Want To Learn New Things? Watch TV & Movies

Television and movies often get a bad rap for teaching kids bad things or just reinforcing bad behavior overall. Some tv shows and films do nothing to “enhance” one’s life but watching a good movie, or interesting television show can teach you a little bit about some of the important things in life (aka. Life skills).

Life skills can be learned from family, friends, and even in schools, but what happens when there are things you want to learn or feel like you should know, and no one taught you? You could grab a book off the shelf, you could browse all the “how-to” articles on the Internet, and you could turn on the television or watch a movie.

Learning From a Young Age

While it’s not the best idea to plop your young child down in front of the television, unsupervised, for hours at a time each day, age-appropriate tv shows and movies can help develop language skills, teach empathy, and learn how to do basic things like getting dressed or brushing teeth.

While parents should leave all these necessary skills to furry monsters or animated animals, shows and movies can help enhance the learning experience and peak interest in some otherwise boring or difficult tasks. There’s a reason that Sesame Street is still going strong after nearly 50 years.

Building Upon What You Already Know

Self-sufficiency is a big part of being an adult. While knowing how to cook is often viewed as a basic life skill, many adults don’t know how to cook, let alone boil water.

Have you ever wondered why cooking shows are so popular? Why there is a network devoted to cooking shows? This type of programming could be popular because we, as a society, love food but there’s more to it than a food obsessed society. Watching cooking shows can inspire and encourage a novice cook.

The same can be said about watching shows like This Old House. How many times have you found yourself zoned out to Bob Vila showing you how to put up tile or how to refinish a staircase?

You might not know how to use a hammer and nails, but home improvement shows, and the like may inspire you to be more self-sufficient and consider home ownership.

Learning New Things

Constantly learning new things may not be considered a “life skill,” but it’s an important part of living life to its fullest. Your life may be great as is, but what’s the harm in learning how to do new things and what better way to learn than watching a movie or television show?

Television can teach you some sweet dance moves (remember Soul Train or The Grind ?). You can also learn how to paint with Bob Ross, or you may even learn how to play casino games when you watch some of the best gambling films like The Hustler or Casino.

Never be afraid to learn new things; that’s what life's all about. If you’re going to watch tv shows and movies, pick the ones that will enhance your life and teach you something new and exciting.
