I think Nick jr is fine, alot of the old cartoons are great, some of the newer ones I don't like, like Power Rangers and Adult Swim, and definatly not South Park.

charminar -  One of the greatest historical monu,ent of hyderabad,,
My son is 5 and has begged for a tv. He doesn't watch much so I think it's because his sister has one. We agreed to get him one for kindergarten grad.

That's ok. I live in Brooklyn,NY. Noggin is a channel with no commercials from 6am until 6pm. The shows included are Dora, Blues Clues, Franklin, Little Bear, etc. My daughter loves it. Each show that is on teaches something different. I like the fact of my daughter watching shows that are educational, not just entertaining.

If you have to let them watch TV, Sesame Street has been around for a long time and has a proven track record. Whatever you let them watch, sit down and watch with them to make sure the show if supporting the values you want your children to have. Then make your own judgement. But please don't let them watch too much. An hour a day is more than enough. As a kindergarten teacher I know how many kids have spent their young lives in front of a tv set. These kids don't want to do anything active. They have no imaginations, and they want to be entertained every minute of every day.

If she loves to run and play, then let her do just that. Limit the TV time, especially cartoons.

Keep the tv at nickoloaden or however it is spelled ...lol and the cartoon network. Disney channel is great for kids because they show cartoons and real live shows also. You might remember high school musical on disney huge ratings cd sold millions and kids all over the world fell in love with it. I enjoy some of those kids shows myself from time to time ...lol.

Hiya! I have a 4 yr old son and he has learned soo much from Noggin as well, and Nick Jr. Dora the Explorer and Blues Clues were a blessing,, he is a very smart boy..he knew his ABC's, counted to 10, and knew all his shapes including hexagons, trapazoids and all those by the time he was 2 yrs old..Also PBSKids is a wonderful channel.But I wont let him watch powerpuff girls..or any of those fighting cartoons..he was hurting the kids in teh neighborhood by doing what he watched..so make sure ya monitor what cartoons they watch..Hope I was some help!!:)

Any children movies, children programmes, cartoon network are most than sufficient for children. There are some social humurous family serials which they can view.

I think Arthur, Dora the Explorer, and Care Bears are all great shows for children to watch.

I love Noggin during the day for my toddler. It is full of educational programs and in between those programs there are plenty of quick educational clips teaching them how to identify shapes and colors and such. I also like some nick programs such as Blues Clues and Dora. I wish there was more educational programs though for my 6 year old instead of cartoons that I think are more mind numbing then mind engaging.
