Children and TV

I am the kind of parent, who monitors what my children watch, either on tv or movie wise. I believe that our children are very impressionable, and as such it is our job as parents, to make certain that they are watching what is appropriate for their age group. I know that Tree House is a safe program for my daughters to watch, and I feel confident that my daughters can learn from the shows that they watch on that channel. Do you monitor what your child(ren) watches? Do you let them watch shows or movies that are rated higher than their age group?

I agree with you. I especially don't like the language on alot of programs. My children are older than yours, 15 and 17, but we still monitor what they watch. Just because they are older than 13, doesn't mean I think a PG-13 movie is appropriate.

Thanks for the response and I am very sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you. I have started monitoring their shows a little more carefully than before and I have to say that I have managed to teach them that they don't need to use language like that and that shows that do, aren't worth watching anyway, they seem fine with it. In fact recently we have all stopped watching so much tv, instead we have started going outside and starting crafts and such. I have found that it has brought I closer to each other, and we love it. Thanks again for taking the time to respond to my discussion, hopefully I will be faster to respond back. Thanks again.

I absolutely agree with you. My children watch the age appropriate shows for their ages. All the shows that come on NickJr. Blues clues, dora, diego, little bear etc... My nephews are allowed to watch older things than their ages and they already curse and know things they should not have a clue about yet! Its really sad to me...
