Using Television to Benefit Children!

This is a fun ad from 1954! While modern life and technology have amazing benefits, old times have their own important messages.

Here’s the gist of an ad for a TV from an old newspaper:

  • Homework gets done faster because a TV show is waiting as a reward.
  • Behavior is improved because a quiet activity, which is to be used sparingly, is available to settle down children.
  • The family becomes more united because they have special TV shows that they can all enjoy together.

Contrast these old situations with the changes that new technology has brought us today. Very interesting.
