Can I tell you how much I DISLIKE this little guy. For those of you who don't watch PBS he's Caillou a bald 4 year old with and incredibly whiney voice! He NEVER gets corrected or punished but he often has an AWFUL attitude! His father's ALWAYS at home (he never works?) His parents NEVER loose their temper, raise their voice, or get frustrated. They ALWAYS ask for their children's help, and drop everything to take their children and their friends places? Talk about a false reality! The worst part is that after Sophia watches him--she thinks the world revolves around her. Out goes the please & thank you in comes the pouting. (oh yeah did I mention Caillou pouts too!) I work very hard to include my daughter, never raise my voice and come up with fun things to do--but it's much easier with a polite child then a self-indulged one. If you're going to have a false reality why don't we have a perfect, unrealistic version of a child instead of parents? Please!
Sophia & I have found a show we can both watch: John & Kate Plus 8! They have 6 three year olds (yes I said six) and so she's fascinated by it all. These parents understand kids will be kids, but they are far more disciplined with 8 then I am with one. I guess you'd have to be.
