I am a sister of an 8 year old girl who loves Disney Channel. She started watching Disney when I was watching it, about 5 years ago. Back then, Disney aired shows that were funny, but they were also appropriate and taught good lessons. I only watch it when I’m at home babysitting now, and I have noticed that Disney has definitely changed in the way they portray their “comedy”. Today, my little sister was watching a show called MY BABYSITTER’S A VAMPIRE, and I thought that the show was not appropriate for an 8 year old little girl. The episode that I watched had an adult teacher that had an inappropriate love interest in a boy.
The episode also included girls fighting over the boys and the boys were encouraging it. Are fighting over boys and teachers having love interests in a student the lessons that Disney Channel is trying to teach these young children? We see teachers going to prison every day for having love interests in students, and young teens committing suicide because of jealous peers. I am deeply disappointed in Disney Channel’s choice of shows that they are airing. Disney Channel is for young kids, not almost grown teens.
