I read a great article this evening from a mother who suggested every child should watch the show, “Sarah and Duck.” Here are my own thoughts on the show, and why my husband and I love it:
Our friend Annie is the one who originally introduced us to this two years ago when it was still on Netflix. As much as we enjoy watching shows and movies with Nate like Paw Patrol, Curious George, and Pixar movies such as Toy Story or Cars, sometimes I feel like I am on a really bad acid trip with over stimulating colors and high-pitched voices.
Right before Nate turned two, Josh and I knew we wanted to look at enrolling Nate into Montessori by three to four years old. It’s an alternative education program and even integrated lifestyle that is not for everyone. One of the suggested/required changes is what television programs that the child is exposed to. We have been slowly working on those, of many, changes. We have found “Sarah and Duck” to encourage creativity, diversity, and a form calmness. It also provides opportunities to integrate hands-on activities and conversation starters. As parents, we are wanting to create an environment that allows Nate to grow and soar without completely pulling away (supervised) media.
Whether you are looking to pursue a radical lifestyle change for your child, or are just looking for a new show to watch with your child, this is definitely one of them.
