My question is, do you let your toddlers watch Spongebob Squarepants?

Well my son is 2 almost 3 and I have done some research on that show and they came up with that kids who watch Spongebob Squarepants become slower then children who read or watch shows like Dora, scooby-doo or anything like that.

My in-laws have a problem because I won't let him watch it and their over grandkids do. When they put it on for the rest of them I will take him out of the room.

Dd watches it. She's extremely smart. She also watches the interactive Nick Jr shows.

 I don't even let my almost 10 year old watch that crap.

Please, though, post this supposed research that shows that it makes kids slow. I would love to see that.

I think it is what you teach your children about the show, not what they watch

My 6-year-old watches it. He reads at a 4th grade level and is in Gifted.

DD is 2, SD is 4, and SS is 6. They are not allowed to watch Spongebob. DH thought I was crazy and didn't agree with me until I got online and found multiple links showing why Spongebob shouldn't be watched by kids. He agrees with me now.
