As watching sky1 and there seems to be a lot of sweary programmes on in the middle of the day and I've stopped DS (8) watching the simpsons after tea as it seems to be getting worse and worse for it. I feel like complaining as I don't want to have to listen to swearing in the middle of the day, especially when my kids can hear it!
I have like huge judgy pants about this. We haven't moved off of the kids channels this holiday for fear of finding something inappropriate.
My biggest bug bear is The Simpsons. I don't know If I've just become more sensitive to it as DS has gotten older and is more aware of the content or if indeed it has got worse. Swearing has definitely crept in there though.
Dc used to go to CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health something)and one day we were in the waiting room with colouring books and toys and stuff, room full of kids with probs and the tv in the room had JK on loud.
i went to the receptionist and said 'excuse me, do you know JKs on in a room full of young people with behaviour/mental issues? is this helping?' she didnt realsie and went in there and switched to cbbc.
This afternoon, DP was channel hopping and stopped on "outnumbered" on one of those repeat only channels for maybe a minute. Ugh at the language,why do they show these programmes at any time of the day, when they are clearly meant to be for adults only? We hopped on to Cbeebies pretty quickly. It drives me mad. It's not just the language - they show Buffy at midday ffs (and I love Buffy but it's not exactly midday viewing is it?).
wheres Mary Whitehouse when you need her? come on peeps, we need another one!
i hate these progs when kids are in it and hearing seeing language and stuff. like on eastenders or something. i know theyre prob told its only acting but.......a baby in the arms of a kat slater while shes screaming or something? (and not a doll, a moving breathing living baby).
even Dr Who gets a bit below the belt sometimes.
its not the 50's or whatever, theres no Waltons/little house on the prairie sweetly stuff any more but i think its gone too far to the other extreme?
We often have BBC R4 on in the day and sometimes the language on there is a bit fruity but that doesn't bother me, nor does it bother me that much if there is inference to sexual behaviour but I get very angry at the way violence and abuse is normalised on pre-watershed TV.
