Do you let your 7 - 9 year old girl(s)...

...watch the teen shows on Disney and Nickelodeon? I'm talking about Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, Shake It Up, iCarly, etc.? I let my girls watch some of them, but am worried the content is not age-appropriate. There is a lot of sarcasm, scheming, and romantic stuff. They absolutely love these shows, though (especially my almost 9 year old).

  • We don't get those channels, so it's not an issue at home, but when they go to either set of grandparents I leave it up to the grands - they know what's okay and not okay as far as other shows, and they watch with my girls, so I trust their judgement. I've never seen any of those myself (except the first couple years of Hannah episodes, which we do see reruns of at home on occasion, and I'm fine with those).
