My daughter is all about spongebob and i HATE spongebob !! I was in the living room with her the other day watching it and i notice some of the things they say "stupid" "idiot" "moron" and "dumb" when i heard them say that i turned it off. My daughter threw the biggest fit I told her that mommy wasnt gonna let her watch this filth the words that comes out of there mouths are bad!! I dont normally let her watch spongebob because i dont approve of it for her age group. She usually watches mickey mouse club house agent oso imagination movers dora and bob the builder. I just found out that my sister lets my daughter watch spongebob and thats how she became a spongebob freak.. anyways....My daughter has picked up the word Stupid and idiot (my daughter will be 2 on the 30th of this month) I was upset when she called me stupid and told me that i was an idiot. i told her that she cant be saying thos words because its bad ! So i made her stop watching it. come to find out my boyfriend would let her watch it when i wasnt home and when i found out i was upset about it. now my daughter calls people stupid and idiots and she gets in trouble for it. She has learned thos words from the show spongebob. I understand that she will eventually learn thos words when she gets older but at the age of almost 2 she is calling people stupid and idiots ? I know for a fact she didnt learn thos words from me my boyfriend or from my family because we dont use words like that infront of the children. One of my friends told me that i was over reacting and that i should let her watch spongebob i told her NO because i will NOT have my child learing thos nasty words. I dont talk like that in front of her and ill be damned if a cartoon is gonna teach my child how to call someone stupid or an idiot.. Do you let your child/children watch spongebob ? Has your child/children picked up these kind of words from watching this show ?
