    This post encouraged me to reflect on what I give the green light to in terms of TV viewing in our home. Scooby Doo is a hit as is Tom & Jerry. I always check in with ABC1 & ABC2 (I appreciate the lack of commercials) before we “surf” paid and free to air channels.
    Miss 6 has been enjoying Yarramundi kids which is on Foxtel on the NITV channel. http://www.yarramundikids.tv/yarramundikids/index.html.
    We watch Charmed, Friends & Will & Grace together (sometimes I get a raised eyebrow from friends with the viewing selection at our home). Being together or nearby is very important as it allows me (& their father) to monitor, switch channels or turn off if we believe anything to be over the top or the kids request a change. Recently though I put on a cartoon of Batman thinking that it would be fine (I had not seen previously – but recalled Batman from my childhood was harmless), not this one. Dad walked into the room and made the decision to turn off after seeing people being killed by machine guns.
    A Friday night ritual for us is pizza in front of the TV. One evening after thinking that I would scream if I had to sit through another Wiggles (sorry boys), I put in the DVD of Strictly Ballroom – it was a hit. So on Friday movie nights we have watched Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Man from Snowy river, Grease, Flash dance (or fat dance as our young fella calls it), Footloose, League of their own – yes Mum & Dad are having eighties flashbacks and taking the kids with us.
    My daughter & I have enjoyed Little Women, The ghost & Mrs Muir and Brides of Christ. I am looking forward to watching the Great Escape with my son when he gets a little older & his father is keen to introduce him to Mad Max.
