Here is why I hate the news.  They have exaggerated on the issue of what this pediatric research had said.  It is not focusing on Spongebob Squarepants.

Right from the start, it states watching too much television for children under 7 years old is bad.  That is why most cartoons like Spongebob Squarepants have a Y7 rating.  That means children under 7 should not watch this show without parental supervision.  May be that is the problem.  Parents are too busy to spend time with their children.

When I was young, I watched all sorts of things on television.  I was not traumatized at all by anything.  It might be due to do what was shown back then.  Mainly it was due to my parents knew how to supervise my sister and me.  Mom and dad were not mean or cruel, but they simply did not allow us to do thing that would harm us when we were young.  Now we are adults.  We were not golden children or perfect adults today.  Due to the proper child rearing we had, we turn out normal and not bad or disturbed.

No one is life is perfect.  Spite this survey, am not 100% convinced children can be conditioned by what they watch alone.  Each one is different.  Some children are shy others are not.  Some children are born geniuses others are not.  That is another misguided aspect of the news, they do not tell the whole facts.  What they do state is bits and pieces and twist things to how they want their readers/viewers to think and believe.  That is why I have a link at the bottom of this blog post on the complete facts of what this research does say.

When parents read this research, I hope that they understand how important for them to be with their own children constantly.  That is why human beings live the longest of all the living beings on Earth.  The parents, not the news, television, movies, Internet, or whatever, are suppose to teach and train their own children about life.
