Dh and I have been debating about this. Ds has been watching it for years, he's now 7. Yesterday we were going to the beach and ds says we should get a ticket to go to bikini bottom. Dh was floored and couldn't believe that came out of his mouth and said WHAT? Ds said that is where spongebob lives and said it would be cool if he could go there in real life.
Just a little info on our family. We have very strong religious beliefs, and monitor what he watches and listens to. we dress conservatively and won't go to beaches/pools when there are people there, usually early in the morning is the normal time for us, so that way we are not surrounded by half naked people. I know it's impossible to avoid completely, but we try to avoid it when we can. We also don't drink, smoke, swear,etc and don't surround ourselves with people that do. I don't care if people choose to live other ways and respect their decision, it's just not the way we choose to live.
Anyways, DH doesn't want him watching it anymore, as there are episodes that he was already not allowed to watch because of content, but now because the town is called bikini bottom. He said it's not appropriate. To me it's not a big deal, and the decision has been left to me to make ugh. I feel bad for ds if we take away all his spongebob dvds (dh will replace it with something else), because he's been watching it so long and really enjoys it.
So my question is..... I've noticed a lot of moms won't let their children watch this show, can you give me your reasons as to why you feel it's not appropriate? Maybe I'm missing something.
