  • My kids watched Barney and I don't see a big deal with it.

  • sure, doesnt mean I have to enjoy it.. we don't seek it out but it's better than some of the junk on TV now with these little girls prancing around in little tiny shirts and skirts wearing make up and talking hormonal teen boys. my toddler doesnt need to see hannah montana or icarly kind of shows.

  • NO, I think it's creepy that he sneaks the kids off and that it's supposed to be a secret from adults. I don't let my kids watch any show where I don't feel like there is appropriate adult representation because I think it sends the wrong message.

  • Nope. We also ban Wiggles, Boobas, teletubbies and doodle bops.

  • My kids love watching Barney.  It's new to them and exciting so we're going to take what we can from it and then they'll find a different show to watch.  I find the show annoying but it's not for me, it's for them.

  • Barney is still on??? I wouldnt ban it, but I wouldn't go looking for it either. my 4 yr old doesnt hardly even like sesame street anymore..

  • I did when they were younger...what's wrong with Barney? Is the some Barney controversy I've missed? I thought it was a great show that reinforced friendship, loyalty, and good manners.

  • I didnt. Barney teaches your kid to be a follower, not a leader. Plus that song is enough to make anyone go postal.
