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?

T.V. is entertainment. I am my children's loving, wise, helpful and competent example.

I may not block them but I do fully intend to limit exposure... I completely agree the characters are cruel, intolerant, and many other highly negative traits. Until I feel my dd is old enough to understand that what she sees is not how she should behave those types of shows will definitely face a huge bottleneck in my house.

 I think your right on. I allow my children to watch the preschool shows on those channels but thats it. I have watched Icarly and other shows with my nieces and have asked them where are the parents?

My least favorite show ever is spongeBob my kids know they are not allowed to watch that show because I hate it.

We actually turned over Dish back off we had it on less than a year because the shows were just stupid. We buy dvds and I know what the kids are watch and they cant turn something else on when I leave the room.
