They lose their sensitivity. We begin to appreciate their ill behaviors when they are small. But as the time goes on we begin to hate them. We less care for them. They feel they are not loved. We see in carton nothing but disfigured faces and funny voices which these little ones catch up easily which cannot be undone. Why destroy them? They change and become less lovable.
Children believe what they see. They see someone hit on the head with a hammer and the worst thing is a six-inch lump that appears, but the victim is fine. Cartoon violence can make you think that hitting someone is funny with no real damage. There is a big difference in the behavior between children that grew up watching television, and those that do not.
My own daughter is very scared by violence in cartoons, and she lets me know. However, other kids may not be as forthcoming about their feelings and, therefore, may hold their fear inside. This can be very dangerous. Parents should carefully monitor what their kids are watching for this reason.
Kids take in everything they see and can be greatly influenced by it. Be it
from a parent or a cartoon, anything that sets a bad example for them to follow should be strictly monitored, especially if they are inclined toward
misbehaving and violence towards others.
In many ways, it depends on the skill and time involved of the parent. If a parent is there to enforce rules (don't hit other kids) when the child is away from the television, then I don't think that the child will grow to become unruly or bad-tempered. A young child needs a parent to help teach them right from wrong, and to keep them in check when their emotions get the best of them. Parenting, not television, will be the driving force that shapes a child's life.
