My daughter is 3. THREE!!! She does not need to know about Hannah Montana.
So, why does everyone and their mom think that it’s prime time my daughter be introduced to her?
Is this not a TV show for tween/teenage girls? I’ve seen it a couple of times and it’s definitely geared for girls 10 and up in my opinion. Lots of boy talk and jokes that are obviously meant for teenagers (and parents in some cases). And is there kissing? Not sure, but I wouldn’t be surprised.
So why oh why does my three year old need to even know that name?
Stop trying to give my three year old a Hannah Montana sticker. Or underwear. Or toy.
And stop asking me if she watches the show! You’ll get a quick, short, and loud NO! In fact, I might even turn it around on you and ask YOU why YOUR preschooler watches the show.
I can’t imagine why little girls are introduced to make-up, nail polish, or such TV shows at such a young age, and then folks wonder why they want to act, dress, and look the same way when they are just a few years older. Then it becomes a problem?
I know I cannot keep my daughter away from Hannah Montana forever, or whomever it might be in a few years. It’s all over the place and it will be impossible to shield her. Nor do I want to “shield” her necessarily. I’d rather teach her than hide it from her.
But, for now…when she’s only three and I CAN control what she watches, what she wears, and who she listens to…believe me, I’m shielding her.
Hannah Montana will not be in our house. Or any of her similarly-acting sisters. Not for the next few years.
And, I’m about to throw away that stupid sticker she got from the urgent clinic.
