In a nutshell

Simone: "You don't like the shows where people are yelling or where only boys get to do."


Sounds like a pretty compact media policy. And Simone's obviously absorbed it. How have you expressed this to the girls explicitly?
I have complained in the past about shows where people seem to be yelling all the time (Dora/Diego, Yo Gabba Gabba), and this morning I tried to explain to Simone why I don't like Team Umizoomi because of the gender roles. (We see a lot of show preview ads these days.) She put them together on her own a few minutes later.

Now if I could only come up with a succinct explanation of why I never want to watch "Bubble Guppies" again, I'll be golden.
Hah! My 6-year-old is also named Simone, and she has internalized/sanctimoniously informed me of VERY SIMILAR household media policies.
