I blocked the disney channel

Posted by   + Show Post

and Nick and Cartoon Network. I think these channels are disgusting. The shows characters are rude, shallow, immature, vulgar, selfish, stupid. They don't promote any good qualities. You rarely see parents or portrayal of family lifestyle. When there is a parent figure around, he/she is usually an incompetent, helpless buffoon, who is a blubbering mess over some issue they can't solve independently.  They're not like the old Cosby Show and Family Ties, where the family was valued and vital. Parents were loving, wise, helpful, and competent. 

What do you think about the content on these channels?

I dont have them blocked and i dont really see anything wrong with it, nothing that i think my kids would actually get out of it or start acting out bc of it or anything, but i see what your saying, i think the same thing. The kids run everything in the shows and the parents are always silly, or stupid, or like you said incompetent.

I think your overreacting. The Disney Channel has some really good shows during the day. Nick Jr has some good ones during the day to. You just have to monitor what they watch.
