Panday kids and their costumes are good to look at on TV. Most children and their parents cheer for them while the TV producer smiles as the rating increases and money comes in. Do we still wonder why our kids have a hawkish stance? We show them on TV that people need to employ violence to survive.
We rationalize that, anyway, these kids know that this is only fiction,well, most of them do not. And they watch it, fascinated by the shouting, kicking and boxing melees occurring in the small boob tube in front of them. Can you instruct the parents not to allow their kids to watch? How can you, when it is labeled for general patronage and specifically for children.
Where are we leading our children?
