    The graph portrays the time spent on the television by the children, from the year 1950 to 2010, that is over six decades. The x-axis holds the years wherein the y-axis holds the hours per day. The blue non linear line displays the connection between the x and the y axis.

    On the whole the time spent on the above mentioned electronic device is show to be steadily rising from the year 1950. There was a minute fall in the graph in between the years of 1960 to 1970, which very well caught up and rose to the maximum by beginning of 1980’s. the mid years if 80’s seems to have had a decent fall which later started to rise by the same decade.

    The fall in time spent by the children on the idiot-box gradually commenced at the 90’s, continued falling even in the new century that is the year 2000. The reduction in time continued till the 2010, but still it was more than thrice the number of hours spent during the 1950’s.

      The graph portrays the time spent on television by the children, from the year 1950 to 2010, that is over six decades. While the x-axis holds the years, the y-axis depicts the hours per day. The non-linear blue line displays the connection between the x and the y axis.

      Overall, the time spent on the above mentioned electronic device depicts a steady rise from 1950 to (which year?). There was a minute fall in the graph between 1960 to 1970, which very well caught up and rose to the maximum by the beginning of the 1980s. The mid-years of the ’80s seems to have had a decent fall which later started to rise by the same decade.

      The fall in time spent by the children on the idiot-box gradually commenced in the ’90s, continued falling even in the new century that is the year 2000. The reduction in time continued till 2010, but still, it was more than thrice the number of hours spent during the 1950s.

    The above figure neatly demonstrates the television usage of children from 1950-2010. Let’s take a closer look at it.

    Television viewing was minimal in the 1950s.However, the following decades saw a linear increase in television usage.This pattern was observed till the early parts of 1980 as the usage of television grew from a meager 0.5 to 3.8 in just thirty years . Children spend an astounding number of hours(4) glued to their televisions. After that period it remained relatively stable for about twenty years. The only exception was the momentary drop in usage reported at 1985 .However , this drop was followed by an marked increase in usage which peaked at around 4.2 in 1995. The twenty-first century marked the advent of the digital age. This era has seen a steady decrease in the time children spent on television so far. The value currently stands at 3.5. Various estimates predict that it will keep decreasing in the following years.
