"All TV is educational. The question is: what does it teach?"
-Nicholas Johnson (FCC Commissioner)We really do need to be careful of what we let our kids watch, because they are learning from it. The media is all-pervasive in our culture. Just search YouTube for toddlers singing/lipsyncing/copying stars, etc. In the following example, this little guy seems to have not just the general actions, but the words AND the actions down pat. I think it's too much when a little kid not even old enough to go to school yet can imitate a music video.
And as a last thought, I want to share a quote I've heard multiple times, "Just because it's a cartoon doesn't mean it's appropriate for children."
*Side note: sorry I can't fit the YouTube videos, I really am computer illiterate, and just learning how to do this stuff. I couldn't make it post any smaller, so, you'll just have to watch it like it is.
