Cartoons and movies that are supposed to be for children teach all kinds of negative behaviors to children,,,behaviors that us parents would NOT accept. I've also heard of hidden messages in cartoons and movies. Things they learn from television can have a lasting effect on their behavior, way of thinking, attitude...they pick up bad habits and so on....so I'd just like to share what I do with my son....I told him that there are many other things that he can do instead of watching television...like colouring...painting...drawing...arts and craft...playing....and when he wants to watch tv I review this with him. I also do this with my niece and nephew. And most importantly I NEVER tell him to go and watch TV.
Just something I wanted to share to those who are interested.
