Inventor of the Television

From "Copywork for Girls" Lesson 83:

"I didn’t even dream it would be so good.  But I would never let my children come close to the thing"

Vladimir Zworykin, quoted on his 92nd birthday, talking about his invention, the television

Amazing the inventor of the television knew it wasn’t good for children.  Studies have shown that babies under the age of 2 can be affected by the television.  Just google "effects of T.V on 2 year old children" and you’ll bring up numerous articles like this one and reports like this one 


One thought on “Inventor of the Television

  1. This brings up an interesting ethical question. Would you invent and allow to be marketed an item that you would not allow your children to get near b/c you knew it would be "dangerous"?
