Do you think Degrassi is inappropriate ?

Do you think the Canadian show Degrassi is inappropriate for young kids ? I baby-sit and I hear kids as young as 9 and 10 talking about the show and some of the stuff those kids get into to ( one of the kids was talking about this girl named "Holly" stripping at a school dance, kids having sex, drinking, doing drugs etc..) . I was shocked to found out that this type of show comes on Nick. I've never seen the show, but is it really appropriate for kids ?

  • Yes it is inappropiate for young kids. My kids are 12, 10, 9 and 7 and are not allowed to watch it. I don't even think I will let my 12 year old watch it when she turns 13 because I don't want my other daughters to see it. I change the channel even when I see the commercials and they are in the room. It is for teens but the subject matter is so mature some adults probably watch it.

  • i thought the show was great, it's a more mature show but it opens up the topics for PARENTS to talk to their child about what's going's better to be early than too late in that sort of situations
