First off, I am not a parent and I don’t sit around the tv watching educational kiddie shows (I prefer my cartoons to be a bit F’d up), but from my experience babysitting and scrolling thru the listings it seems all the shows meant for kids focus on sharing, inclusion, friendship, and so on. All of these are important messages and they should be watched by children (imho). However I’ve never seen a kids show focusing on how important it is to succeed. There doesn’t seem to be any kiddie shows enforcing what it takes to be better than their peers. Here’s what I’m thinking kids should be taught also by these types of scenarios. There can be a story about one kiddie winning something like a box of cookies or candy bars, etc. Instead of the focus being on how the winner should share, let it be a lesson about how the person who won worked harder and deserved to win. Let kids know that if they don’t put in the work because they prefer their video games they shouldn’t expect to be rewarded like champions. Let there be a story where the team loses, and instead of the coach saying how proud they were and they tried their best, let the coaches say they lost because one or several people slacked all week at practice. Let them know the lessons of letting your team down. Let them know if you don’t do your best expect to be kicked off the team. How about a story that instead of focusing on someone who isn’t as naturally talented as someone doing their best, make it about the gifted one getting by on just their natural talent instead of teaching them natural talent will only get them so far. Lots of people have talent. The true champions don’t just rely on talent. They rely on the focus and hard work they put into their talent to not just make them successful, but again I say champions. What they need to do to be the best. It just seems there are a lot of people who are sick of losing competitiveness and would eat up shows like this. I’m not a parent so I could be talking out my azz, but this is just how it seems to me on the outside looking in.
