The cases of violent behavior amongst children is increasing by the day due to violent cartoons on TV.Note Cartoon Watching has become a favorite past time for children in India .This is due to a number of reasons like the busy life of parents,nuclear families,lack of safe open playgrounds etc.
In July 2006, when Shin Chan first appeared on Indian television screens, there were concerns regarding language, the behaviour and the mannerisms of the character Shin Chan. Due to this, the government banned Shin Chan in India till all such objectionable content was edited out.
This is leading to the harmful development of school children who try to repeat behaviour of cartoons in real life at schools.Bashing up classmates and objects becomes justified in children's mind as they see them on TV.Using abusive language and bad behaviour are some of the other harmful mannerisms being learned by children.
In our opinion children need to be encouraged to go out play with peers as this provides both exercise and a chance to develop interpersonal skills. It in a way is also the parents’ duty to censor what their children watch.
