Those who don't care for the breed are just as fierce in their dislike. Perhaps some of these shows are just educating people who are on the fence to begin with.

I know of a few kids right now that volunteer with us, they have friends whose parents are part of the whole "pit bulls are the devil incarnate"movement. Whenever they are over to one of these parents houses they all gang up on with a little of their own education when that parents makes an ignorant statement, resident kids included.
I'm sure there will be some kids who are molded by their parents but I find that by and large, kids are their own individuals quite capable of forming their own opinions and speaking out loudly against their parents as often as possible
