Are Your Children Old Enough To Watch Their Favorite TV Shows?

“It’s just hard not to listen to TV: it’s spent so much more time raising us than you have.” Bart Simpson

Today every home has at least one TV, and shockingly more than 50% of daycare centers also have one playing all day long. But most TV stations show programs designed for kids and adults at all times of the day, and given many kids are allowed to watch the TV unsupervised, that means they will discover content themselves, which will often be inappropriate.

AreTheyOldEnough.com was actually started because of a show called Big Bang Theory. On the surface it is an innocent sitcom, and my kids told me they loved watching it. But it deals with subject matter that not all moms and dads will agree is appropriate, including sexual content, mature language and grownup themes.
