As a mom, I influence my son as to which cartoon shows to watch. Right now, he loves Play House Disney's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Jojo's Circus, Bananas in Pajamas, Higgly Town Heroes and Bear in the Big Blue House. When he started watching tv, I veered him away from spongebob. I found the show too noisy for a kid under 1 year old. It's not that I don't like the show itself. What about you, are there kiddie shows you don't want your children to watch?

Spongebob is for older children isn't it. I am out of touch now as my kids are older, but yes there were certain cartoons I didn't like them watching such as Ed, Edd and Eddy. Although not for their sake but for mine as I cannot stand them. Even today my son at 13 yrs will watch the latter and I have to go out the room as it is so manic. I do agree that some cartoons nowadays are overloaded with noise and are over stimulating. I don't think kids get alot of quality quiet time anymore as even everywhere we go we are bombarded with music or TV. At only 1 yr, your baby needs mellow and repetitive sounds and visual stimulation not a mad character such as spongebob.lol!!

Oh yeah, I saw that Ed, Edd and Eddy show... Couldn't stand them either. Re spongebob, I thought I was just an over-acting parent when I "banned" my son from watching it. You see, many kids here in the Philippines love it and parents too! In fact, there are many kiddie parties here which are spongebob-themed.

south park - south park cartoon
I agree with you. I don't want my children to watch south park. I don't like the language and the violence they have showed in this cartoon. I thought we supposed to give good example to our children. What happened to a good old fashion walt disney cartoon ???

South Park is not for children anyway as it is broadcast in the evenings. I would not let my kids watch it when they were young but my son loves it now and I must admit I do find it funny myself.

I don't like my kids watching cartoon network shows---they are all fight scenes.

My kids know that they can watch EVERYTHING on the Disney Channel. On the other hand, cetain shows at Nickelodeon are NOT allowed in our home and the kids know how to screen what are "good" cartoons and "bad" cartoons without having me tell them. Nick Jr is fine...I let my toddler watch that the entire morning. But when the older siblings come home, Nick is NOT allowed to keep playing in the late afternoon. The shows there are SO not for children!

My daughter is only allowed one hour of tv a night. She is allowed a movie on the weekend. The only tv that she watches is PBS. I refuse to allow crap like Sponge Bob in the house. Kids have the rest of their lives to eat horribly and watch terrible tv and movies. While I can still control it I will not allow her to start now.

I would not let them watch south park, the simpsons and some cartoons at the cartoon network channel (philippines), i find them very violent, im also not into power puff too. Though they look cute and they are little girls they are always angry, i dont want that anger to rub off to my kids. Really miss Sesame Street and The Electric Company, these were shows that i grew up with.
