    Moms of 6-to-8-year-olds: Want to talk TV?

    I'm working on a story for the Globe about the TV habits and preferences of six-to-eight-year-olds. Have your kids abandoned PBS for SpongeBob and Hannah Montana? And if so, do you care? If you'd like to talk about it, email me at weiss@globe.com. Thanks! - Joanna Weiss

    My 8 year old long ago abandoned Nick Jr. and PBS.  Spongebob, Suite life on Deck, iCarly, etc. is his domain now.  Older siblings have not helped the situation.   I definitely care!!!  I'm ready to turn in my cable box and end my comcast subscription, due to rising prices and too much bad tv for my kids!!!

    My 6-year-old abandoned PBS far too soon.  That last show he liked on there was Martha Speaks - which is a great kids show.  I think he sensed its educational nature.  I will admit I don't miss Calliou. 

    Somehow he found Spongebob which is a show with no redeeming value.  He is a boy so I think he likes all the bodily functions references.  Besides Spongebob he likes icarly, which is not bad and The Penguins of Madagascar which even I have to admit is pretty funny. 

    Mostly I just try to limit how much he watches rather then battle him over what he watches.
