The cell phones thing is weird for sure at first but honestly it’s just a different aesthetic. Nothing necessarily overtly good or bad IMO, just depends how you do it.
There actually were a couple of TYT episodes I wasn’t super into for that reason.
But that’s usually on the smaller scale.

It’s just a different direction they decided to do it with.
Social media is the one bit I had a legit concern for though.
I was terrified Pipp was going to become like an unlikeable Kim Kardashian type, but that really didn’t play out.

Say what you want, but no reasonable person disagrees with me. And it’s my own generation that’s doing this shit. I don’t blame the zoomers, I blame their POS parents who don’t actually care about them and just give them a poison just to shut them up. You hate the target demographic if you disagree with me. So many people are going to grow up traumatized and stupid from something they saw on the device that everyone is pushing on them. The ones who can still think are going to fucking hate us.

Look, to me (and this may only be ‘me’) but it isn’t smart phones that, in the your own poetic terms, are poisoning children’s minds, it’s the fact that companies are allowing people to post literally anything they want to anyone they want without repercussions. The real issue with this is that parents aren’t being willing enough to actually pay attention to what their children are doing, or watching or playing; leading to them being glued to their phones as they won’t be reprimanded for doing so. My sister is a primary school teacher (For you Americans, Elementary school- in an around ages 4 to 10-ish) and has to have a bucket that is locked away so that her year 3 students can’t touch their IPHONE 14s and SAMSUNG GALAXY S22s. That right there is the problem. Parents allowing children to have unrestricted access to phones at such a young age that addiction to them is almost certain.

Exactly. But the problem is, here’s this show that gives kids characters to look up to, and supposedly teaches them “life lessons,” all the while, promoting the absolute worst thing that’s ruining modern day kids’ lives. It’d be like if Blue’s Clues had the characters smoking and it was treated as a normal and good thing. It’s telling kids that they’re not cool if they aren’t ruining their lives.
Also, I’m the BP. Forgot to click the anonymous thing, but I’ll just leave it like this.

I feel that schools worldwide need an updated set of lesson plans for children who have access to mobile phones or tablets. It’s obvious that parents aren’t doing the job of monitoring what their children are doing nowadays, so there should be a lesson is schools now that dives into what a child should and shouldn’t do on their phones, how long they should use their phones, how they can help and/or hinder their learning etc.
To put timescale into perspective, I’m 24. I have a photo from a newspaper from when I was in Reception (so… 4 is? maybe?) when my primary school got our first PCs thst had larger screens and keyboards for kids with poor vision.
