Some choose Barney, some profanity and crude language..
Everyone chooses for himself of course. Crude and uneducated people ridicule Barney, while kind and pure at heart love it. That's why Wikipedia encyclopedia describes this show as loved by children and hated by adults. Isn't it better to say and hear " I love you" and have your child growing up on these words, than to hear " shut up" hundreds times a day from a parent? Don't you all hear enough "shut ups" not only from parents but copied and repeated by small children even addressing their smaller siblings.. Doesn't America treasure an image of cultural nation.. Don't you know what an American thought overseas of? Crude and stupid.. Maybe because that's not the Barney show the adult Americans were watching in childhood and the morals of which they practice in their grown up lives as well. According to a major study of Interactive Technology Univerisity of Austin, Tx-"Children who watched Barney show between 2 and 5 years old have better sharing and other positive social behavior" My child of 2 years old never fights for toys, greets all the children that he sees, even though most of the children even don't wave back.. Parents now days seem not to take time to teach their children social manners, nor they think highly of Barney evidently. I have not seen all of Barney shows of course, but I don't agree that there is no individualism on the show. All children that play on the show now days are so different. I also don't agree to those who claim that Barney states that it's wrong or immoral to be unhappy or sad or angry.. There was a recent show about people's feelings where Barney was stating that it's OK to be angry, but you have to communicate with each other and talk your anger over. The parents should remember that Barney is only a "helping hand" and coach children right on social dangers that Barney may not cover as sexual abuse etc. You can't take off parents responsibility and scream that it's Barney's fault that children are so trusting and naive. Parents are to be responsible for their children. Barney is to help to form social skills that most parents don't have time to take time to teach their children to. To me and my child Barney is fun to watch.. When he gets older he may outgrow Barney, but that's fine, I know he will carry the knowledge of sharing and kindness with him that Barney shows help me to coach my child on. When you think about morals that Barney is carrying to our children, they are very similar to the Bible's morals. Please don't put the Bible morals down as well. At least remember what you do when you go to your Sunday church with a solemn face. Don't be a hypocrite.
