Some people think watching TV is bad for children in every way. Others think it is good for developing children as they grow up. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.(2023/03/25)
With the advent of information age, watching TV becomes one of the most common recreational activities for people with no exception for children. While some people are a strident advocate in the claim that TV is an unhealthy tool, I personally believe children can enjoy tangible boons brought by TV programs.
本次task2重复去年12月份的考题；题目内容上很简单，本质就是论述看电视的积极与消极影响，注意题目中限定对象是“children”，论证需要简单结合孩子的特征；同时in every way是属于化的表述；
tangible adj. 实际的；可触及的；
Opponents voice their concern toward the detrimental impacts watching television may exert on children’s physical fitness as well as psychological well-being. With excessive exposure to screens, children not only are likely to be subjected to poor eyesight , but have the inclination to struggle with health problems such as back pain and obesity owing to the lack of adequate exercise. Worse yet, TV programs give easy access to unfavorable information like violence and pornography. Putting young children who are mentally immature into contact with these contents without parental guide will lead to mental problems and even result in juvenile delinquency. Another dark side would be the slide in academic performance brought about by deep addition to the virtual world. Young children, if they are glued to such gadgets, will seldom plough into their studies , hindering them from making progress on learning.
be subjected to v.受到；经受；
have the inclination v.有可能；
struggle with v.与...斗争；
juvenile delinquency n.青少年犯罪；
are glued to v.沉溺于；
plough into v.努力做；投入；
In my personal opinion, however, watching television can be of paramount importance in educating children. With a sea of information on TV, children’s infinite potential for learning can be excavated, sparking their interest and expanding their horizon. For instance, current events keep children up to date about what is happening around the world instantaneously. Animal World is a program where children can be furnished with knowledge concerning animal classification, animal behavior and animal conservation. Additionally, watching TV can have positive and therapeutic effects on unleashing heavy load of pressure in study. To elaborate, children, trapped with bored study and endless exercises, can be refreshed and energetic by viewing certain entertainment activities, be it a cartoon or a typical reality show.

❖ be of paramount importance 有重要作用；
❖ a sea of 海量的；
❖ instantaneously adv.即刻；
❖ be furnished with v.具有；配备有；
❖ therapeutic adj. 有疗效的；

To put it in a nutshell, in spite of being informative and amusing , by no means should we turn a blind eye to the baneful influences TV viewing may exert on children in terms of their physical and mental health. I believe a limit in time and content is of necessity for children to prevent them from being misled by questionable information.
