TV show suggestions for dd (9)?

Postby Sue on Wed May 02, 2012 3:48 pm

She has just discovered "Shake it Up" on the Disney Channel - sigh, our first foray into TV for her age group, I suppose? Before this she was a self-proclaimed TV hater.

Can parents of same-age girls suggest similar, tame, cute, safe, appropriate shows?

We PVR anything so time/day isn't an issue :)

Austin and Ally has my almost 9 year old addicted. Have to say I can barely watch because of the cheese factor. It is on a lot. Mostly the Disney Channel.

Calum Worthy (red headed boy) is from Victoria. His mom runs the Pace Musical program in SD62.
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.

My 8 and 10 year olds both love 'Good Luck Charlie', 'iCarly' and 'Phineas and Ferb'. I haven't watched much of iCarly, but Good Luck Charlie is pretty funny, as is Phineas and Ferb. That being said, you may want to watch an episode or 2 first if you are wanting to make sure you are okay with messages and images it shows. :)

Mine loves Animal Planet shows like ER Vets, Too Cute, Cats 101 and Dogs 101.
She also really likes K9 Cops lately. Interesting, because I watch it with her and she learns a bit about drugs, violence, etc. - good for her age I think.

Yep, we like Cats & Dogs 101 on Animal Planet as well, and sometimes Pit Boss, Verminators, Bad Dog, Frozen Planet,etc.

Also like to watch Pick A Puppy (usually on CMT) too.
