Children’s channel

Letter to the Editor…

While a lot is being said about the content of movies for adults on cable, one should also be as vigilant about what our children are watching on TV. An American channel for children, Nickelodean, has gained much popularity amongst children who watch it for its popular TV serials for kids.

However, I was shocked to see a number of images shown on this channel recently. In one, a child picks his nose for the camera for about two minutes. In another shot, a sibling slaps his brother for the benefit of the camera. Such bad behaviour need not be promoted.

In another programme, a small boy was shown opening the gate of the house to a stranger. Such actions should be discouraged and not glorified on TV.
