Zoey 101 Issue Well, it turns out that my 10 year old daughter is a 'closet' Zoey 101 fan. I say 'closet' because I honestly didn't know that she was watching the show. (A separate issue, which was already addressed, for my kids do know they aren't supposed to watch any show that hasn't been pre-approved by us! ) Anyway, all the girls at the school are all geared up to watch the big Zoey 101 movie. And, my daughter is really upset because I said no. Naturally, the issue is not just because of the fact that she didn't get permission to watch this show, but rather due to the fact that the 16 year old Zoey is Jamie Lynn Spears, 16 and pregnant in real life. I would imagine that if Maureen McCormack had gotten pregnant, Marsha Brady would have been written out of the Brady Bunch or replaced by a different actor in a heartbeat. But, the times have changed and Nickolodean isn't going to make any changes to the series whatever. So, now I'm forced to have this discussion with my 10 year old, about why I'm not allowing her to watch a show that all her friends are geared up to watch. My kids know that the old, "But all of my friends are doing it" doesn't fly around here, but I've always tried to explain (age appropriately) why their father and I make the decisions we make, if anything to foster discernment in them. And, I think that it's important that she understand why we don't want to have her watch this show. It's a safe bet that the girls at school know all about the pregnancy and the fact that it's being touted as "wonderful" that she's keeping the baby. But, for crying out loud, she's just 10! Yes, we've had serious discussions regarding the birds and the bees and where babies come from, but only from the confines of Christian marriage and values. We will have to talk over things with her, but I'm a bit stymied on exactly how much we should go into this. Especially since I'm a real sticker for gossip as well, and I've already put the kabosh on any 'gossiping' regarding Jamie Lynn's older sister and her troubles. Any advice from some of you older and wiser parents on how we should handle this one?
