We all remember theme tunes from our favourite animated series - almost everyone who is currently 30-40 years old can hum a tune from Duck Tales, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or Darkwing Duck even if they have not heard it for the last 20 years. But why do TV networks like Cbeebies spend a lot of time and effort to create a song for kids that sticks in their memory? Why are there long songs in animated series on Cbeebies, if you can use this airtime to include more episodes that are educational?
Should parents be wary of games and apps for smart phones and tablets aimed at young children?
Do you remember the time when only adults used smartphones, not kids who have barely learned to walk? We live in an information age, and now it is not uncommon to see a 2-3 year old child playing around with the latest iPhone. Although it may seem wrong to many parents, it's not worth fighting change and progress – a smartphone for your child is like toy soldiers or dolls for the older generation – something that you grew up with and got used to.
