My kids have recently fallen in love with The Cosby Show. So much so that we bought the first 3 seasons on DVD for Christmas. I have to admit I love the show as well and it brings back some fond memories of my younger days. My brothers and sister gathered around the t.v. with Mom and Dad, laughing our hiney's off and learning at the same time.
I like this series because, although it can be a bit unrealistic (as all t.v. shows are) the Huxtable family really did try to keep it "real". They dealt with real family situations and did so in a loving but responsible way.
I have been trying to come up with a Unit study on this series. I've never done anything like this before. Maybe you can help?
I want to be able to look at each episode and break down the vice/virtue issues. How the kids deal with certain issues, how Mom and Dad respond or do not respond.
Any suggestions? Does anyone else out there in blogger world love The Cosby Show? Has watching it influenced your parenting or children's attitude? What types of conversations have been sparked in your family because of a particular episode? Do you prefer the early seasons or the later ones? Ahhhh...so many questions.
OH and one more..is there a show on today that you regularly watch with your family and have been able to use for teaching moments?
I thank you in advance for your responses and look forward to reading and learning.
