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?

Good for you! CN is not allowed in our house and the other two are closely monitored. In a couple of months, we are having the cable shut off and just using DVDs instead.

 They've been blocked at our house for years and even my older kids say the shows they have now aren't anything like those they use to have and they feel sorry for their neice and nephew and other kids that don't get to watch the good shows like Bear in The Big Blue House,PB & J Otter,Blues Clues, Lamb Chop,Big Comfy Couch(?),Bananas in Pajamas,etc...

I don't think those channels are that bad but there are certain shows on that aren't meant for younger children.

Love them and so does ds. Get over yourself. You're the parent so it's up to you to teach your kids family values not some fake show. They are there to entertain not to teach u how to be a family.

Children absolutely learn from entertainment, they learn from EVERYTHING they're exposed to. They're absorbing it all. If you think otherwise, you're making a mistake.

Eh, we don't censor anything but porn or shows that depict nudity in a vulgar or overly sexual manner (no True Blood for the kiddos). I teach my children their values and that television, music and movies are strictly entertainment unless it is a documentary or book on CD. Books can be entertainment or educational but we still rarely censor them.

I only wish I had done it sooner. When he watched Blues Clues, Little Bear, Caillou, that was different. I wish I would have done this as soon as he outgrew those shows.

Eh, you make the rules for your house.

We don't watch any Nickelodeon channels in our house... But all Disney channels are ok. (Disney, Disney Junior and Disney XD).

They're still impressionable and are shaped in someway but what they're exposed to. I talk about things he sees on tv with DS too but that alone isn't enough, IMO.

I think it's your home and you can choose what your kids watch and don't. I find value in some shows, not in others. I limit to what I think is appropriate/ok for them to watch. That's MY job as their parent.
