    I don't think children are stupid, and I realize that curiosity may cause some to do or say things that are inappropriate, regardless of how well their parents have raised them, and I'm not advocating gratuitous sex and violence all over movies and television. My issue here is with the overprotection of children as far as media is concerned. I guess what I'm saying is that I want the decision of what's acceptable in media to be made with more in mind than that a kid might inadvertently hear a curse word or see a nipple.

My co-worker with two children under ten tried to explain that she can't always be around to monitor what they watch, so systems should be in place to ensure that they won't accidently (or intentionally) watch something she doesn't want them to see. Obviously, you can't watch your kids 24/7 but shouldn't you as a parent be teaching them right from wrong, what's acceptable and what's not, and then be reasonably secure that, even in the time they spend away from you, they can still come to coherent conclusions about what they've seen? Or are children so stupid that we have to shield them until they go to college?
    No they are not stupid. That is part of the problem. They are however little copycats that will act out just about everything they see and repeat whatever they hear. As a result if you want to raise a child that doesn't think looking at a womans bare breasts and using F@#! ever other word is normal you have to keep them from it.

    It's hard, really hard. If society doesn't help you it becomes just about impossible. There are channels I don't even turn on anymore because while the shows may be fine the commercials can be nearly obscene. Also I home school. What about those who don't?

Sometimes it can be simply stupidity that gets kids into trouble. But about 75% of the time curiosity is to blame.
    Very true. Fortunatly kids are also inheirantly lazy as well. If you can make it an effort for them to get their hands on the stuff them most of them won't bother.

    Thanks Miroku, I needed a laugh. That is just like a friend of our who looked at my husband, after one of our kids lay down in the aisle of a grocery store screaming and throwing a fit, and told him "my kids will never do that". He laughed and admitted it was a stupid thing to say but my husband pointed out, [sarcasm]"Yes, I taught him to do that"[/sarcasm]

    I wouldn't be making any comments about what you would or would not do or what your kids would or would not do unless you are prepared for those of us who know you to write them down and use them against you when you have some.

    Hey whats wrong with looking at a womans breasts? They are a work of art!! I dont see it as abnormal. I would hope my teenage son would want to look at them. Oh god please, crosses fingers.

    PS:Unless he's under a certain age, say like 14

    I dont think any father would want his son to not like looking at bare breast.
