My daughter will be six in a couple of months, and I'm wondering what other six-year-olds of parents here watch (those who do watch some television).
My daughter doesn't watch a whole lot, but she usually watches one or two programs a day. We don't allow her to watch anything with commercials, so it's mostly PBS and then we use the "on-demand" feature of our digital cable - HBO Family has quite a few cute shows, such as "Country Mouse," a show about two mice who travel to different countries and have adventures while learning about the culture. We have also discovered the Anne of Green Gables animated series on PBS, which we adore. We also watch "magic School Bus" when we can - my daughter loves science.
However, I'm having a hard time finding shows that aren't too babyish but are still entertaining and not full of the stuff so many kids' shows are full of - namely the assumption that all girls and boys hate each other, as do all siblings, and that teasing and bullying and being a wiseass are a normal and acceptable part of the grade school social scene.
