Elementary age kids watching ...

Shows like Family Guy and American Dad?

This is a constant arguement between my husband and I. I don't think they're appropriate at all for our kids. Yet the second I'm out the door he lets them watch them! Our boys range from 8-11.

What do you ladies think? Am I being a stick in the mud or are these shows truly not appropriate for that age?


Thankyou ladies! I'm glad it's not just me. I don't let them watch that stuff while I'm home but unfortunately there's only so much I can control if I'm not in the house.  Looks like it will be another round with DH to try and get him to understand. Wish me luck!

I don't think they're appropriate for young kids and I don't think South Park is appropriate either.

My dd (10) doesn't like watching tv so it's not an issue, but those shows are a bit "adult" in nature. I wouldn't like her watching them.

Idt ds is into American dad.... but family guy is a nuisance for us. Ugh. Our sleep schedule is so off and I can't always monitor what he watches... though honestly at 11, I feel like he should 'know better' to not watch it bc mom said... but logically, I know he does certain things BECAUSE mom says no.

But no, I don't like them or approve of kids that age watching it.

I let my girls watch Bob's Burgers but I don't like them to watch Family Guy or American Dad

We are lenient about what we let DS watch. He's watched those shows since he was just a few years old. Although not on a regular basis. And I think American Dad only maybe once. That show is pretty tame imo.

I have a 3ds, 10dd, 13ds we don't watch those shows because they aren't made for kids. However we did YouTube a few scenes from the show that are hilarious...

Those are cartoons for adults, not children. I would be so upset.

That is a no. Adult cartoons are not appropriate for my 8 and 9 year olds.
