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 agree with you. We usually only watch PBS for cartoons.

I let my kids watch all those channels....not that big of a deal I don't think. Its a big deal if you plan letting the television teach your child moralsand they way they should be. I am the parent here and that is my job. Not nickelodeon.   But I guess if you think about it...We watch max and ruby...where the HELL is Max and Ruby's PARENTS???!!!!!!!!!! =)

 I think that is television in general it just that prime time shows are geared more toward adults but they are in the same category as the shows on Disney nick and cartoon network. Dad is pretty much always shown as a buffoon but he is supposed to be the head of the house hold

We watch Disney Junior in this house and I see no problem with it. It's up to the parents to teach family values.

 I think you are a bit out there. You cannot keep your children from everything. Cause one day when they find out what it's really like out there in the world they are going to love it instead of being closed up and then they are going to go buck wild. You need help.

I find Nick Jr helpful in teaching kids manners and such. Cartoons are for entertainment purposes. At this point, you might as well put your kids in a bubble.

My family watch only an hour  or two of tv. We keep our kids very busy with after school activties. But, I have no problem letting them watch Disney or Nick. We also get a shows from uk disney. But, I have found it hard to find shows willing to watch and kids want to watch together. I do wish they would bring back that famiy show about the super hero family. I CAN'T remember the name. My kids and I can watch it together because it is perfect for kids with older kids.

What? You're the one teaching your kids? What a novel idea! Lol

 They don't bother me, but then, I'm a parent to my kids, I teach them the correct way to act and don't rely on the TV to teach them.
