There are ads on TV that are really not for that appropriete age group! The other day, there was this commercial on Nick, about this desease for teenager called megingitis and how its a rare desease but you can die from it and you get it by sharing sodas, kissing and close contact! I mean its like their showing 8 year olds that they're gonna die when they become teenagers! And why doesn't every teenager get this desease if you get it by close contact?

There's one about a child who has a friend with Down's Syndrome, and it states that there's nothing wrong with it, and gives a link in case kids want to look at it more. I think they're educational and a good idea. :)

Although Nickelodeon should should show Sabrina more than once a day.

I think they stopped showing Sabrina because one episode had foul language in a song. Anyway, they play on ABC family.

Meningitis not everyone affect it and the older are you the less you will affect and also it has a prevention, so no so worrying.
