I've banned my kids from watching Peppa Pig, Hey Duggee & Cocomelon – people parent shame me but I find them annoying

A mum-of-two has revealed that she's banned several popular kids' TV shows in her house because they're "annoying" and not educational.

Finleigh Powell, who is from the UK and has two kids under two, took to TikTok and shared a list of the programmes that are "banned" in her house.

These include: "Peppa Pig, Dugee, Huggy Wuggy and Cocomelon."

She captioned the post: "Not judging whether you let your children watch these, they are just not for us."

In a second video, Finleigh responded to a person who asked: "Cocomelon is quite educational and nice, could you explain this one?"

Offering an explanation, Finleigh replied: "The main reason we banned Cocomelon is simply because when I was pregnant I thought it was annoying, which I still think it is."

More recently, there have been studies that have come out to say it affects children's behaviour and delays speech."

"That's not me saying that all children who watch Cocomelon are going to have a speech delay or that they're going to misbehave any more than a normal toddler would."

In a third video, Finleigh addresses another question that proved popular among her social media users – what TV programmes do her children watch?

"The only things my children really watch are the Julia Donaldson's short stories on Prime, so like The Gruffalo, The Highway Rat and Stick Man and Zog," she says.

She watches a lot of Ms Rachel which has really improved her speech and she's learned a lot of gestures from there. So if you don't want Ms Rachel with your children I really recommend that."

Other than that she occasionally watches Ben and Holly, then if she wants to watch a film she'll watch Alvin and the Chipmunks and she loves How to Train a Dragon."

That's all she likes to watch and there are a lot of things I won't let her watch."

And it wasn't long before social media users took to the comments section – with very mixed reviews.

"My little boy would have a meltdown visiting you," wrote one.

A second commented: "I think everything is fine in moderation! Nothing wrong with a bit of TV time! We do 30 mins a day and the rest is playing."

A third penned: "Ah not Duggee! I think the colours are great!"

Elsewhere, others agreed with some of Finleigh's decisions.

"Exactly what it's not allowed in my house either," wrote one.

A second commented: "My kids will NEVER even hear of Coco Melon."
