they believe is the origin of the problem.
2.Children’s programming are for low-nutrient foods that are high in fat, sodium and added sugars. This food marketing largely influences a child’s food preferences with as little as a single commercial exposure and to strengthen with repeated exposures and, ultimately, influence their health
3.Product preference has been shown to occur with as little as a single commercial exposure and to strengthen with repeated exposures
VIOLENCE IN CHILDREN
MEIDA IS A BIG INFLUENCE ON CHILDREN, SINCE IT GIVES THEM THE IDEA TO MIMICK WHATS ON TV IF NOT GUIDED BY THE PARENTS. THE IDEA OF DEVELOPMENT OF VIOLENCE IN CHILDREN DUE TO MEDIA IS SOMETHING THE PARENTS MUST TAKE CARE OF, ESPECIALLY THE VIDEO GAMES CONTENT, OR THE MOVIES THE KIDS TEND TO WATCH. A REPORT CAME OUT IN 1982 BY THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF MENTAL HEALTH STATING THE MAJOR EFFECTS:
Children may become less sensitive to the pain and suffering of others.
Children may be more fearful of the world around them.
Children may be more likely to behave in aggressive or harmful ways toward others.
Video Game Violence
Research by psychologists L. Rowell Huesmann, Leonard Eron and others starting in the 1980s found that children who watched many hours of violence on television when they were in elementary school tended to show higher levels of aggressive behavior when they became teenagers. By observing these participants into adulthood, Huesmann and Eron found that the ones who'd watched a lot of TV violence when they were 8 years old were more likely to be arrested and prosecuted for criminal acts as adults.
REASONS TO REGULATE SOCIAL MEDIA
Why do we need to set limits for children?
1.They will have more interactions with other family members and friends which will develop their social skills
2. They will be able to be active in so many daily activities which will develop their cognitive behaviors.
3.They will have enough sleep and studying time.
How many hours can your child be on screen?
As screens nowadays are involved in learning and education, we will discover the suggested time spent on media according to American Academy of Pediatrics
• children under 18 months should avoid screen time, other than video-chatting.
• children aged 18 months to 2 years can watch or use high-quality programs or apps if adults watch or play with them to help them understand what they’re seeing.
• children aged 2-5 years should have no more than one hour a day of screen time with adults watching or playing with them
• children aged 6 years and older should have consistent limits on the time they spend on electronic media and the types of media they use
Guidelines for managing social media consumption
Know your kids, know your values!
If your child complains that all his friends are watching a particular TV show that contains a lot of sex and or violence, explain what your values are and why you are sticking to them.
Use technology to limit time on media.
Even if you've talked to your kids about screen time limits it’s still really tough to manage what they do when you’re not there. Parental control supports your efforts to keep your kids’ internet experiences safe. Use these tools and software not as a spying method BUT as an honest and open partnership with your kids.
Keep media out of bedrooms!
It’s much easier to exercise control when your child is within view. So that means keeping video games, the TV and the computer in a common area where you can keep an eye on things
Have regular time to watch movies and programs together
. Use this as an opportunity to watch and discuss special moments and teachable for values and attitudes.
Set family roles and stick to them.
You could say, for example, that watching TV is OK from 7 to 9 p.m. or after the homework is done or only on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Consistency through the years is also important.
Be conscious of age-appropriateness.
Be aware that although several companies are marketing videos for babies and toddlers, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no television for children under the age of 2. And a PG-13 rating on a movie doesn’t necessarily mean that all 13-year-old are ready to see it or that younger children shouldn’t see it. It’s a guideline and it’s up to you to decide.
