What’s Happened to Children’s Programming?

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    Nick Jr and a few of the other stations still do one day in, I want to say September, that they stop broadcasting to promote outside play. I forget what they call it. But I agree, the shows just are inappropriate or plain dumb anymore. We watch Mostly the History, Travel, and cooking channels. My kids love the mystery series.

      I still love PBS. They have some really good programming but I agree, History, Travel, Animal Planet and Cooking Channel are better still. Thing 3 loves watching How It’s Made and Funniest Animals and People.
