If like me, and you allow your children to watch television, a choice that I own and accept, then I feel then it is important to know what they are watching, and when we are still fully responsible for their input at home, when they totally depend on us, we must be vigilant. We would be best served showing children programs that we feel show them how we feel the world truly is. Of course I do not mean real humans doing real things, we can have characters and settings from all over the realm of imagination, but the feelings have to, in my opinion, be true to real life. In order to give a child a balanced outlook on how they conduct themselves as they grow older, we do not want our children growing up to feel over pressured or feel the need to be aggressive at any challenge. We do not want our children growing up in fear of any particular situation or event. We must, in my opinion, offer them a balanced outlook. Some programs aired, that are designed for children, for me do not represent what I want my children to feel is what real life feels like. Some programs I feel cast completely out of balance emotional settings in which we are given the idea that we behave in unbalanced and almost selfish ways rather than for the benefit of community, integrity and positive growth. I cannot offer you any advice on which programs you may feel are not suitable, as you know your children better than me. However, I would ask, parent to parent, human to human, former child to former child, please be careful and the fact something looks like it is for children doesn't mean that it is suitable for yours. Be aware.
