During the lockdown, where schools and parks are closed, children have turned their attention to
cartoons. It is sometimes observed that children adopt aggressive behaviours as a result of certain
cartoons. This makes it increasingly important for parents to surveil the kind of cartoons their children
are watching. Certain cartoons like “Intelligent Bear” played on Pogo provide no value to children as
they lack both in theme and plot. I have observed my own child imitating the actions she has observed
in the cartoons she watched. This is because children are quite receptive and open to absorbing new
information. Therefore, it is my belief that we should provide. wholesome and engaging content to our
children so that they may learn from it. This could include cartoons centered around idealistic
figureheads and morally upright characters to encourage good behaviours. Children often imitate these
characters, and characters of such nature shall provide our children with good role models for their
future development.
