There is a reason we do not let our children have access to electronics during the week, and limit no only the amount of time they spend on it on the weekends but also what they have access to.
The Internet is nasty.
TV is nasty.
Even some music is nasty.
Yes, we cannot shield our children from these forever, but I feel that a responsible parent doesn’t just let their kid(s) have access to the remote or a web browser and let them loose.
Deep down inside, I can’t help but worry for future generations when there is way too many shows like “Dating Naked”, “Sex Sent Me To The ER”, and “I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant”, and not enough shows like “Growing Pains”, “Brady Bunch” and “Full House”.
Honestly, is there anything worse than “TMZ”? Yes. “TMZ Live”.
I think a good balance of TV shows for kids include the original reality TV, sports, cooking shows, pretty much anything on TVO or to do with animals, history or the planet.
Cartoons are okay too, but like sweets, should be taken in moderation and never before bed time.
Now excuse me while I click through Kardashians, Honey Boo Boo’s and Millionaire Matchmaker looking for something to watch.
