Mommy Corner- No more Caillou

My husband has always hated the cartoon, Caillou. He always says "I want to punch that kid." For those of you who haven't seen it, it's about a 4 year old boy. It's a cute concept, but the boy is extremely whiny and always gets his way. His parents never discipline him or even explain what he does wrong. It's like he rules the house. Now, I don't like the cartoon either, but I tolerate it b/c my toddler LOVES it. I don't know why, but she does. I've never been able to sit through the whole cartoon. I don't get why he has to be so whiny and why his parents let him get away with stuff...
The other night I came home, my husband had been with her for a couple of hours and he said that they had been watching Caillou. The episode they watched, Caillou's friends didn't want to play the same game as he, so he got mad and said things like "I don't like them" "they're not my friends anymore" and so forth. And if you've seen the show, you know how whiny his voice can get. lol So my husband has forbidden Caillou from this house because he doesn't want our daughter learning that behavior. I do agree w/ my husband, kids can learn all sorts of things from TV and my daughter does not need help learning how to be whiny.


  1. We sang the opening song and replaced the name Caillou, with whiny. My kids thought that was so funny.
