THBT Noontime Shows aren't a bad influence to children, which just people think their sense of humor and entertainment are just too much for these kids to hold or understand.


Why noontime-shows ARE a bad influence:

I believe that this is a debatable topic, it does have it's pros and cons but the thing is,
with the noontime shows, the contents of some of these shows can be inappropriate.

The content of these bad-influenced shows could indeed cause the children to have thoughts relating to the show.
When they think about the unusual actions of the characters [twerking, swearing etc..] they act on it, It's
only natural.

There has been a study in the Philippines that surveyed 4395 students aged somewhere between 10 -18 years old about their opinion of adult-oriented shows. [Children CAN have access to these kinds of shows. Their caregivers also let them watch some of the shows.] The majority of these students watch shows such as The voice, Hunger games or the NBA etc... between 5 PM to 10 PM consistently to quench their thirst for entertainment.

Curiosity and commitment are good to a certain point, but when they watch highly rated shows, movies etc..
children/students tend to stay up late, ignore the environment around them and start to focus on the easier and entertaining things. They can be addicted to watching shows and start slacking in other areas of life that are "boring" or "hard" like homework, or chores. [Sleeping late causes various problems such as loss of concentration, headaches/backaches, weaker vision, gaining weight, bad digestive system and much more.]

In conclusion,
Children aren't supposed to know the cons of these actions, slang's and gestures so they will show
everyone what they saw/learnt thus, causing a domino effect on other children they expose it to.
