Why can't the cartoons now days be like the cartoons back in my day! Some of the cartoons I used to watch have been remade or whatever you call it and are back on television now, but it's still not the same. Some of my favorites were: Care Bears, Inspector Gadget, The Smurfs, Pinky and the Brain, Top Cat, Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes, etc. I could keep going but there are so many! There are some cartoons that are on now that are good and decent. I find myself watching cartoons or at least listening to some of them while Camden is watching them! I can't believe some the stuff they say on some of them. For instance Spongebob is not a very good cartoon at all, but I do let Camden watch it. He LOVES Spongebob and probably has seen every episode 10 times and can tell you what is going to happen during the show! He might watch a little to much tv. But I have found myself listening to more of what the Spongebob shows are about and wow I about died. I really do not like it when Spongebob is saying That's so stupid, or Let's get naked, etc. Camden has come to me before and said Spongebob just said stupid and that's a naughty word, at least he knows better. I have also noticed that there are many sexual comments that Camden probably wouldn't catch on to but adults can figure out! We have some friends that do not let there kids watch Spongebob and some friends that do! Not every episode is that bad but I have seen many that I do not care for! Spongebob is not the only one but Camden just happened to be watching it when I started thinking about this! Some cartoons he watches are very good and some actually teach him things. I think to myself that yes he does or probably will hear all this stuff somewhere else. I believe this is how young children learn this crap and then if you throw in the shows that have violence makes it even worse. The shows that have violence is leading to teaching kids all about it and that is why we have all these shootings, stabbings, etc in the world! I think I will stop now as I don't want to have to go off about violence! No I do not believe I will take away certain cartoons but I am definetly going to limit how much he watches them! So like I said at the beginning of this post I wish we had cartoons like I used to watch!

We are in the same boat with Jenna! She loves Spongebob, but I don't think it's a very nice show, but I know she watches it at daycare sometimes. She, like Camden, will come and say to us that they said 'stupid' and that's a naughty word. At least she knows she's not supposed to say it. They do have a lot of good shows that do teach them a lot though.
