Pretty bad messages about Friendship and Family life!
This show is not very good for children! The show started out when my oldest was only 3, and the second-oldest was 2. They were very young, but when their older cousin was over, they watched it. So, when it started out, Miley was sweet and was like a normal tween girl. Nice to her friends, and mostly nice to family. But as the show progressed, Miley got brattier and brattier. She is terribly rude to friends and family. My 6 year old isn't much of a disney girl, and she would rather be playing than watching TV, but my 7 year old and one of my 4 year olds, Railegh, enjoy this show. The 7 year old has picked up some of Miley's rude language. At first I had heard her saying it to family and friends, and people thought it was cute. My four year old picked it up too, which was precious. But then I got a call from my 7 year old's teacher, saying she was being rude towards her and the students. The teacher said that she made a comment and she replied with "Ya think?" which wasn't so bad. Until she did stuff Miley had done, such as actually laying on the floor of a school hallway and biting at her friend's leg! And probably the worst, my daughter had lost a friend over it! She didn't know when and when not to use "Hannah Montana Speak" as we now call it, and when a friend was upset about a deceased pet and wanted down time while my daughter wanted to play, my daughter told her to "build a bridge and get over it." I had a talk with my 7 and 4 year olds, and had banned them from being rude, and reminded them that it's just a show, and Miley is being very rude at times, and it's not acceptable in real life. But I decided to stop letting them watch the show when I watched an episode. Miley seems to be "using" her friends for her advantage, runs around like a diva, and twists situations so problems aren't her fault. Plus Miley Cyrus is a horrible role model, and her dad approves of it. But really, all the rest of the stars are good. But I do not want 4 teen divas running around in a couple of years, acting like Miley had!
