Pakistani media has successfully providing its readers and viewers with all aspects of news, information and entertainment. Unfortunately children are completely ignored by or electronic media. Though newspapers have small magazines for children our private channels don’t show any children’s shows. There used to be some programs children such as game shows, musical programs and some quiz shows, children not only enjoyed them but also gained information.

At present there is not a single show on television that is meant for children. Therefore, children are forced to watch adult content like music, drama and even political shows. As a result children’s psychology is badly affected. From these contents they can only learn how to fight by using abusive language and how to shout and insult others. I suggest that every TV channel should allocate a suitable time slot for children’ programs, they can have programs with storytelling, quizzes, poetry recitation, short plays, and interesting games.
