Wyng's favourite programmes are from channels such as National Geographic, Discovery, Animal Planet and kids' programmes from TV IQ such as Kids United, Backyard Science among others. Sometimes, he also loves to watch Wipe Out, Masterchef and Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?
I do not have problems with him watching all these shows at all. Why complain when most of his science and general knowledge come from watching all these programmes? However, lately ever since the commencement of the year-end school holidays, he is hooked on the Animax channel which shows a Japanese cartoon called Fairy Tail. He watches this programme and nothing else and his addiction has been going on for about a week.
So obsessed is he that when we go out to the grocer or nearby supermarket, he will be asking me how long have we been out. This way, he knows how long he has missed the show.
I definitely want him to go back to his usual habit of watching those educational programmes. I am resorting to bribing him to watch these shows or he will not get to touch the computer. It works!
Anything the kids are obsessed to is no good.
