Children learn all kinds of things when they are growing up and soon build up a database in their minds of the type of things that are good or bad for them. These are largely dependent on family members and personalities who have a certain degree of authority over others telling them things that are carried on through adult life. As with most things though, not all of those actions that we were told are bad for us actually are. In fact, many of them are comparatively harmless and pose no danger or risk.
Parents often go to extreme lengths to try to convince their children that alcohol is something that is very harmful and that drinking it should be avoided at all times.

Popular belief has often held that comedies, whether on TV or the big screen, are not beneficial in any way, especially when compared to high qualities dramas.
