NEWS means north east west south. Hence it is mostly about what is happening in the four directions of the world. Most of the times the current affairs and news of our own country, matter the most to us in our daily life. For instance, if the stock market index fluctuates then it means to rise or fall of the price of certain goods that you use in your daily life. At the same time, news like the forecast of hurricanes and snowstorms help you to prepare yourself against them.
The news is especially necessary to know how the world is changing. The things that are happening, the discoveries that are being made which will alter the way we live. For instance, the use of robotics in medical treatment had led many people’s lives to be saved when all hope was lost. This is the reason that we need to know the current happenings if not in the world but your own country at least.
You will learn about the best methods of investment, which is the best time to buy a house or car or even household appliances. You will learn what the political scenario is like and what laws and new rules and regulations have been put into practice. This is also true regarding taxation laws which are related to all citizens of the country. The news is also a good way of teaching kids because when you give them advice and then give them a bit of newspaper that supports your advice, it will have the desired impact on the kids. For instance, if you want your teenage son or daughter to stay away from smoking then you can hand them a bit of recent research on the harms of smoking.
Keeping in touch with the news also tells us about fashion. Yes, it is true. This is because news articles often feature pictures of political figures and celebrities in their latest attire.

This way they will grow up to be informed and hence responsible citizens. In fact, you can set an example for your kids by discussing news at the dinner table instead of idle gossip. This will encourage them to take more interest in current affairs and news.
