I just bring on the nature shows. Even the ones not oriented towards kids. She is fascinated by them. I think they're much healthier than any of the other kid fare that's out there. Even the wholesome ones fuck your kids up in ways you can't quite identify until it's too late.
Ours was/is really into "The Fresh Beat Band," which is really a nice clean show about a bunch of high school students who play musical instruments in a band and sing and dance and learn lessons about sharing and being kind etc etc. Good clean fun.
The problem is, since it's late teen actors playing it up for kids, the acting is really exaggerated and dumbed down. When someone is sad, they sigh heavily and put on an exaggerated frown, hang their shoulders, and say stuff like "that reeeeealllly hurt my feeeelings." Frowny. Face.
Well, sure enough, now my kid thinks that's how you're supposed to act when you take away the tambourine she's been using to smash away at your hifi. She's just gotten really over dramatic. All from, IMO, watching these goofy ass shows that at first blush seemed wholesome and positive.
Beware of that shit. Be very fucking ware.
