Infancy And Childhood Reflection 1. ) The shows I chose to watch are shows that children usually don’t grow out of or are attracted to at a younger and older age. The Simpsons, a classic comedy which draws the majority of us in with its realistic family and practical witt. The family goes through hardship, excitement, triumph and everyday experience that most families go through. ‘Homer’ the father of the family is employed by the power plant and is in constant battles to keep his job. ‘Marge’ the wife of the family is edgy or easily becomes paranoid, her main job is to be a stay at home mom, however she often goes out and tries to become more distinguished in society by working outside the home.
She tries several times to get a job but often realizes she can’t part with her family for those few hours a day. She is the basic prototype of every average American mother. ‘Bart’ the families son is a brat, of course being the boy of the family they make him out to be the trouble maker mainly because most families direct evidence of mischief to the boy because they are more curio use or perhaps more unaware of the consequences which come along with right and wrong actions but they may also simply not care. Bart vandalizes things, humiliates several members of the schools faculty, steals items from stores and dis-respects his parents. All this seems quit bad for a children show but Barts softer side does come around once in awhile, for every wrong thing he does it later shows his guilt and the punishments that come along with misbehaving. ‘Lisa’ the families most prevailed member of the family, is of a much higher intelligence then the rest of the family and is not blind of her families social class and immature behaviour excluding Marge.
A postmodern family is a family, which has been stripped down from the extended family model consisting of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins all living together. The postmodern family is an "anything goes family." It can include stepmothers, stepfathers, half brothers and sisters, and many aunts, uncles, and grandparents. The family that used to be economically dependent on the male now has ...
Lisa, however still loves her family and even though they irritate and ignore or fail to notice her natural talent and integrity she knows this is who they are and she most except this. ‘Maggie’ is an insignificant character shes just there in the family to make the family look complete. I believe this cartoon is a good television show for children because it exposes reality too them in a lighter, less harsh way. Barts offences are merle y experiments most children go through to impress other kids or grab attention from negligent detached parents. Lisa’s extreme intelligence goes beyond due dates and class expectations, she wants to be so she can escape the trade.
