Some Children's shows are more irritating than others and here's a list of my top three to avoid in order to save your sanity.

Children's Shows to Avoid to Save Your Sanity

There are a few children's shows that you will want to avoid at any cost in order to save the last few shreds of sanity you are still clinging on to. Their shear annoyance and insistence on repeating the same phrases over and over and over again will probably drive you mad.

Caillou

The first offender is Caillou - never have I seen a show where the main character is so whiny. In pretty much every episode Caillou is whining about one thing or another. My friend had warned me about not letting my daughter watch this show and she was so right - not good habits you want to teach a toddler who is just learning proper manners and their main way of learning is through copying and I would say as a role model Caillou is right up there with Britney Spears.

Dora the Explorer

The second offender in my opinion is Dora the Explorer - which insists on repeating things over and over again insistently. And the more episode you watch the more you realize there is no variation I already can't stand to hear the phrase "Swiper no Swiping" And I am not the only one who find Dora utterly irritating as it is the butt of many jokes. One of my favourites being:

“It’s Cameron’s turn to be out in the world, interacting with other adults. While I get to stay at home and plot the death of Dora the Explorer…. Fill her backpack with bricks and throw her into Candy Cane river.” – Mitchell from Modern Family

4 Squares


4 Squares - unfortunately my daughter has seen this show a few times and now likes it 'but I do not approve of 3 grown men (and one women) in a spandex body suit. It isn't necessary at all. They could have the same effect wearing less revealing clothing.

If your child hasn't seen any of these shows I suggest you turn the channel immediately when they come on before they get attached to any of them, for the sake of your own sanity. Are there any other programs you think should have made the list? Please let me know.
