Re: I wanna know- What DON'T you let your kids watch????

no Dora, Spongebob, any live broadcasts. I only do DVDs and Netflix. There really is only a handful of things I let her watch. She is really loving My Big Big Friend lately.

Re: I wanna know- What DON'T you let your kids watch????

We're also a NO Spongebob house! Funny, I didn't know that show was so disliked by others. We also don't do Yo Gabba Gabba and other shows like that since they drive me bonkers. We were big on Calliou until I realized how whiney that kid is, so I'm trying to phase that one out as well. We mainly watch Thomas, Doc McStuffins, Chuck Trucks and Disney movies here. I try not to turn the TV on during the day, but they do watch a little TV in the evening when I'm fixing dinner or before story time.

We let him watch PBS in the morning. And we used to do Mickey mouse, or jake and the Neverland pirates, but we have strict rules about NO spongebob, no phineas( sp check) and pherb.

discovery chanel or nature shows are all right, and he likes bob Ross, and cooking shows. But he only gets an hour in the mornings, and then the occasional ( semi monthly) movie

TV nowadays is nothing but crap. I watch a few of the "teen" shows, like the secreet life, and bun heads, and I Can. Not. Believe. They are meant for youth! My kids definitely won't be watching them as they grow up. And I can't stand the teen shows on Disney and nickalodian . They put to much emphasis on becoming famous, and that is the last thing I want for my children!

......you should see what my posts look like BEFORE auto correct.

No Spongebob, Fred or Fish Hooks. We actually have those programs on parental locks so a code has to be entered to watch them. They actually don't watch many cartoons. DS likes Ninjago (sp?) and DD likes iCarly and the sort. As long as I don't see mannerisms/actions carrying over from the shows to my children's attitude/behavior, I'm ok with them watching.

Re: I wanna know- What DON'T you let your kids watch????

There's a lot, but the only one dd really wants to watch that I don't allow is My Little Pony. My dh's company does some work for their website so we let her look at it and see an episode, but WOW it's terrible!

I think it's really funny how many people do not like Spongebob! I was really surprised that there is a market for spongebob stuff in such small sizes (like 2T and such). My son doesn't know it's a show either. One time when he saw something with Spongebob he thought it was Swiss Cheese lol!

No Spongebob here...no Phineas and Ferb, My Little Pony or Monster and Robot. Those are the first that come to mind. I'm pretty strict about what my kids watch, even when it comes to Disney movies.

Everything is so violent or full of name-calling.

I'm not really crazy about Mike the Knight either, but my kids and DH watch that together.
