To avoid Amirul from mess up with my cooking and cleaning time, I will switch on the TV and lets him watch his favorite cartoons downloaded by his daddy. His favorite movies; Up, Madagascar, Toy Story, Khan Kluay, How to teach your Dragon, etc
To me, since his Daddy is the one who downloaded the movies, of course he had filter which one is good for Amirul and which one is not. Besides good entertainment and occupied his time, the movies also ideal for toddler. They have positive influences, good messages and value for toddlers to follow. Like Madagascar, Amirul learns recognizing the animals, learn the value of friendship through How to teach you dragon and value of family from Up.

However, lately, Amirul starts watching Ultraman Cosmos and Ben 10 on Youtube. Aisehhh, I don’t like it. It’s so much of violent and punching here and there actions. Despite of the fact Ultraman try to safe the world from Monster attack.
Toddlers are not only watching, but they also will imitate what they see. They still unable to determine what is seen is good or bad. For example; Amirul will only replicate what ultraman do without knowing the fight was bad behavioral actions. He do not know that fighting is violent acts.
In order to prevent any bad influences coming from TV programme, as a parent, we need constantly monitor what our toddlers watched and do not watch unsuitable programme with them
