I let my 6 year-old girl watch shows from Sprout, Nogin, Nick Jr., Discovery Kids, WETA kids and the like. Some of her cousins and friends prefer to watch shows like ICarly, Hannah Montana, the Sweet life of Zack and Cody, etc.. I believe such shows are too grown up for her age, as they show disrespect towards adults, they show sentiment of 'crash' toward the opposite sex, kissing, boyfriend, girlfriend, peer-presure, etc...I've explained it to her and she's okay with it. However, my husband totally disagrees with me. I'm not trying to shelter my child, I just want her to live her age..to think about playtime, chuck-e-cheese, playdates, sleepovers, pizza, festivals, crafts, and all the fun that comes with her age...When I think she's ready or at age to understand certain shows, I will allow it (maybe 2 years or so down the road, it depends)........am I being too strict??? What do you let your children watch on TV?Answer Question

My youngest is in kindy and she watches some Disney at night with her brothers, but honestly she doesn't watch alot of it and I doubt she even fully understands it, she prefers sprout. She loves Hannah Montana but what 5- 7 y/o girl doesn't right now? the parts she pays attention to are the songs and there are funny moments that she understands. If you really watch the shows you will also see that the kids don't get away with treating the adults badly, and honestly that is a lesson i have no problems with my children learning.
My boys have been Disney addicts since before they were in school and I haven't had any problems with them learning bad things from the shows, my oldest is 11 I think I would have seen some signs by now. It boils down to parenting kids will only act on bad behaviors if you allow them to.
