my girls only watch sesame street right now. They have seen fern gully and some of the old christmas specials on DVD too. DH let them watch Shreck too (on DVD). I am very picky about what they watch and how much screen time they have. I don't want them watching for more than an hour per day (and try to limit tv to 4-5 days per week too). I have school kids that talk about all kinds of shows that they really shouldn't be watching....family guy, robot chicken, south park....etc.... listening to them makes me very picky about tv for kids. I want to homeschool the girls too, so I don't want them used to sitting in front of the tv.
Well, heh...it seems since winter has hit, we have been watching a lot of TV. I almost always have it on for background noise (usually the news for most of the morning) - but we don't really watch any of the really cartoony stuff like Spongebob. Ben's favorites are Word World, Super Why, and The Cat in the Hat. He's also obsessed with the movie Cars. He definitely doesn't have the attention span to just sit and watch, but he does get a fair amount of screen time even though I swore he wouldn't. Plus his memory is TACK SHARP, so he literally could watch something once and talk about every detail of it for weeks and months...so it probably SOUNDS like all we do is watch TV all the time!
So, in summary, I am kinda a bad momma at the moment. :/
Landen only really watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse & Elmo..he has recently started watching a little Handy Manny and he fell in love with Charlie Brown during Thanksgiving and Christmas LOL. We won't let him watch no more than about 1 hour per day. We won't let him watch Sponge Bob.
Add us to the no Spongebob train. We've never let them watch it and they've never show a desire to want to watch it. They'll even tell you they can't watch it because their Mommy and Daddy say it's stupid. There's a lot the boys can't watch though we have been lightening up on Zach some since he's starting to understand that just because characters on shows do/say things or act in a certain way doesn't mean he can.
But Spongebob will never be welcome in my house. It's just too idiotic.
