The effect of watching too much cartoons in children
I read an article where the author was really good at naming mental health illness to the characters of Winnie the Pooh. She also stated that cartoons have hidden psychological impact on children. What are your opinions on this?
I have read about how children are influenced by watching cartoons for longer hours. Some who watches cartoons with violence tends to be more aggressive and disobedient.
And I think we should also limit their time watching cartoons or TV for that matter. As parents, we need to inculcate more of communication and enhance their development aside from being a digital zombie. I found a good site that has numerous parenting advice. This is a good reference to take.

Caution Rant to follow.
Cartoons aimed at an audience of children have been violent from the beginning. Tom and Jerry, the Roadrunner, Yosemity Sam, and many others. These all had over the top violence and were all shown in theaters before the main attractions before becoming a Saturday morning staple. What has changed from the 1950s and 1960s and today? What hasn’t! There was discipline in the home and school, there were nuclear families, the NRA was in schools teaching gun safety, God was not a four letter word, and let’s not forget that the rise of today’s first person shooter video games. This popular form of entertainment developed around the same time as the explosion of school violence.
Of course this is just my humble opinion.

I absolutely agree with the previous statements. It is necessary to limit the viewing time of cartoons to 1 hour per day
I have 2 kids and they love watching Pepa Pig which is not a good thing because Pepa Pig has a bad attitude towards her elders and my kids are also doing that because they like what Pepa Pig is doing.
Before everyone had TVs we read 8 pagers , kind of fun,
When TV first started it was only on 2 hours in the evening, the rest of the time you could watch the test pattern
Attitude and Ability is everything, without Government Laws we would all be equal, until we are Influenced by others.
