How different it was! Our mom would send my sister, my neighbor and I outside all the time. We rarely ever ever got to play inside. And we of course immitated what we watched. But, I can't say I remember myself, or anyone I knew...playing like I see now. And this is not a stab at parenting, this conversation has nothing at all to do with parenting. It is just what children's television has come to now. It amazes me the adult jokes, underlying meanings, weapons, violence, and "snotty-ness" I see & hear about on the shows geared towards younger children!
So....as I am thinking about these stories and seeing this play (which we strongly discourage at school....we tell our children to use their own brains, come up with their own superheroes or their own games & ideas) and I have to think back to all of the shows we watched as kids. Of course in their own way can be argued as bad influences, especially when referring to disney (which i personally LOVE...but am well aware of all of the controversies involving the disney films)....but I just think about how DIFFERENT they were. Fun, Musical, Light hearted. As I gave this some thought....I few old favorite of mine came to mind. Do these bring back memories for anyone? What is your opinion of this on going arguement? Let me know! (and i hope some of these bring you back to you childhood moments!)
