I'm not so much a Hannah Montana fan, but speaking of shows that you never would have watched if you didn't have kids...I like iCarly. :)

I have no idea who Hannah Montana is but I agree absolutely with what you say re children and clothes. There has been a lot of talk lately about this - and parents do seem to have forgotten that they are in charge - say "no" to the clothes and the junk food and the television if you don't like what it does. It isn't actually hard to do it! Parents are so afraid it will make their children outcasts or whatever and yet it does not at all.
Oooh - the whole weak parent thing makes me SOOOOO cross!!!!


I don't think the clothes on HM are too bad, really. I've caught parts of a few episodes. My kids aren't interested in it. HM/MC always seems to have all her parts covered, usually in many layers.

I'll probably find out in the next year or so. Right now my 4yo daughter is more into dinosaurs and princesses and dinosaur princesses.


Okay, now I'm curious. Maybe I'll check it out...


You said it, DON'T do what Lyndsey Lohan did...


I've been known to watch HM with my 14 year old daughter. I've also been known to listen to her new song from the movie, The Climb, really loudly in my car. I LOVE that song.

Busy Bee Suz

I also find the show very comical...you are right, sorta like Lucy!!
I have a feeling she won't be going down the same road as some of the other pop star girls.
So the movie was cute???

Smalltown Mom

I feel safe to confess my secret love of High School Musical. Sounds like I should watch this too.


AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!! Say it isn't so!

Baby Favorite

I like her, too. She's big in our house, what with Erin being just 9.

I also like that, when interviewing her last year, Oprah mentioned that understood Miley attended church regularly. Then she asked (to put her on the spot, in my opinion) what her favorite bible verse was. Without hesitation, Miley recited Ephesians 6:10-11, “Finally, my brother, come close to the Lord for if you put on the full armor of God you can stand against the walls of a devil.”

I hope she stays on track. So far, so good!


I confess, I totally love Hannah Montana too. I let my daughter listen to the music more than watch the TV show because, hello, she's only 7. But, I was a little sad when she went to a birthday party last weekend without me that included seeing the movie. Without me. Maybe she will want to see it again... I could bribe her...My husband will totally not go, so she is my only hope.


I've never seen the show, but was under the impression she/her character are much less offensive than most of the garbage on TV right now.

I was surprised too when I sat down once to watch an episode with my boys to see what the fuss was about --very much like Lucille Ball! I rather liked it too!


I've never seen the show (yet, but I'm sure I will one day) but the concept behind it seems okay. I saw the movie commercial and it actually looked kinda goo!


oops! meant to say "good"!


I watch it with the garandaughters, and it is a wholesome show, and the clothes aren't that bad.

Much better than letting them watch something like Bret Michaels "Rock of Love"!
Now there are some clothes.........!!!


Since I have only boys, we haven't seen the show or the movie, but what little bit I have seen on commercials backs up what you have posted here. And the "just say no" tactic? All the time!!


Couldn't pay me to watch it... thank goodness my kids are too young. Who knows what it will be when they're old enough to care about that kind of show.

For now I'm suffering through Dora and Max and Ruby.


You know that cute guy we have out here reviewing movies, Sam something (not Champion)? he said HM was the best movie he'd seen all year!


I'm not even sure what "Polk it, dot it, etc" means, but it sounds like something I'd like to see, and if HM brings out that kind of fun, she must not be SO bad.


She's not on my radar, but I respect that you like her! If I had kiddos, I'm sure I'd be watching her shows.

Minnesota Matron

Nobody in our family has yet come into much contact with Hannah Montana, so I can't comment on her specifically. I like your attitude, though! The Matron is fond of child actors, as a matter of personal policy :-)
