Before I ask my parent panel to give us their opinions on some of the more serious or pressing issues affecting parents, I wanted to give them another chance to air their thoughts on some more children’s TV.
I offered them a few shows to choose from – the Tweenies in particular inspired a VERY strong response from most of the panel (parts of which I’m not even sure I could publish!!) but we eventually settled on one of my kids’ favourites – Cbeebies show ‘The Octonauts’. I’ve actually posted my thoughts on the undersea adventurers on a number of ocassions (“I love The Octonauts, but…“, “The Ultimate Octonauts Quiz” and “There’s No Place for Goodies and Baddies in our House” to name but three) – so I’ll spare you more raving from me. But I was pleased to find out my panel were slightly more even on the subject, some positive like me, some a little more critical.
