I let my 2 yr old dd watch NickJr at night. Shows like Little Bill, Little Bear, Wonder Pets... they calm her down before bed. Tonight however. I was aware that NickMom would be taking over - AFTER 10 pm. At 9pm, they start. I think "Oh well, it's a new thing. Let's give it a try. It's on NickJr, how bad could it be?" O....M.....G. Cussing. Making jokes about the human anatomy. Racist jokes. So, my 2 yr old, after 10 minutes of hearing this (I was in shock... I had to be sure I wasn't finally losing it and that my ears did NOT deceive me), she comes in and (while giggling) tells me "circle shishin!" (circumsion) and "pee-is!" (penis) and oh yes... the "s" word. Now, we don't cuss in my household - EVER. Not a "oh, when I'm mad, I might say THIS" kinda thing.. No, we never cuss. So to hear this from my child - or anyone's child! - really shocked me! Yes, I do watch South Park and several adult-themed shows where cussing and rude language and behavior IS seen/heard, BUT not with my 2 yr old. I am NOT the only mom who feels this way (just read the posts all over NickMom's fb page).... This is a CHILDREN ONLY channel. There should NOT be cussing on it. If it were OWN, Lifetime, or any other channel, I would tolerate it. NOT NickJr. Instead, right now, I've resorted to Baby First TV.. my 2 yr old is less than happy over this, and NOT ready to calm down for story time and bed.
