Let’s start with the argument, as what do we watch on Television? Most of us are addicted to daily soap operas,and though some start with a great promise, after their 35th episode they all tend to become drab. Infact, once noticed on the Indian Television that if a protagonist in one soap is getting married, at least 5-6 different soaps will be having some sort of marriage celebrations, it’s almost as if they have run out of stories. For kids, I used to think that watching cartoons is a refreshing activity and harmless fun. Until, one day I sat down and watched ‘Shin-Chan’,”Oggy and the cockroaches’ and even the new ‘Tom and Jerry’.’Shin Chan’, is a mean badly behaved, rebellious mischief monger. Oggy- and his gang, just talk terribly and have a terrible accent(influenced from Bollywood). Now what was wrong with ‘Tom and Jerry’? They were showing so much violence that I was surprised, my little one was hitting us with a stick and finding it funny, in the same way that ‘Tom’ was running after ‘Jerry’.
Why did we do it?
How did we do it?
Did it work?
Why Should you do it? (Scientific reason )
Why Should you do it? (Personal reason )
It’s not so bad and you will be doing yourself and your kids a favour, as you would get plenty of time for each other and recreational activities.
