Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Does your 4 1/2yr old still watch Barney?  Mine loves it still.  Should I start turning it off?  Is he too old for it?  For reference he likes things like most of the shows on Sprout, Fireman Sam, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, all of the Disney JR shows, Thomas the Train, Caillou, Land Before Time, Super Why!, Diego/Dora, and LeapFrog movies.  And he's not allowed shows like Spongebob or shows/movies with guns like CARs 2.

I think it's okay if he still likes Barney. It's not like that's all he watches.

My sons don't really watch much TV. We do use the Barney clean up song when it's time for them to clean though. I don't see a problem with him watching it though. If he likes it he likes it.

My husband had the same concern, back when. So, I suggested he ask our peditirican about Barney. He highly recommended Barney.  Barney is more than his color of purple and green.  He teaches children about sharing, caring, patience, and family values, etc....  My daughter loved Barney too!    My husband, after speaking to our doctor, saw Barney in a different light.   Sitting here I am thinking of his favorite song:  I love you, you love me, we're a happy family, with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you, won't you say you love me too!...

I'd let him watch it. He'll move on, on his own time.
