Cartoons were not originally for children; why do we assume they are? Same thing with many fairy tales- not for children! Go to Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan. Who reads the anime? Adults.
:reading:Parents - Screen EVERYTHING before allowing your children to watch. This goes for internet, old videos and DVD's, even those old "game-boy" devices. Most are trash! Give them good, wholesome Catholic-friendly books, literature, music instead. If you are unfamiliar with these, all the better! You can learn and be built up in the Faith along with your children. They will cherish the experience long after you are gone. :guitar:
