So I had a friend ask me the other day about Sponge Bob, not sure how we got on the topic but we did. My response was that my children do not watch Sponge Bob, they watch PBS Sprout and other educational type channels. My friend replied, “oh you are one of ‘those’ moms huh?!”
What is that suppose to mean? LOL I wondered, so I asked and the response was that there is nothing wrong with it, my friend didn’t mean to offend me, thinks it’s great that I am such a great mom, but really I don’t let my kids watch Sponge Bob at all? I replied that occasionally they can watch Sponge Bob, I am not a total stickler about cartoons, but if my children are going to have their TV time I prefer it to be educational.
My two older children are 7 and 3, they love watching How It’s Made on I believe the Science Channel. They have learned so much from it and have fun telling all their friends and family members about the show. There is nothing wrong in my eyes of encouraging children to learn through a variety of resources and with technology advancing so rapidly we must try to keep the focus on education.
So I wonder, do you watch Sponge Bob Square-pants with your children or let them watch it? Why or why not? I let mine watch it on occasion, it’s just not something that you will find on our TV often, hey they do own the movie, which has lost itself in our house … darn 😉
Make it a Happy Day!
