Do you let your young Teens/Pre Teens.....

Do you let them watch this Teen Nick crap? There is a show on called Marvin Marvin (I think), and I am standing in the kitchen and over hear some of the stuff being said. Boy: You're cute, wanna make out? Girl: Ugh, High School Boys. Girl gets a phone call and answers, Girl: NO! I do not want to make out with you!


Wtf? I don't have teens or even pre teens (sponge bob just went off, and I haven't changed the channel), but I don't think I would let my young kids watch Teen Nick. Am I being weird, or are shows like this just the norm?

I don't let teen nick on in my house. We will stick to spongebob, my little pony, and powerpuff girls.

nah it's not bad but i feel where your coming from. in my opinion i think teen nick has become so stupid, idiotic, and educational that i wouldn't drain my kids mind with that goofy b.s. personally i never liked it either as a kid i watched cartoon network and anime shows.

if he wanted to watch it, he could. I don't really monitor it ,but Degrassi has gotten real raunchy since it's days in the 80s.

lol I'd let my 6yo watch it. He knows what making out is.

Some parents are too helicopter about everyyyything.

I LOVE Degrassi. It touches on issues with teens that it seems too many parents are too scared to touch on themselves. I like that there's something like Degrassi for the parents who don't want to do the job themselves.

I love that it is a show that ultimately teaches to be accepting of people regardless of circumstance.

Quoting Pink.Sunshine:
