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?

Media Literacy is an important topic. Block TV shows usually doesn't change much - talking about them does.

As I said before, how many times do we need to talk about them? He knows how I feel about these shows. How many times do we need to have the same discussion about the same shows? Continuing to allow the same shows to be watched over and over just becomes condoning it.  It's an irrefutable fact that exposure shapes children.

My ds dosent watch much tv. He'd rather play outside. When he does watch tv he watches goosebumps or doc mcstuffins.

As a kid, I read the Goosebumps books. I loved them. I didn't know there was a show.

If she is blocking these 3 channels what else is she censoring in her kids lives?

I don't have an issue with the content, I must admit though, I was taken back at NBC family (or is it abc) channels choice to air Pretty Woman. How is that a family movie!?

I will agree that some shows are bit much. However, as a parent it's YOUR job to sit down and talk with your children when you see something you feel goes against your morals or beliefs. I allow my 5 year old to watch certain shows SUPERVISED or episodes I've already watched. Also, I don't sit my child in front of the TV for hours, I believe TV time should not only be supervised but limited.

Ya they also had a show in the 90's to go alone with the books. It's on the hub channel. I had all the books. I gave them to a little girl that live down the hall before we moved. Never should of given them away. I kick myself now. Oh well.
