Advice on television by roald dahl
Advice on Television involves parents and communities in their academic lives by Roald Dahl

  • The most important thing we've learned,

  • So far as children are concerned,

  • Is never, Never, Never, let

  • Them near your television set - Or better still, don't install

  • The idiotic thing at all.


  • In almost every house we've been, involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • We've watched them gaping at the screen.

  • They loll and slop and lounge about,

  • And stare until their eyes pop out.

  • (Last week in someone's place we saw

  • A dozen eyeballs on the floor.)


  • They sit and stare and stare and sit involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • Until they're hypnotized by it,

  • Until they're absolutely drunk

  • With all that shocking ghastly junk.


  • Oh yes, we know it keeps them still, involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • They don't climb out the window sill,

  • They never fight, kick or punch,

  • They leave you free to cook the lunch


  • And wash the dishes in the sink involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • But did you ever stop to think,

  • To wonder just exactly what

  • This does to your beloved tot?


  • IT ROTS THE HEAD! involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • IT KILLS IMAGINATION DEAD!

  • IT CLOGS AND CLUTTERS UP THE MIND!

  • IT MAKES A CHILD SO DULL AND BLIND

  • HE CAN NO LONGER UNDERSTAND A FANTASY, A FAIRYLAND!



  • 'All right!' you'll cry, 'All right!' you'll say, involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • But if we take the set away,

  • What should we do to entertain

  • Our darling children! Please explain!

  • 'We'll answer this by asking you,

  • 'What used the darling ones to do?



  • THEY ...USED...TO ...READ! involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • They'd READ and READ and READ, AND READ and READ, AND THEN PROCEED to READ some more.

  • Great Scott! Gadzooks!

  • One half their lives was reading books!


  • The nursery shelves held books galore! involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • Books cluttered up the nursery floor!

  • And in the bedroom, by the bed,

  • More books were waiting to be read!

  • Such wondrous, fine fantastic tales

  • Of dragons, gypsies, queens and whales


  • And treasure isles and distant shores involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • Where smugglers rowed with muffled oars,

  • And pirates wearing purple pants,

  • And sailing ships and elephants,

  • And cannibals crouching round a pot,

  • Stirring away at something hot...


  • Oh books, What books they used to know, involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • Those children living long ago!

  • So please, oh please, we beg, we pray,

  • Go throw your T.V. set away,

  • And in its place you can install

  • A lovely bookshelf on the wall.


  • Then fill the shelves with lots of books, involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • Ignoring all the dirty looks,

  • The screams and yells, the bites and kicks,

  • And the children hitting you with sticks -


  • Fear not, because we promise you involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • That in about a week or two of having nothing else to do,

  • They now begin to feel the need

  • Of having something good to read.



  • They'll grow so keen involves parents and communities in their academic lives

  • They'll wonder what they've ever seen

  • In that ridiculous machine,

  • That nauseating, foul, unclean,

  • Repulsive television screen!
