Disturbing Content in Child Movies and Cartoons: The Internet has been the source for everything since it was founded. But do we really have control over the content of the internet? Who is responsible for keeping the internet as a clean and safe environment? Those who use the internet even a little bit, will say at once that the internet is not clean or safe at all. When you want to watch a video on the internet you can see a lot of inappropriate videos. This might not be a big problem for you because you know what  you want to watch and how to decide what is good or bad for you. But, what about children? These inappropriate videos are very harmful for a child`s moral and psychological development; therefore, you have to pay attention to each video your children watch so that they can grow up decently.
