I watched all of those shows as a kid, as did my friends and siblings, and we are all fine. It's fun.

Yeah, because pretending something doesn't exist makes it go away. If you're that bothered by it, make a point of watching it with your kids and see how they feel about it. Have a discussion.

That is, if they even care to watch the show at all. Charlie is getting a bit dated.

As with any program or activity, prayerful consideration and active parenting is a must. My wife and I are quite alarmed as to how many people tune in to Sponge Bob Square Pants to entertain their children. Personally, I would pick Charlie Brown over Sponge Bob any day of the week.

Some things are dated and yet I love to watch old black and white movies with my favorite stars. I am teaching my children to play Hide'n Seek and Kick the can, and we love to sit down to a family movie of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers with Jane Powell.

Sometimes I think we need to return to the good 'ol days and allow for the concept that the best way to handle a bully is to flatten him and then invite him over for lunch. We are constantly retreating and going into full defense mode. It's really paying off, isn't it.
