You know, I think you all should scare your kids more. I really do.
And while you are at it, get rid of those wimpy airsoft guns and buy them some real bb guns.
And stop thinking your kids are the specialest/most vulnerable.
Your kids need to get hurt more, scared more, catch more colds, get dirtier, do more dangerous things, and read more advanced books.
Because seriously, these fluffy, dependent little brats you are raising... they are what scare me. Can they survive outside of padded sterile protection pods?
Scar them. Scar them good. If you love them.

Who said Dr. Who was a kids' show?
Well, historically it was.
I speak as a kid who watched the very first episode (showing my age).
It just evolved over the decades into something that would entertain adults as well, and the newer version has shot off in different directions.
But even in the early days, being frightened was part of the appeal (as with roller-coasters).
The standard joke was that children were watching it "standing behind the sofa", ie ready to duck down out of sight.
Behind the settee, if they were northerners.
Americans, er.. "behind the couch", I think

I Love Doctor Who!
However, I must agree that many of the shows are NOT child friendly. My kids actually do watch some of the episodes that I have to pre-approve. BUT, one night I caught my daughter up REALLY late watching Netflix.....Dr. Who.
It appeals to young tween and teens, why, because it is an adventure, and many kids DO understand the difference between imaginary and real. When I was young I loved Lost in Space. My parents hated it....its all perspective.

Just wanted to say ....
VERY disappointed with the Doctor and Clara in the Russian sub episode.
It was really dull.
HOPE that the episode tonight about the psychic is better.
They really need to do more with explaining Claras situation.
And ... I miss Amy and Rory ....

Doctor Who: the “children's show” that should never be watched by children!. I strongly disagree
Doctor Who is the most popular show in our household. It's the one show we ALL watch TOGETHER. Ages from mature adult, through young adult, to teens; females as well as male.
