Sloth: Aim at Apathy

Mike Teavee, from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is the most well-known for slothfully watching television. During an interview with the press about finding his golden ticket, Mike's mother explained that he has never eaten dinner at the kitchen table because he eats his meals in front of the TV. As we get to know this character, we discover his deep passion for violent programming, including gangster and cowboy themed shows. During his interview, he explains that killing is what life is all about. With the rise in police shootings, gun violence and social protests within our communities, this little boy demonstrates that lethargic parenting can unknowingly teach children violent behavior.
