Why is everyone bitter towards this show?
I used to watch it and loved it. Of course I was nine, but it still entertained me. My four year old niece watches it and loves it. Just because it's not teaching our children how to learn math or their abc's, it's not horrible. It's teaching kids that it is okay to act like regular kids. It gives the parents some pointers, too. Chances are, that even if kids don't watch this, they're going to act like this anyway. It'd demonstrating normal behavior, and his parents aren't afraid to play with their children and it doesn't ashame them. How many parents do you know who would actually play hide and go seek with their child anymore? Or read them stories before bed? Or let them help out with things instead of just telling them to go and watch TV until whatever you are doing is done? Face it; parenting has gotten worse in the last ten years. I've watched it. My parents aren't exactly what they used to be either. They raised me and my twin sister perfectly, but they can't do it again, which is why my niece has a hard time. This show isn't at all bad, and you people need to understand this. If you don't like it just because it doesn't satisfy you from entertainment, that doesn't mean your child can't watch it either. Not all shows are meant to teach children to be modled citizens. I grew up on my parents way, and I'm not interested in any drug problems, drinking problems, smoking, and I am not sexually active. And I'm sixteen years old for crying out loud! In fact, I am proud to say that the niece I am raising everday is watching Caillou and learning that any bad situation can be overcome by everday solutions. It's taking normal behavior that all kids go through and bringing solutions up to solvem the unwanted behavior. I approve of this show 100%.share
