Cartoons change for the worse

Mikayla Reddick

I don’t know about you, but when I was little, my favorite thing to do right after I woke up in the morning was to turn on Disney Channel or Nickelodeon and watch cartoons.

I’m not talking about the cartoons you see when you turn on the television today. I’m talking about the ones that actually give a good message and kids still enjoy watching. Some of these include “Bear in the Big Blue House” and “Rolie Polie Olie” on Disney Channel.

As I’m sure you can tell by now, I’m not a huge fan of the recent cartoons that are coming out.

Just the other day, I was babysitting a little boy and he wanted to watch cartoons. I turned on the television and the first cartoon that we found was called “Almost Naked Animals.”

What are we teaching our kids?

Adults today complain about the behavior of modern kids and teenagers. Some of this behavior might be a result of what they are watching on television or listening to on the radio.  I’m not blaming it all on this, but it does have a big effect.

I also understand that you can’t always control the television or music that your teenagers are exposed to, but you do have the ability to control what your little kids are watching and listening to.

Just by changing the television programs you allow your kids to watch, they could learn a great lesson and improve their behavior.
