Wondering why certain TV shows attract your kids like magnets and others don’t? While you think they’re just singing along with theme songs and uttering their characters’ catchphrases, their personalities are being expressed – even if it’s just a little bit.
It’s more than liking the animation or the music. It’s absorbing who’s in the show, their mannerisms, tone, and behavior. Like adults, children can connect with characters if they see some part of themselves reflected. For some parents, it’s either encouraging or frightening. One show that’s been in parents’ scopes lately is Peppa Pig.
Poor Peppa Pig has gained some notoriety lately with her antics. She’s sassy, outspoken, and doesn’t always display good manners. Some would call her mean. On the flip side, the girl likes to try to new things and have fun. And toddlers love her.
So, if your child digs the TV show Peppa Pig, what does it say about his/her young personality? Your kid probably isn’t afraid to assert herself when it comes to expressing her opinion, self-acquired knowledge, or boisterous side. She may also have a small obsession with muddy puddles.
She likes to go first and get ahead of things, staking her claim as the wisest of the bunch (which may or may not be implied). And boy, does this child have the gift of gab. Thus is the effect of Peppa.
Keep in mind this is all in good fun. And it’s not so much the show that is influencing your child’s personality (though it can influence the behavior), but more what their tastes say about them at a young age.
