Is anyone else having issues with the cartoons on disney channel?? The three few that I allowed my son to watch reciently struck me the wrong way. Mickey Mouse club house is the first with martian mickey. Were supposed to teach our children that aliens don't exist and a cartoon is doing just the opposite. The other problem with little einsteins with the monsters under the bed. I didn't see this one personally but my mom who was babysitting my son was watching it and was upset by it. Monsters are another thing that we don't want our children to be encouraged that they exist. We want them to have peace from God at bedtime and every other time of the day. Tinga Tinga tales is probably my biggest problem though. When I first saw the previews I had already made up that my son would never watch it. If you havn't heard of it it is a show about african folklore. From what I have learned in school Africans don't believe in one true God they believe in Idols and many gods. I don't know about you but I don't want my son to watch that.
Most kids don't watch to much tv especially my son but the little he does watch I dont want it filling his head with trash. About the only shows on Disney i dont have a problem with yet is chuggington and phineas and ferb. I really liked that Phineas and Ferb are very poilite and i caught this morning that they asked to be excused from the dinner table which isn't taught much these days.
I just wanted some other christian mothers imput on this subject. Thanks :)
