family guy or simpsons? This is something that i have debated on because I have worked in childcare for seven years and i had some runins with some young 6 year old that had threatend to kill me and my baby while I was pregnant with my son. I confronted mother about it and she told me that her child watched Simpson and Family Guy. Is that an excuse or is that really how the behavior of her son is? What do you think?

To answer your question, I can see how her 6 year old learned that behavior from those shows, but his behavior should not be excused because of this. If the mom thinks this behavior stems from the shows, she should not let him watch them anymore and teach her son how to behave in REAL life.

Both shows are pretty bad, but I think Famiy Guy is way worse than the Simpsons. I occassionally let my young son watch the Simpsons - he likes Bart and Lisa and the baby. However, I cringe whenever a character points a gun at another character. I never noticed how many scenarios involving weapons are in the Simpsons until I started watching it with my son.
