Usually OK—Walt Disney has done it again! The leader in family entertainment, the Disney Channel introduces its all new original series "Lizzie McGuire." The show is based around the main character Lizzie, played by Hilary Duff, and her life as a teenager. Lizzie and her friends deal with everyday problems a normal young teen would deal with. Not only is this show creative and entertaining, but it's also a great show for kids of all ages. I've watched it consistently since its premiere and there has never been anything objectionable. They don't cuss and they never take God's name in vain. I highly recommend this show for anyone who's looking for something wholesome and fun to watch!

Usually OK—This show is usually alright, teaches good lessons, etc…however in at least one episode religious beliefs are trivialized and even made fun of. It should also be considered that this show treats rather disprespectful behavior from teenagers as being natural and ok.

Young people express their opinions…

Caution—A show which is okay in some aspects it is highly questionable in others. Lizzie, and several of the other females of the cast wear shirts that are skin tight. It's teaching young girls that if you want to look cool you should spend hours on your hair and get your shirts as clingy as possible. While this show does have some good moral implications, it is a "parent beware" program.

Usually OK—Lizzie McGuire is a great show! I love it! Lizzie is a normal teen who faces normal teen obstacles every day. She is just like me and my friends, so I can totally relate to the show.

Caution—Alright, there's nothing outright offensive or profane about this show, but it is shallow and lifeless. For a start: The main character is absolutely nothing for young girls to look up to. She is not intelligent, and although she never bares her whole midriff, she wears very low cut pants and skintight tops, and looks as though she spends hours making her fake blonde hairdo and makeup. Lizzie is completely ditzy and shallow. For another thing, the show is completely unrealistic: She is popular, she is generically pretty, her parents look like fashion models, ahe never wears the same outfit twice, she is the desire of every boy in the school, modeling agencies call her for fashion shoots. Lizzie McGuire also never faces any real serious issues, and, no one ever really hurts her. Although not disgustingly offensive, I am sure there are far better role models for young girls.

Usually OK—I think its a pretty good show. It really relates to a girl and what she puts up with. I think she is a role model to some girls because of how she takes care of things. Lizzie is really a caring person and I really like watching that show!
