CAR­TOONS AND KIDS

DRUM - - Ed's Notes -

Par­ents who don’t al­low their chil­dren to watch car­toons on tele­vi­sion are mak­ing a mis­take they may re­gret.

I’m say­ing this be­cause I’ve seen how car­toons have helped my daugh­ter’s mental de­vel­op­ment. She’s nat­u­rally bril­liant but I know car­toons are part of the rea­son she’s do­ing well, and as par­ents we’re proud of her.

Let’s not deny our chil­dren their right to ed­u­ca­tion just be­cause of our own in­ter­ests in soapies or shows that don’t ac­tu­ally ben­e­fit us.

Our kids are the fu­ture of our fam­i­lies, they’re the fu­ture lead­ers of this coun­try, so let’s give them what they want and watch it bear fruit you’ll en­joy to­mor­row. LETLADI WA GA-MPHAHLELE, MARALALENG
