Ludhiana: Watching the cartoons on the television for the long hours is rendering city kids virtually in to cartoons as city doctors are coming across children who speak like cartoon characters and want to be like them in their life.
The doctors guide the parents that they should not let children watch television and if they insist to watch the cartoons, than let them watch cartoons just for half an hour not more than that in the day. Though, for affected children doctors recommend that they should not be allowed to watch cartoons by their parents as it could further enhance the speech problem and stay in their mind. The mind of the kids and nature develops in the early age of life only.
As study done on 500 children by the Christian Medical College and Hospital in the age group of 3 to 6 years conclude that around 70 percent children who watch cartoons for long hours on television has badly altered speech capabilities.
It makes them speak like cartoon characters as do the TV series, which should not take place at tender age as it could affect their speech for life and in certain cases it does not get clear fully.
The survey report concludes that children are becoming addicted to the cartoons as many grown up ones to social networking sites, internet and mobiles adding to their addiction.
Dr. Jogesh Chattwal, Professor Pediatric department said that in the present times the kids watch a lot of television mainly the cartoons. “Most of the parents are working these days and maids who take care of the kids from behind make them watch cartoons for hours in order to make them sit silently in front of television to do their own works and relax behind their owners come back home.”
“As kids feel attracted to watch cartoons so they develop the nature of watching cartoons and try to copy them in order to act like them, which automatically becomes a part of speech. If a speech gets disturbed in the early age of the kids it not good for development of the child so parents must take care of fact that they should not allow their children to watch excessive cartoons,” he added.
Moreover, the doctor further informed otherwise also to make the children watch television could affect their eye sight.
