Par­ents com­plain Peppa Pig is in­ap­pro­pri­ate

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

Bri­tish car­toon Peppa Pig re­cently sparked heated dis­cus­sions among par­ents in Shang­hai af­ter some com­plained that the con­tent was too silly and ad­dic­tive for chil­dren. Par­ents also found their chil­dren act­ing like pigs, mak­ing “oink” noises and jump­ing into muddy pud­dles, thep­a­per.cn re­ported Tues­day.

One mother sur­named Zhao be­lieves the car­toon has had a neg­a­tive im­pact on her 3-year-old. “It is prob­lem­atic to let kids act like pigs,” she said. Other par­ents be­lieve chil­dren who watch the show can learn good so­cial val­ues such as equal­ity.

Xiong Bingqi, an ed­u­ca­tional ex­pert, be­lieves par­ents are re­spon­si­ble enough to help guide and ed­u­cate their chil­dren with an­i­ma­tion and also pre­vent them from im­i­tat­ing in­ap­pro­pri­ate con­tent.
