What are your thoughts on her, her show and her dad on the show?

My 8 yr old likes Hannah Montana, but I don't allow her to watch too much of it. I don't think there is anything wrong, I've not seen anything bad in the show. But Hannah Montana is going through alot of boyfriend stages, and I don't really think it's age appropriate for my 8yr old. When she does watch it, we watch it together and talk about what's going on. I think it's a great discussion starter though so when we do watch it, great things come from it.

Personally I'm sick of all of the fast-talking, disrespectful kids on tv. After my then 7 yr old "well, duh! ed" me I had to explain to her that kids did not talk to their parents in that way and that the kids on tv were actors who were told what to say. After that Hannah was banned from my house, only recently has my daughter (now 9) been allowed to watch. I watch with her and try to clear up any misconceptions the show might be putting out there. Now that the actress and character have grown (I think she is 16 now) I think I might be shutting her down again - the character is where she should be in life... but not my daughter's life.

My children very very rarely are given the priviledge of watching television and when they do I am right there watching it with them to monitor what is being seen and heard. 99% of the shows on television are complete trash and no parent should allow their child to watch it. Cartoons on television for instance Dora, Thomas and Friends, and Handy Manny (all of which I have watched without my children to screen whether I thought they were appropriate) express rigid gender seperation: girls like pink, ballet dresses and dolls, and boys like blue, anything with wheels and hard hats. Another example is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse gender roles here don't seem to have evolved at all since Uncle Walt was in his pomp. Daisy Duck and Minnie Mouse clatter around in oversize heels and flutter their eyelashes like extras from Mad Men. On another note, children's shows that are not cartoons are equally as trashy. They teach young girls that to be "pretty" you must be thin and wear make-up. It teaches young girls that at a very young age they should be interested in boys and having boyfriends. For boys it teaches them that they are supposed to be strong and dominant and not show emotions. I could go on and on and on, but I will stop for now. I just think that parent should be finding other things to occupy their children rather than allowing them to sit in front of a television. Really what is it teaching them that is worth learning....in my opinion NOTHING.

I love HM! My 10 year old does too. We watch laugh and discuss what happened. I think there is a lot of humor and love in the program - at least in the first few seasons. I havent seen the older shows. We are ROKU ing the seasons. It is fun.

My daughter (8) loves Hannah Montana. She doesn't watch the show. She did watch the show a few times but was not interested. She loves the music, toys, and clothes. I haven't had nay problems with her picking up negative behavior from the few the she watched.

My 6 year old watches Hannah Montana all the time and listens to her music. There is nothing wrong with Hannah Montana. I have never seen or heard her disrespect her father. Saying that problems children are having comes from a tv show is ridiculous. If they pick it up from there then as a good parent you sit them down and tell them why it isn't appropriate and then that should end it. I have not had a problem with my little girl from Hannah Montana.

What about Zoey 101- My daughters and her friends all know she had a baby. That was a big conversation topic in our house, explaining she is acting like a younger girl in the show versus real life. My 8 year old has even informed me she is having another baby???

All 3 of my girls love Hannah Montanna, they watch the show, listen to the music, have the clothes and accessories. I have not had any negative effects show up with my girls from watching the show. It is kinda the same as HSM isn't it??

Honestly i think it is okay for older teens. I don't like my younger girls watching it. It is to much about boys and which boy they "like". I have met other moms that have stopped their daughters from watching the show. They told me that their daughter all of a sudden was "boys this... boys that". their daughters were 10/11 yr olds. I think the show makes younger girls think that they have to have a boy in their life to be cool.

I try not too. Seriously, it isn't near as bad as the other programming out there. Not anything I want my kids to watch but then again, I don't really like for them to watch anything on TV. None of these "kid shows" are respectful or healthy for the child and his/her interactions with others.
