It may sound odd, but one of the shows my family always watches is Sponge Bob Square Pants on Nickelodeon. My youngest son and I always make sure to watch the newest episodes of Sponge Bob on the best direct tv packages in Kentucky. It’s one of the quirkiest, cutest, and most hilarious programs available to young kids. I absolutely adore it and know my kids do too!

Because my son loves this program, we always try to schedule time to watch it throughout the week. I also use the program as a reward for my son’s progress in school. For example, if my son gets a good grade on an exam at school then I will let him stay up late and watch a couple re-runs of “Sponge Bob Square Pants” with me. My son always tries to do his best in school now, because he has such a great incentive in addition to the incentive of just getting good grades. I like to see that he tries harder in school for a show that I think is great for kids.

Through this show, I know my son has learned some great skills in life, such as being kind to others and even animals. He is more compassionate with others. I look at this show as a great aid in his social development, as well as great bonding time for us!
