  • I let my 5 yr. old watch anything he wants on sprout and he just got wind about Bakugan at school so i let him see 1 show a day on Cartoon network. I let my 8 yr. old daughter watch icarly and the discovery channel also animal planet (sometimes, if not about mating), and the baby is not allowed to watch TV he is only 10 months old and i heard that watching tv at this age could rewire his brain.. they link early tv watching to ADHD.

  • We don't have cable but they can watch whatever they want... They love Super Y, Sesame Street, Blue's Clues, Family Guy, The Simpsons, and Dragon Tales...

    The only thing they are NOT allowed to watch is Mr.Rogers... That guy was just sick!

  • Pretty much whatever. They usually choose age appropriate shows but I don't censor much (mainly graphic, realistic violence, gratuitous sex and excessive cussing). They are allowed to watch G-PG-13 movies for the most part and can watch some R movies (very rare but there are a couple they've seen). Just the other day my 7yo son watched The Patriot with me. He loves anything about wars so it caught his interest.
