Children development nowadays have always been affected by their surrounding for example, what they see, what they hear, what they read or even what they used to follow what others do. This all matters seem to make children behave on what they usually behaved. It means that they easily follow what environment shows them. This so-called problem is called effects of media toward children.
Media can be described as communication channels through which news, entertainment, education, data or promotional messages are disseminated. Media includes all aspect from social, psychology, electronics, printing, advertisement and many more. All this channels can be viewed as part of children life.
