Everything should be approached with the mind and abide by the measure. If you don’t watch cartoons fanatically and around the clock, you can still get some benefit from this process.
It seems to me that if you filter the video viewed by the child, you can get a lot of useful information from the review.
It often amazes me how my daughter memorizes whole phrases and new words from cartoons for her. Moreover, she uses them to the point, but I know that at home such words as, for example, are amazing now, etc. she could not hear.
In the same way she remembers songs, during the pronunciation of which diction is perfectly trained. Moreover, it does not matter in what language the song is, it even happens that the daughter looks at cartoons in Polish or Italian for some reason.
By the way, in a game form (as it happens in cartoons) it is much easier and faster to memorize foreign words.
If you explain to your child in advance which of the characters behaves correctly and who is ill-mannered, then soon you will notice some changes in the child’s behavior.
Here I mean both the benevolent Leopold with him. Let’s live together, and the ill-mannered caterpillars from the Luntik TV series, and other goodies.
After watching the cartoons about the Winx fairies, the daughter agreed to wear leggings again (as the heroines do) and in every second photo she takes poses from cartoons;)
By the way, already every year the daughter constantly reminds everyone that if you don’t wear a panama hat, a sunstroke and loss of consciousness can happen, like the grasshopper Kuzi from her favorite cartoon.
A similar situation with the failure of the requests of parents (usually, with the heroes who do not obey, something bad happens), the rules of hygiene (for example, Moidodyr).
In this section, informative cartoons, for example, Fixiki (about the device and the principle of work of things that surround us) or Dasha-ranger (there are elements of learning English). Honestly, it was thanks to Fixico that I learned about the design of the washbasin.
In the right cartoons are usually heroes polite and educated. Here I do not mean the Western animated series about the sponge Bob or Auggie, for example.
Take, for example, the good old Soviet cartoons – in fact, after all, almost all the characters are polite and educated. And the cartoons themselves are distinguished by kindness and elements of an educational nature.
We have morning and evening watching cartoons – a kind of ritual. If the daughter is punished, evening viewing is usually canceled.
Sometimes I am surprised and alarmed by the stories of some parents, they say, my child himself goes on the Internet and finds his favorite cartoon. Here you should be very careful, because in addition to cartoons on the Internet is full of videos that children can not watch.
So one day, in view of my carelessness, my daughter came across a video about Masha with bad words, barely then weaned her off.
And for what purpose do you show children cartoons?
