Have you ever stopped and taken a good look at children’s programming to determine if it is a child friendly as you think? When was the last time that sat down with your children to watch some of their favorite shows to make sure that they are appropriate?

What would have once been considered adult only themes have made their way into children’s programming. As sadly the age of innocence is being eroded away, and few people even seem to realize it.
