My children like watching cartoons and some of them have songs and other things is this something that I should ban in my home

00:00:11--> 00:00:54

Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam, ala rasulillah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What that are cartoons in general are something that you don't want to have heavy consumption for children in their viewership up. And a lot of the subliminal messaging that is brought into our homes, especially into the young minds of our children, is slipped through what apparently from the outside seem to be innocuous, child friendly, cartoon books, and magazines and things of that nature. So you need to actually be really, really critical of what it is you expose their young minds and hearts to the colors that are chosen, the patterns, the lighting, the words that are used, some of the sarcasm that's made towards

00:00:54--> 00:01:31

parents in the cartoon characters. All of these are things that subliminally enter into our child's hearts. Do my children watch cartoons? Absolutely. But do they get filtered by me? And am I very critical with which cartoons that they were allowed to watch and which ones they're not allowed to watch? And at what age they were exposed to? The answer is yes. So if you're just thinking about singing and songs, I think you've narrowed your approach to something that is of a greater problem that you need to be more considerate of. A good place to begin is Common Sense Media. It's a website that allows you to see what other parents think gives you a quick definition of what are some of the

00:01:32--> 00:02:11

contents, what kind of swear words and other things that may be added to it as they grow older, it refers to also books and magazines, cartoons, all of those are things that I think you need to be much more in tune of, it is better for you to be selective of what they watch than to keep it open just because it's animated. I want you to also understand that there's that section of cartoon viewership, which is called the enemy that is meant for an adult audience. There are cartoons today that were not that are not at the same level of tolerance, that what my parents would have allowed that are being consumed by young young minds. Be very careful and tread lightly. May Allah subhanho

00:02:11--> 00:02:30

wa Taala protect our young children, their growing minds and hearts and make them less susceptible to the cognitive dissonance that is being exposed within them. And what is being allowed and not allowed in our homes. I asked Allah subhana wa Taala to watch over them and to allow us to be proud of them into their future.
