A group of experts at Harvard University did a study discovering that Peppa Pig is one of te main causes of autism among children.
This animated movie has achieved great success. There are many toys, t-shirts, and many other things with this character. However, the question still remains. Is this cartoon character good for children? The answer is NO.
The experts say there is evidence to show an increase in adversarial, snide, questioning, confrontational and disrespectful behavior, which are apparently a result of watching cartoons, like Peppa Pig. It’s true, Peppa is downright rude and her parents let her get away with murder. I once saw an episode where Pepper and her brother George refused to tidy their room until their parents made it into a game, and when they’d finished the brats just trashed the room again, laughing arrogantly.
These are the unique features Peppa possesses:
- Suffers from the syndrome of superiority;
- Inappropriate behavior;
- Imposes ideas regardless of others’ opinions;
- Competitive (it does not how to lose);
There are parents who complained that their children copy the behavior of Peppa and her brother George, and some of them even banned the cartoon from being watched in their homes.
Thus, be very careful, all you parents out there. There is nothing special about Peppa Pig. The same applies to all the other programs. Around 80% of the brain develops during the first few months until 3 years old. In case they spend a lot of time watching the TV, they will copy the forms of behavior that they see on TV.
