Friends have long invited us and my daughter to go together for some children’s cartoon. They do not mind watching cartoons, and they love to walk with their daughter, as they have no children yet. But I did not dare to do everything – it was difficult to predict her behavior in the hall and during viewing.
Most of all I was afraid of her reaction to what was happening on the screen. With scary things, everything is clear. Eyes are closed, ears are clamped with palms – and all terrible disappears. More difficult with funny situations. At home, when she watches cartoons and something is amusing her, there is such a joyous squeal and cry that I feel ashamed of my neighbors.
On the one hand, it’s good that the child can and can survive such a fountain of positive emotions, but on the other hand, one must somehow make allowances for those around him. I pull a little bit, but so far it helps a little. And, of course, at home, in contrast to the cinema, you can get up, run, jump for joy near the computer.
And in fact…
We chose a neutral cartoon about the bee Maya. Before that, a poster was viewed on a computer, a trailer was watched – in general, they sparked interest. When the child saw the poster, the joy knew no bounds.
Not to say that the cartoon itself is very fascinated. It can be seen, an unusual situation diverted more attention to themselves. Oh, everything became dark! Oh, everything became light! That is why laughter and joys did not manage to surrender completely, as it happens at home. And thank God!
But sitting on the spot really turned out to be a problem. Houses quietly incubates the hour for watching cartoons, you have to drive out. And then they just sat down, after 10 minutes she began to get up, spinning. The argument that she is hindering the children sitting behind her, of course, was not convincing.
But the other kids, too, were not very assiduous and attentive. Some walked out into the aisle and watched a cartoon from there, standing. Others scoured here and there. Part of them didn’t wait until the end of the session, the parents simply took them away, although the cartoon lasted only 40 minutes.
By the way, the workers are evidently already aware of these features. They sold tickets approximately so that one or two families were sitting in the same row. The hall in the cinema is small and narrow, so it was not difficult to accommodate the audience. Convenient when you do not have to walk on someone else’s legs, constantly apologizing.
What really shocked me was the thin layer of popcorn on the velvet floor that came to light after turning on the light. I understand that children do not eat carefully, especially in the dark. But why then do they buy it at all? After all, this only distracts attention from the screen. However, in adult sessions, sometimes the situation is not the best, but that is another story.
As for us, I nevertheless concluded that 5 years is already a sufficient age to go to childcare sessions. Previously – this is discarded money. The child does not sit out so much and it is difficult for him to keep attention on the screen. Although much depends on the temperament of the child.
But now I am ready to accept the offer of friends and go to some Posipak.
