How Children learn & grow ?

Children are most likely to learn, and introduced with social, religious and cultural values at very young age, and at this age they are most likely to spend most of their time at homes watching TV.

But unfortunately there is no positive and socially active content on Pakistani TV channels for kids. In the old times there was a lot of content for kids, Ainak wala jin, meray bachpan k din, Sim sim hamara, these TV shows have very strong and inspirational messages in them which children used to learn and adopt in real life.

But now there is almost no content for kids on Pakistani TV channels. No doubt the internet is replacing all other entertainment means but still TV has a significant place in Pakistan but when it comes to content there is no useful or healthy content for kids.
