5. Another side of the coin, however..

My sons were not allowed to watch anythng but PBS when they were pre-school.
The basic Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers, Electric Company.
3 days after beginning kindergarten, one kid started spouting off racial stereotype remarks.
I asked him where he had heard that, he said classmates.
Found that very interesting, at the time.
No long term effect, I am happy to say, but I was blown away that it took less than a week to counter a couple of years of Seasame Street.
