CHAPTER ONE, INTRODUCTION

  1. BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The word “Adolescence” comes from the Latin word adolescere meaning “to grow into maturity”. It ranges between childhood and adulthood, it covers the period from age 12 till the early 20.

According to Unachukwu and Ebenebe (2007) stated that the common denominator in all adolescent experiences irrespective of cultural variations is the biological changes from childhood into mature adults’ status capable of reproduction.

It is also a time of enormous physiological changes; adolescence is also marked by changes in behaviour and expectations. It is regarded as a prelude to and preparation for adulthood, a transitional period of life between immaturity and maturity as well as having to deal with the question “who am I”. The adolescent must also deal with the question “who will I be” (Gross and Mc Illveen, 1998). This is ongoing in Nigeria today; there have been significant changes in the lives of most adolescents in Nigeria. Some of these changes are as a result of the friends, peer group, and media especially cable television (DSTV).

Cable television (DSTV) plays a role in the development of a child from the period of adolescent to adult; the noticeable effect of cable television (DSTV) can be reflected in the academic performance, the level of socialization and creativity among adolescents in Nigeria (Maduewesi, E. J. (2005).

The most pronounced effect is seen on the level of academic performance and socialization among adolescent in Nigeria. The spread of DSTV television channel and other television channels have exposed children to foreign programs. This has made the world a global village where what is watched on television in the developed countries is equally watched in developing countries hence the proliferation of negative effects like poor pre-school performance, aggressive behavior, and English, Mother tongue languages impediment among others (Zevenbergen, 2007).

The parents or guidance can help curb the negative effect of cable television (DSTV) on adolescents in Nigeria by exposing them to right and wrong at the early stage of development; this by default will shape the mindset of children from the early stage of development to adult stage. The study in this regard wishes to examine the influence of cable television (DSTV) on adolescent creativity, academic performance and socialization using Grange schools GRA, Ikeja as the case study.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

The cable television (DSTV) is considered the most entertaining among other forms of media; but inasmuch as  creating an avenue for relaxation purposes, there are some disadvantages attached to it; some of these disadvantages in seen in the level of adolescent creativity, the academic performance and the level of socialization among adolescent in Nigeria. Some of the cable television (DSTV) channels are educative while some are violent but most adolescents are easily influenced by the violent channels of cable television (DSTV), this therefore lead to behavioural changes both at home and in their learning environment; the effect of the violent cable television (DSTV) channels give rise to truancy, deviant behavior exhibited by most students in junior and secondary schools. But if children are properly guided by parents and guidance the effect will be controllable.

        According to Austin (1992) points out that; Television watching can have positive effects on pre-school children if well guided by parents and guardians. Television watching as a learning process can promote general learning as well as pre-school children’s academic performance either negatively or positively (Nganda, 2007).
