I never thought that this problem could touch me. To what is shown today on the blue screen, I am sharply negative.
Not only that, if you don’t turn it on, you won’t get out of it without noticing that the day has already ended. So also the transfer – completely murder, cruelty, and in general every negative. All that is covered is broadcast when parents are at work and children have access to control panels.
Even when watching music channels often show anatomy in the face of half-naked girls. However, what kind of person? Usually they are shown much lower. This is no longer thinking about the lyrics of the songs – who, whom, when, how and where.
I don’t even want to remember about the children’s TV channels – Spongebobs, Cotopsians and other incomprehensible mutants are shown round the clock.
All this led me to the decision to stop watching TV almost 8 years ago and have no regrets about it. All that is interesting – download from the Internet. And at the same time I will not be forced to look through the hours of advertising. Not to mention the fact that I really want to look into the face of those who advertise in children’s time, from which even my hair stands on end.
But in each apartment that I rent, there is the notorious zomboyaschik. And on the current cable is connected. It became my terrible dream.
Habit – second nature
Not so long ago, a relative was visiting with us, watching TV almost 24 hours a day. Even at night leaves, otherwise can not sleep. I do not like quarrels, and even more so I don’t want to say something to a dear person who has come to see him. And what will happen if they watch TV in the house for a month? If I knew how this would turn out …
The child with her watched from the very morning of Detectives, Trace and other low-grade serials. And I had to constantly remind you that on particularly explicit scenes you must at least switch the channel …
The relative left, and I had to clear up the mess. The result was, in my opinion, terrible: a four-year-old child was constantly talking about murders. Games spun around the fact that someone is killing someone, and the detective is looking for the killer. Giving me a mug, my daughter always reminded: do not forget to erase fingerprints!
Back to square one
My nerves could not stand for a long time, and I turned off the TV. But it was not there. Little rascal was not to hold. Pressing the button on the kinescope or remote was not enough. The batteries pulled out from the remote control led to a prolonged tantrum.
I had to accept and put a restriction – it looks only what I allow. But the problem is that finding acceptable gears in childhood is something on the verge of science fiction.
Compromise became all sorts of Batman, Scooby Doo and other drawn trash. At least there was at least an approximate plot and people looked like people.
But such cartoons came out sideways. Having seen a lot of advertisements about Bakugan and some boy with a clock, my young miss began to run around the house, throwing balls from the tent and screaming Bakugan. It became clear to me that there could be no compromise on this issue.
In the end, I disconnected the power filter from the outlet, and I bought new toys for the child and began to occupy as much time as possible. This, of course, also has its drawbacks – after all, I hardly have time to work, devoting all my time to distracting the child from the TV. And we watch cartoons – one long at night, if I’m busy. Sometimes even Disney, although I don’t really like them.
