10 thoughts on “Watching Sponge Bob Squarepants”

  1. We not only watch it with her, sometimes my hubby will watch it w/o her as well. I don’t go that far. It’s one of her shows that I don’t mind, bu I won’t watch it if she’s not around. It’s bad enough that I have an opinion on the characters. Patrick is mean…& dumb.

  2. I’m with you. When my kids were younger they mostly watched educational channels. Now that they are a little older (13 & 11) I gave in and unblocked the Disney channels. In some ways I wish I hadn’t. But they often choose to watch educational channels instead. The Science Channel, Animal Planet and Discovery Channels are big favorites. Oh, and we have the Sponge Bob movie too, and it’s amazing how lost it gets. Hmmm. Strange.

  4. I don’t mind if my kids watch shows with no educational content, since don’t believe tv is a very good way to learn anyway. Even PBS should be considered entertainment, rather than education. I wouldn’t give my kids carrot cake for dinner just because it has carrots in it, either. When I let them watch tv (30 minutes a day, if we have time), I do it with the understanding that it doesn’t have any real value except as recreation.

    OTOH, there is no SpongeBob in this house. We have a no-potty-humor policy, and SpongeBob is pretty crude. So are a lot of other “kid’s shows”, so we screen carefully before our kids watch.

  5. We don’t even have cable or satellite. But when we did, my son didn’t really care to watch TV at all. He wanted to play. On occasion, he goes with his big sister to her babysitting job and gets to watch Spongebob and other shows. And when he spends the night at my moms, he gets to watch PBS in the morning. I have seen the show and don’t really care for it. I actually like the educational kids programming on PBS and Noggin. I think they are cute. So if we ever get cable again, he’ll be allowed to watch that stuff. But as far as Spongebob goes…I just find it annoying and would prefer that my son does not watch it or anything like it. Just me though…I know that everyone is different.

  6. I’ve got 4 kids, ages 14, 11, 7, and 4. We are big time Spongebob fans and I will even watch him when the kids aren’t around. But that isn’t all we watch. We also watch Disney and PBS, they do have great educational shows. No, SB isn’t educational, but he is very entertaining, that is for sure. Since I have older kids and little ones, we mix it up.
