My kids enjoy Wild Kratz, Dino Dan, Henry Danger, Big Time Rush, The Odd Squad and a few others on Nick. My son has them set to record.

No, we have never banned any kid shows. My boys are now 11 & 14 and they are turning our to be wonderful young men. So, I guess the TV did no harm.

It's funny how we were complaining about the shows on ABC "Family," and now they have acknowledged the dissonance and changed their name to Freeform.
Oh yeah - ABC Family didn't show anything remotely family friendly!

I banned nothing when my children were young. I preferred that they watch programming not specifically directed at children - and I am not a fan of animation, on a variety of levels.

We did like "Veggie Tales", though. And my wife and I also found that series to be funny.

We go mostly by the rating. No shows are out-right banned, but we don't let them watch TV-14 usually. Sometimes "iffy for 13+". The oldest is 12. We have the satellite set so a code needs to be entered for more adult ratings.

When they were younger they watched Sprout (PBS), dinosaur and other science shows, then Phineus and Ferb, iCarly, Good Luck Charlie. They do watch Disney channel shows. I can only take so much, and make them turn off anything with Ariana Grande. She sounds like an idiot and I can't stand listening to her. Girl Meets World seems to always have a lesson of some kind. I don't mind that one.

We watch The Middle together as a family.

Nothing is banned as yet for my 5 year old. She's into Tom and Jerry big time at the moment, both the classic version and the newer ones - she's watching right now actually. Apart from that she enjoys Doc McStuffins which I hate because of the catchy songs but I let her watch, and Henry Hugglemonster which I like for the Britishness and Art Attack which irritates me for some reason but its nice for her to take an interest in art. I wish she would regain her interest in Alfred J Kwak as I love that cartoon, its interesting on so many levels, quite adult in many ways with themes of dictatorship, apartheid etc.

I have never restricted my son from kid shows. Hes 11 now and I have never had any problems. He knows the shows are not real and he was taught how to behave around others. I really could not see my son acting any differant just because he watched some kids show. He mostly watches simpsons, family guy,adult swim shows along with some that I dont know the names of. Maybe it's because he was never sheltered growing up from much of anything so he knows how to take it in without acting like the tv show.

Oh yeah my kid loves to watch Simpsons with us - whenever she makes a mistake she says "D'oh!"

I have a 6-year-old. He does not watch any television by himself. Occasionally with me he will watch and inning or two of a Yankees baseball game, but that is it.

Last Thanksgiving I had a very hilarious discussion with a group of small kids about this show and all of the kids hate Ruby and love little Max. They had some very interesting observations about this show (where the heck are their parents?) Anyway, my little one actually watches it sometimes and I don't have a problem with it. I let her watch anything on Nick Jr and all of the PBS toddler shows.
