tv kidsThere is no doubt that watching movies can be fun and engaging. It is one of the best ways to relieve stress, forget about offices’ hectic deadlines or school’s laborious projects, or just let a good, lazy Sunday pass by. Movies are not only enjoyable as some of them are entertaining, too. However, these are quite unhelpful if you don’t guide your children about the right movies to watch. Are movies good for kids, you may ask. This is a good question especially if you truly care about your kids’ development.

First of all, movies come in a wide plethora of kinds like comedy, drama, suspense, fiction, thriller, horror, and many others. Each genre comes with certain plots and themes that make each story exciting. In other words, there are neat and wholesome movies and there are also horrific and terrifying movies, which are sometimes filled with blood, violence, and mockery. You have to understand what these genres are all about, so each time you try to watch a movie from a DVD, make sure that your kids are all asleep or busy if it’s a movie for adults. Adult movies are mostly X rated by authorized companies while children’s movies are rated 13 or General, which respectively mean kids ages 13 and above and everyone regardless of age are allowed to see the movie.

Secondly, never leave your child watching TV alone even if the show is a cartoon show, especially if the kid already knows how to use the remote control. He might switch it to another channel and might get exposed to movies that look wholesome but with dirty themes. One example would be the series of Mr. Bean. Although this particular show is loved by both children and young at heart all over the world, psychologists actually deem it as inappropriate for children because of the type of behavior manifested by Mr. Bean. Therefore, it is necessary that kids should have at least one guardian while watching TV. However, if he or she is watching a movie from a DVD and if the videos stored in the disc are all appropriate for kids, you can let the kids watch it alone, but it should be in a place where you can easily watch him.

Finally, always supervise your kids’ TV viewing schedule. He should not be looking at the monitor at least 5 hours each day as this can be bad for his health. The glare from the monitor can strain his young eyes and can cause irritation. It can also make him sedentary, which can cause obesity. Hence, while movie viewing is a good recreational activity, there is nothing more important than reading books, playing, and caring for your children.
