we have been hearing a lot about families these days. parents are all over complaining about video game violence and adult content in movies and tv. can't have little johnny or janey seeing naked folks in art either- might damage them. you are about to get my view on this whole thing- so if you are pro-parent and pro-kid- you probably should stop reading now.
i am not saying parenthood is an easy job- and for those who think of kids as accessories to your lives- i say that you should not have had children-- but it isn't supposed to be. people in this country feel that having children is the thing to do and is their right- but don't give it much more thought than that. it's a shame. because of your poor parenting skills, you think that the entire society needs to change for you to do your job better. here's the bottom line-
if you don't want your kid to listen to racy music or watch adult content tv shows or movies- don't let them. you have the power to turn off the button or not drive them to the movies. you have the power to put the tv block on and there is software you can buy for the computer. it is YOUR job to monitor YOUR child's entertainment. not mine. here's a news flash: not every place that YOU choose to go needs to be child friendly. there are those of us who are adults who don't have kids that have the right to go to a bar or restaurant without the dubious honor of your presence. take your kid to friendly's or disney world- not on a dinner cruise. i have the right to watch adult shows and rated r movies without little johnny or janey screaming in the aisles.
you folks agitated for ratings- and now we have them- on cds and dvds and games and movies. use them. don't take your kids to places that aren't age appropriate. don't buy them toys or other things that aren't age appropriate. don't take them to movies that aren't age appropriate. i don't want to watch a disney movie and that shouldn't be the only types of movies made. deal with it. and a news flash prudes- not all naked art is porn. get over it. it's your responsibility to shape your child's value system- not to be his/her friend. you are the parent- not me. i shouldn't have to rearrange my life to accommodate you- simply because you thought you were capable of raising children.
