Thoughts on children watching the show "Big Mouth"?

What are your thoughts on allowing a prepubescent child to watch the Netflix show “Big Mouth”. It almost makes me consider allowing my daughter’s to watch it since to me it explains puberty better than any school class or myself. It’s hard to talk about these things. Please if you haven’t seen the show then watch it before commenting so your can have a true understanding of what I’m asking.

In my own opinion, no. I love the show it’s absolutely hilarious, but wildly inappropriate. Yes, it talks about puberty, but it also talks a whole lot about sex and different sex. Not very educational. Get her some books and yes it’s a hard, uncomfortable talk, but you need to do it.

Absolutely not!!! Get some books off of Amazon that are age appropriate!

Definitely not appropriate - there are MUCH better ways to educate your daughters

I say no as well. It’s not appropriate for kids. It’s a cartoon for grown ups. Look for a proper educational video or get some books. Talk to her since YOU have gone through it yourself. It’s not hard to do.
That show is in no way educational lol
It’s funny, but I feel it’s for grown ups.

I’ve never watched it, nor heard of it. But I educated my 16 year old daughter and now starting to educate my 12 year old son myself.

Yeah… I’m going to pass on that one, I vote no but I see why and you would want to.

Hard no, for me it helped (you know, as much as a TV show can) as someone who was mad sheltered but definitely not for a young kid, there are educational books that are probably a lot more helpful

No, not appropriate. It was hard starting that conversation with my girls but I sat them together and had them come up with questions for me. We call them “classes”. And we went on from there. It’s not a weird topic anymore. Good luck! Its hard starting it!

For me I’d sit with my child and watch it so if they have questions they can ask. I’d rather then ask me than go and ask a kid or learn out of a text book. Then again that’s me. Also depends on the child’s age to

Let them watch it, no. Take inspiration from it and how discuss things instead. They need to communicate with YOU mama, not watch a show. Find a way to transfer their lessons into your conversation if you think it explains it so well. (I love that show btw, I’ve considered this myself but my kids are still little and the advice I just gave is the conclusion I came to.)

It’s really not hard to talk about these things. Idk why people act like this stuff doesnt happen to all of us. Like it’s something taboo when it’s not. Find resources online. There are books you can get to give them if youre that uncomfortable with the discussion.

Yeah no. Definitely not appropriate for kids. Just bite the bullet and do it yourself.

I’d say heck no. Although yes it’s a cartoon and it does talk about puberty and sex, it’s more crude and adult then I’d personally like my child to learn those things. I’ve watched the show and find it funny but I wouldn’t want my child watching it.

Super inappropriate. Some of the things that they do are dirty and disgusting. Not for a kid.
