A waste of time for your child.
I’m at my friend’s house and her child fell asleep watching Peppa Pig, which is fine with me, but I’m a future teacher and I see many issues with this show. These are tidbits that I’ve observed over multiple episodes.
1. There’s a turtle called “Tittles”.
2. There’s a bumblebee that chases the dad and the Daddy Pig calls it a wasp.
3. Daddy Pig returns a library book after ten years and the librarian just says, “It’s okay! Now you can get a new one!”
4. Daddy pig runs away from the bee and it chases him... this bothered me because in real life, if you run from a bee and freak out, it’s going to sting you.
5. One of the characters said he could do a million and three hula hoop swings so he tried, all of the kids counted along, and he stopped at eight. All the kids looked disappointed and the character said, “I’m just tired right now. I’ll do the rest later,” and the scene moves forward.
6. Daddy Pig is running up an, almost ninety degree, hill and all of his friends and family are cheering him on, but all the while they’re riding on a bus to the top of the hill.
7. Peppa Pig skates for the first time, so she goes out holding her moms hand at first. Her mom tells her to, “Push, push, glide,” and Peppa does just that. She then lets go of her moms hand and skates around perfectly, all the while she says, “Skating is easy!” Her dad tells her she’s doing great and the mom says something along the line of, “Of course she is, I’m a great teacher!” >This whole scene bugs me because it teaches a lesson that things like that are easy to pick up and do. And also that it doesn’t take much to teach; you just tell someone what to do and that’s that. No lessons on failing and learning from failure or how to deal with failing.
It’s just a lot of nothing. No life lessons, vocabulary, math, nothing.
