Statistics show that the average child will spend 18,000 hours in front of the television by the time they graduate from high school. That's 5,000 more hours than they will spend in school for 12 years. The only thing the average child will do more of is... sleep. This leads us to ask the question...what kind of media do our children consume most, and what effect does it have on them? Well, by the time the average child is 18 years old, they will have witnessed 16,000 murders on TV. MTV broadcasts an average of 35 references to adult immorality per hour. Multiple studies have shown that as the violence in media has increased, so has the real-world violence committed by minors. That's just starting to get into the statistics.
What is the point of all this, you ask? Well, the media our children consume is obviously having an effect on them. And thanks to today's trend away from Biblical values, it isn't having a good effect. Adventurous Tails is one of the few projects that seek to reverse this trend and reach children with good, high-quality content with biblical morals. And we do this using a matter that children love: dogs.
Adventurous Tails: Sugar, the first in the Adventurous Tails series, is a twenty-minute film short about Sugar, who lives a wonderful life with a family who cares for all her and her friends’ needs. One day, however, all that changes. Sugar and all her dog friends are off to the rescue in this delightful adventure about respect and a thankful attitude.
