My first thought was Bottom Biting Bug, but I see ygirlxox beat me to it!

Humanity has Declined http://www.crunchyroll.com/humanity-has-declined
The name sounds hardcore but it's actually very colourful and interesting
Shugo Chara http://www.crunchyroll.com/shugo-chara
You can choose to be both a punk and a cute girl at the same time. Also it's okay to be an insanely laughing king at times. What a good influence! xD There's loads of episodes.
Sailor Moon (when/if the remake airs next year don't miss that!)

That's my three first suggestions. Also, Gintama i've heard is made for children. But... It's suitable for adults. Has complex, sometimes naughty, humour that'll make anyone laugh their heart out.

Shugo Chara and Chi's Sweet Home are both really cute.

Bottom Biting Bug, Polar Bear Cafe, Shugo Chara, some Slice of Lifes (though you have to be careful here since some I have seen listed as Slice of Life tend to be a bit too ecchi for kiddos) though ones like Kiniro Mosaic are safe.

I'll also throw out, like others have, Gintama. It's a pretty light hearted comedy series (with a lot of episodes) that will make the kids laugh (or atleast mine do). And it has adult humour in it as well to let us adults get a chuckle without being inappropriate, or at least not in a way kids would catch. Kind of like some American cartoons have done (I'm looking at you Johnny Bravo...)

Also like Gintama there is SKET Dance, which is kind of like Gintama's little brother series, sort of...

Usagi Drop.

Most slice of life comedy shows on this site that doesn't have drama attached to it.

Let him watch some sports animes. It might inspirer him, get him into some sport.
Wish I knew about anime when I was younger, like when I was in junior high.

Prince of Tennis (Seems like they only have The New Prince of Tennis on here, but it might be just as inspiring as the original, and there's probably no dumb fillers).
Eyeshield 21
Kuroko no Basket

I'd definitely go for Usagi Drop. It's not only good for kids, it's good for the whole family. But if one of your kids like something a little girlier, then Fantasista Doll would be a good start.

I recommend you look at Funimation's site. I know they have Sgt Frog (really good for kids) and Pretty Cure (for little girls especially) among other watchable stuff for kids. Besides Sherlock Hound, which I watched when I was a kid and was mentioned earlier, I can't see any anime on CR I would recommend for your kids.

It also has violence. Gintama's demographic is shonen (13-21 years old) and as much as I love the show, I wouldn't let my kids watch it until they're at least 15.

You do know that both Yuru Yuri ,Kiniro Mosaic, and the A-Channel had some lesbian refrences and relationships in it right?....

Some for Yuru Yuri and A-Channel I guess but seriously, Kiniro Mosaic's "references" are rather innocent. Are you actually taking the show seriously enough to ignore its other cute factors?

I think they should wait until they're a little bit older...


Yeah I agree with him on this one those anime aren't for kids more like teenagers lol

Yeah, the part with Yuru Yuri and A-Channel might be for little older children but I don't see a problem with Kiniro Mosiac.

There are only a few episodes here but "Kobo-chan" is a cute little family friendly show.

Pretty Cure is here on Crunchyroll too.

Surprised no one mentioned Encouragement Of Climb. The episodes are only five minutes long but its as kid friendly as they come.
