Not suitable for child rearing
Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood has very few redeeming qualities. It encourages children to work together, and teaches them that they are all the same even if they have physical differences. These lessons are commendable.
However, this program encourages children to throw temper-tantrums. The parents always maintain an understanding demeanor as the child has fits concerning anything that does not go their way. By reasoning and compassion, the hissy-fit subsides and the child returns to a calm stance. This is completely unrealistic because an adult cannot reason with a child. A child is incapable of understanding adult principles. They have the mind of a child.
This is one reason why the world is so violent and ungodly today. Parents allow children to do, say and go, whatever, whenever and wherever they want. No discipline is instilled and the child grows up believing the world was made to accommodate their desires.
Thankfully my parents did not raise me in this fashion. The manner in which the parents and children behave and interact on this show is like a parallel universe when compared to the way I was raised. My children will not be watching this show.
