    Its due to the parents I think; nowadays I don't think parents pay as much attention or try to show thier children the difference between right and wrong. Most parents nowadays have both parents working and they don't get enough attention because their parents leave early and come home late.

    well....there is no real simple answer for this problem. It mostly comes down to the parent.

    For the TV thing....thats easily solved these days since you can block anything you dont want them seeing. For most TV's anyway.

    But other things...I think that you shouldnt entirely shelter them nor should you let them run wild. Monitor and make sure nothing too bad happens. If its something that they can potentially learn from their mistakes themselves without any real danger to them, then i think it would be a better idea. People (especially children) often learn things much better when its self taught through experience.

    Ah, censorship the easiest thing to cry for when it all hits the fan.

    It's an unfortunate part of life that people always look for something else to blame. "Little Johnny couldn't have been a psycho who was planning to shoot up his friends that darn video game/movie if you go back 10 or so years/comic book if you go back about 30" made him do it.

    On the other hand, parents can't view everything personally so while censorship is wrong, Ratings are VERY important as are strict enforcment of such. Games such as GTA or movies like Silence of the Lambs, or a porn aren't appropriate for kids and as such if one tries to see it they shouldn't be allowed and there should be something identifying to the parents this item has such and such bad things in it so make sure your child is ready to see it. Some children can handle very mature subjects at a young age while others aren't ready until they are almost adults. It's for a parent to decide what is right.

    That said ratings are more or less a way to make sure that things get to the age group they are aimed at, while still be accessible to others and letting them know what type of content is there. Games like Mario to little kids, Game like SoCom and such out to teens, and games like GTA or Manhunt to adults. (I use video games because they are easier. to use)

    LOL I was one of those kids that was allowed to watch anything. The problem is that I never wanted to watch anything adult. I was into carebears and my little pony . My parents however encouraged me to watch the movies they watched like Aliens, and Poltergeist (poltergeist is still the scariest movie ever made by the way). These movies have scarred me for life. I hate watching scary movies and I hate things that move that shouldnt. I hate little girls going in and out of t.v.'s, scary wells, and cabbage patch dolls (they reminded me of chucky). Maybe its better to let your kids watch what they want.

    I do hate it when they show movies on tv and cut out all the swearing and nudity. I thinks it funny that they dont cut grosome murders and violence but they take the time to cut a little nipple or something.

Or are children so stupid that we have to shield them until they go to college?
    There is a difference between curiosity and stupidity. We can teach kids all we want about what's right and what's wrong but we can't keep them from exploring. It's the main reason teens are tempted to try drugs, not becuase they are pressured into it and foolishly fall for it, but because they are curious as to what the experience might be like, though I do admit that curiosity is not always to blame. Sometimes it can be simply stupidity that gets kids into trouble. But about 75% of the time curiosity is to blame.

    I dont feel that kids are stupid. sometimes when you are watching a show you dont realize how inapropriate it might be until you have actually gotten into the show. you can teach kids right from wrong, it doesnt mean they wont accidentally find the wrong. and just like adults sometimes curiosity can get the better of them too.

    Curiosity is what makes children learn. What the see around when they come across is something they gain.
    They wouldn't have much of a common sense if everything they learn came from text books. So for them being curious they can it is something important to them, besides they are children, all children are curious, even adults too.

    We can't prevent this from happening, but we can lessen it by teaching them that watching some of movies, nude shows, etc. are not good for them...
    Its better to teach them that so they know that its bad...
    But if your child(ren) is so bad and grow spoiled... You can't do about that...
    Its your fault...
