"random Thinking" about today's Entertainment for kids!

"random Thinking" means exactly what it is. Thought clouds of various random relevant topics. So just like reality TV - this is reality "Blogversation"

today's Entertainment for kids!

Thinking back about my childhood TV shows, wasn't nothing more entertaining than learning the parts of speech with School House Rock! What seemed to be brief moments of information between the Superfriends, Land of the Lost and others; no doubt were the best animated grammar lessons.

"Verb!, Lolly Lolly Lolly get your Adverbs here, or I'm just a Bill." Explaining the mechanics of speech and other lessons through rhymes, rhythm and poetry. Saturday morning cartoons designed to edu-tain a young mind.

Now I understand what is meant by, "Shape the young minds of tomorrow" We were being taught through entertainment. Breaking it down within psychology,  these musical perceptions made a good learning science a cognitive enjoyable experience. I am 41 years old and Music, Spoken Word and the talent of rhetorical speaking fascinates me when Watched, Listened or Read. An informal training being utilize today, for New Media Blog-ver-sa-tions. Do you feel where I'm going with this...

Obviously my next thought in this thought, "what are the subliminal learning messages in today's entertainments." Off the back, hummm..... the magical gambling in "Pokemon", the vicarious sexuality as seen in the "Family Guy" and/ or the foreign home invasion played in video war games. Can you name which animation mentioned is not a children's show?

In no way I'm blaming the creators of these shows and games - for aligning their possible bedroom behaviors, jinn world imagination or Islamophobia thinking into animation form - noooo not at all. Animation have always been a children's paradigm of entertainment...This "random Thought" is about learning sciences and what messages are being subjected on the mind.

Parents, it's our responsibility to govern our children's programming and educate in the best way; without being a parent like, Bobby Boucher's Mom in Waterboy. I would like to see someone be as creative as School House Rock and use animation to educate and entertain once again. Last subject within this thought...
"it seems the TV programming of the 70s/ 80s developed a lot of innovative people in today's society, now subsequently; are ADHD and ritalin cases related to the form of entertainment being watched by young people today?"
I'm just thinking's worth a case study, you think?
