Pros and Cons of Media

Pros and Cons of Media

It has been recently revealed that the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) have talked about the topic ‘The impact of media on vulnerable children and adolescents’. The topic consists of both pros and cons of media.

Dr. Maria Tomasic, who is RANZCP President, said that it is very important that parents should understand that media is an important tool of information for children. Not only it educates, but it also provides support on various issues. Media cannot be integrated under one or two factors as it is quite a diverse field and one of its major branches is social media.

When one hears the word social media, they tend to take it negatively. However, such is not the truth as social media has its own positives and negatives. One of its main advantages is that it gives an opportunity to children to expand their social network.

One of the main things to increase confidence is to talk with new people and socialize with them. Not only this, there is nothing in this world which cannot be known through internet.

“There are health benefits from the media with the internet providing information about health problems of relevance to young people such as stress, anxiety, depression and physical disorders. There are also effective online interventions for a number of mental health problems”, said Maria.

Maria said that like a coin has two sides like that media also has its negative points. One of the main negative uses of internet is its excessive usage. It has been found that excessive usage of internet can make children suffer from net addiction, cyber bullying and aggression.

The children who spend maximum time while surfing on the internet can become quite impulsive. Therefore, it is very important that children should use internet within limits.
