I don't remember exactly when was the first time my youngest KIKO laid eyes on Mr. Bean. He's turning 3 years old this coming June and so far, he's growing up so fast like other normal kids do. I have witnessed every developmental milestone he's gone through and I know he has so much more to learn about things around him and how will he react on certain situation.
Somehow, I enjoy watching Mr. Bean and his crazy old comic acts and funny dancing moves. I noticed that Kiko also finds pleasure in watching either the animated program or the TV series starring Rowan Atkinson as the famous Mr. Bean whose whole life is one funny situation after another.
The truth is, I don't find any negative effect on my Kiko's attitude or the way he interacts. He never imitate Mr. Bean's weird actions and funny facial expressions. I think I have nothing to worry about his overwhelming interest in the hilarious man.What I have to do as a mom is to guide him, continue to teach him how to respond correctly especially to stressful situations and help him develop self-control.
These 3 opinions came from 3 different individuals, somehow open up a wider view of the issue:
- From Chardyme - "When I was kid, since the Mr. Bean started around 1989, me and my brothers used to watch this show every week together and we really find it very funny. Though back then we are just kids who loves funny movies and we don't really get to copy his moves. But seeing today's generations and as I see it to my kids that they seems to be copying everything they see. Guess what, my kids loves Mr. Bean's dance routine and they even dance the same way as well, that was funny but if I see my kids doing the other abnormal things that Mr. Bean is doing I really tell them not to copy that move and it was not right."
- From m@h - " Mr. Bean is one of my favorite cartoon movie.. although his character is always dim-witted, I think there's nothing wrong about that.. Mr. Bean is not a bad example to every child.. Actually, I have my godchild who's so in love watching Mr. Bean..
Mr. Bean never talk a lot.. but didn't you notice one good thing about him? HE NEVER LEAVE HIS TEDDY BEHIND.. LOL "never leave anything that is very much important to your life".. I think that's the moral lesson that we can get from this cartoon movie.."
- From whuuushuuu1829 - "I think it depends. Sometimes it can be dangerous for children but it really depends, if they watch the series with they parents on their side then watching Mr. Bean is good. But if they watch Mr.Bean without their parents consent then, it could be dangerous for children. Parents should monitor their children in watching Television"
To yield a positive outcome to a child.'s behavioral development, PARENTAL GUIDANCE is still the utmost concern.
