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?

My kids love and only watch kids 13. Their choice.

My kids are teens-20's now. They've outgrown these channels I have stopped Secret Life and a few others on ABC Family channel. Those aren't family oriented shows and they promote and glamorize pre-marital sex.

 I agree, while I might watch them my children who are 2,3,5 and 6 are not allowed and will not be allowed to watch them for a very long time.

I limit the amount of what they watch because it's extremely annoying to me. You have to do your best to teach your children about manners, good behavior and the stuff you see on TV is not real... or you can just block all the channels and pretend they won't pick up the same crap from school, friends and the real world.

We like the disney junior shows except I object to the pirate one.  My ds like kiddie shows on pbs when he is home.  He is 13 but is special needs.

My favorite disney shows are Wizards of Waverly Place and Good Luck Charlie.Those are centered around families.
