Most parents believe that watching TV is harmful. Of course, this is true if the child is watching all day long. But remember yourself, didn’t you watch cartoons as a child? I believe that if you control this process, the cartoons will benefit.
It seems to me that what children watch is completely dependent on their parents. My girls watch little TV, he does not care for them, but I turn on cartoons that are able to captivate them for a while.
But his brother’s wife taught her daughter to constantly watch TV. It is easier for her, she turns on the children’s channel, the child looks, and she goes about her business. In my opinion, this is wrong.
What are cartoons for?
Psychologists point out several reasons why children should watch cartoons.
The first is that the characters speak the same language as the child. So, children not only hear the speech, but often repeat light words.
Also, most of the cartoons are very bright and colorful, which is very attractive for kids.
And the children do not just look at the screen, they are kind of immersed in a fairy tale, they worry and rejoice with the cartoon characters. It turns out that for children it is like a small adventure.
What is useful cartoons?
Of course, not all cartoons are equally good. Initially, their role was that the child shared good and evil. Indeed, in every fairy tale there are both positive and negative heroes. But today there are a lot of foreign cartoons, where more scenes are not for children.
Psychologists believe that cartoons are able to develop the imagination of kids. But it should be borne in mind that sometimes they are too much influence on the baby and you need to carefully monitor what the children are watching.
Any cartoon carries information that is necessary for the child and can not always be conveyed by adults.
What are developing cartoons?
Today there are a lot of developing cartoons for children of any age. For example, for the youngest, there is the Baby Einstein series. They do not have a specific plot, they just show various objects, toys. It is advisable that adults comment on what is shown on the screen.
Developing cartoons for older children are focused on the study of colors, numbers, letters, various objects, their forms. There are cartoons that will help in the study of foreign languages, help to teach a child to draw.
There are also cartoons when the child looks not only at the screen, but also repeats various actions for the characters.
Include or not such cartoons for children, parents decide. The main thing is that the baby does not watch TV for too long.
