Can we take a note from Mr. Rogers?

Mister Rogers

It may be painful for us to see our children rejecting ideas that are important to us and adopting others that could never be comfortable for us. But out of that difference may come two important values -- tolerance and an awareness that people who disagree can love and respect each other.

  • I agree, but I also think there's an age kids have to reach before they really even know what their own ideas/values are, as opposed to parroting everything they have heard, read, etc. from their friends or parents.

  • thats great! Mr Rogers still comes on just really really early in the mornings. i caught it once when my DD was an infant and teething and screaming...the second he started talking she was mesmerized and stopped crying. i dont know what it is about him, but ive always wanted to give him a big hug...and i HATE hugging ppl!!

  • I enjoyed Fred Rogers, and still do. As do my children. I've never understood how one could be "creeped out" by him though. True, he is a fairly effeminate man, perhaps that is what made you uncomfortable. Being rather gender neutral myself, it never bothered me.

  • Mr. Rogers was NEVER condescending. He talked to children on a child's level and he was a kind, wonderful man. He is greatly missed, wish we had someone like him on children's television today.

    He was condescending and creepy!  My kids didn't like him either.
