Barney

Does anyone NOT let their kids watch Barney? If so, why? My kids LOVE Barney..and we are taking them to see him in concert tomorrow. We were talking about it in the office today, and one of the girls (she doesnt have kids of her own)...stated that her friend doesnt allow her children to watch Barney. I was just wondering, what is the big deal?

Thanks for your imput ahead of time!

  • I know there were some issues with parents seeing Barney as a homosexual role model, it was going around about the same time people were having a problem with Teletubbies. I personally don't see it that way and my 2 year old LOVES Barney.

  • We let both of our kids watch him and they loved it. Kids don't see him as homosexual, that's an adult idea (and a pretty silly one at that). I don't know why anyone would have a real problem with letting their kids see Barney.
