Judge Judy

by Marinka on December 30, 2011

My 13 year old daughter has a favorite new show. It’s Judge Judy. She started watching it with my Mama last week and according to my daughter, she’s “hooked” and is also “really into law” now.

Needless to say, this is wonderful news and Husbandrinka and I are planning many festivities to celebrate this milestone in our lives.

But while that is underway, I had a brief discussion with Mama about it.

Marinka: I see that you’ve introduced the kids to Judge Judy.

Mama: Yes. It is good idea. She is like wise grandmother with good advice.

Marinka: Ok, but-

Mama: She says to girls don’t get stuck with losers and pay their bill. This is good advice.

Marinka: Right, but-

Mama: She makes sense. Children should know what makes sense.

Marinka: I just want to make sure that Judge Judy doesn’t lead to Dr. Phil.

Mama:Of course not. Who you take me for? I haven’t even let them watch Two and Half Men.

Reassuring.

You must be heartbroken. I know you were hoping for her to be a doctor just like in GH…

Mama is BOTH introducing your daughter to positive Jewish female role models AND preparing her for law school. This woman is clutch.

I have to agree with mama – Judge Judy does not suffer fools. Or in-laws.

Well, that’s okay for now, but watch out because they’ll probably make one of those Kardashian ho-bags a judge soon.

Heads up.

Is she a GH fan yet? Because that’s where the real learning comes in.

Judge Judy is my grandpa’s favorite show… he’s 91. Share that with your daughter and she might stop watching.

My Soviet born father watches Judge Judy every day, and now he’s got my kids watching and repeating what she says!
