I Knew There Was Something Amiss with Sponge Bob…

SpongeBob SquarePants

Making Kids Dumber

And now there’s proof!  Sponge Bob makes your kids stupid!

The cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants is in hot water from a study suggesting that watching just nine minutes of that program can cause short-term attention and learning problems in 4-year-olds.  The problems were seen in a study of 60 children randomly assigned to either watch “SpongeBob,” or the slower-paced PBS cartoon “Caillou” or assigned to draw pictures. Immediately after these nine-minute assignments, the kids took mental function tests; those who had watched “SpongeBob” did measurably worse than the others.

Keep your little ones away from the yellow demon or they will do poorly at learning.  That’s not me talking, that’s science!

    I don’t let my kids watch Sponge Bob, instead, they watch Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig.
