Baby Shark Dance for All
I wouldn't have guessed that the most watched YouTube video would be so inspirational
Out of curiosity, I recently decided to look up the most popular video on YouTube. It turned out to be a children's song of Asian origin in English called "Baby Shark Dance," with 12 billion views. Just take a moment to think about that. There are 8 billion people in the world, which means that nearly every family with children on the planet has watched that video. Twelve billion views is almost twice the world's population. In the video, a boy sings "daddy shark" and a girl sings "mommy shark." One thing I've noticed about the video is that blue is the predominant color since it takes place in the water. There are also other bright colors like yellow and pink in the "Baby Shark Dance" video. This song is great for toddlers because it teaches them about parents, grandparents, colors, and a little about the ocean.
I think that this video can be used to teach children who may be developing differently than others. What I like about the "Baby Shark Dance" video is that it's unbiased and doesn't highlight differences. It features both a boy and a girl, instead of just one gender. (However, it's worth mentioning that the boy wears blue and the girl wears pink, which could be considered close minded these days). Nonetheless, it helps children understand the difference between boys and girls. Children like happy and colorful songs and videos and what’s sad is that when we get older, we tend to lose that childhood love for fun. We shouldn’t forget about our young selves or childhood dreams, but I guess we almost have to because of society. But, we should never forget our parents, because they are the reason we are here.
