Default Re: Do You Think Characters Influence Young Children?

I don't think any of those characters are a bad influence on kids.

Alex Russo- She gets in trouble but she gets consequences and learns lesson from her mistakes. Like in the Wizards Of Waverly Place Movie. And some episodes.

Jackson- He's mostly just goofy. Not really a bad influence.

Jonas Brothers- I don't see how any part of them or their show is a bad influence. Their show is all about 'Keeping It Real' and doing the right thing. And their very sweet guys so I don't think they themselves can be a bad influence.

But I do agree with others. Sam on ICarly is a bad influence. But as some others have said the network is on is called TEENnick.
And London Tipton is a bad influence because she's always Me Me Me. and making fun of others because of their outfits and their social status and their looks. etc. And that's not a good thing. But for both of the people who play the characters I don't think anyone really thinks that Brenda Song and Jennette McCurdy acctally act like their characters in real life.

However, Alex Russo on WOWP is a show designed for ALL ages, basically 6-16. So if anything, she should be a better role model.

So kids can CHOOSE to watch iCarly, but if they are poorly influenced, it is their fault, considering it is a show aimed and teenagers.
actually. the age range for icarly is 5-16. which means younger kids are watching it. and honestly. how many of us teenagers here watch nickelodeon at all anyway? ahha. & even if it was designed for teenagers alone, what does that matter anyway? are teenagers not easily impressed? can teenagers actions not be swayed by what they say? & personally, i think that show is horrible. the little girl i babysit, loves it & i can't stand watching it, i've seen every episode, and not once have i found anything sam or really any other character (except maybe spencer) funny. sowry.


& how can you blame children for watching icarly?
lets not be ridiculous.

OH. and i also think, it is NOT the little kids fault, it is the PARENTS. so yeah. don't blame a bunch of little kids who don't know.

Other- Carly from iCarly, Hannah Montana/disney channel.

In my opinion, Carly is sassy and NOSY! She thinks EVERYTHING is her business. Like, in the episode where she finds out that Freddie and Sam kissed. She's all "Why didn't you tell me!". Maybe, Carly, they wanted to keep it a secret?
She is a bad influence for younger children.

Hannah Montana. Do I really have to say much?

Probably Alex Russo. She isn't that wonderful. And the Jackson thing, he's just a goofy normal guy. Most guys are like him.

I don't think the Jonas Brothers influence kids badly. And Jackson is in the middle, but his is more humorous/goofy rather than a rule-breaking kid.
I agree!
