I will explain later why I asked this question.

    • No I do not think so.  The reason why shows are rated is because of the content of the show or film.

    • No..but the sad part is they watch it anyway, maybe it relates to lazy parents not monitoring the programs or these days everyone has to grow up so fast.frown

    • Hi Ladies,
      OK the reason I asked this question is because of my 8 year old neice whom I had the pleasure of keeping this week since they were on their Spring break. Now I haven’t seen her or spent time with her since she was around the age of 2yrs. old only because of the fallout with her ignorant/ghetto mom. Well as time would have it and I being in my thoughts were right about how she was being reared, it manifested the other day. I know her mom doesn’t care about what she nor the other two kids that she has does, but it bothers me. Now she and my g-baby have had the chance to inter-act together for the first time and they seemed to get along somewhat, but my g-baby was very over protective of me and made sure her cousin knew that I was “her” Nana! Well they were playing with baby dolls and I was sitting her at my desk online here and I happened to look over at them playing, now my g-baby had her back to her so she didn’t see her and the act she was doing but I did and I was so upset, she was leaning forward towards the baby doll on the floor tongue kissing it! Now you tell me why would an 8 year old be doing such an act and where is she seeing this? I don’t just blame TV, Movies, Videos etc... I blame the household in which she is brung up in.
      She may have even witnessed her mother in the act because she is that kind of person, but to see her doing it made me so upset and I screamed at her about it and asked her why she was doing it and where did she get that idea from she wouldn’t tell me. So me being in the state I’m currently in just couldn’t deal with it mentally so I packed up her things called my brother and took her to him, I told him what took place and that he as an absent father in the same household with her need to talk to her.
      I love my neice and want to be a big part of her life again, but I don’t want her ill-learned acts to become a part of my g-baby’s way of playing with dolls or anything else.

    • @Annie, yes I know kids will be exposed to all sorts of things, but it is up to us the parents to limit as much as possible and like you said if there is something that is too mature for their little minds it is our job to discuss it with them, but unfortunately many don’t.

    • Agree with you, Neicy!...we monitored everything our son watched as a child...when he hit the age of about 10, his cousin, who was allowed to view very violent movies at a young age, pulled out a very violent movie at his house and I was not there, so of course, he watched it and after that it was always a big fight with him because he was now exposed to this crap.

    • Niecy, I agree with you and I would have done the same thing.  Parenting is a full time job and to many parents are on a permanent vacation.

    • @Eva YES! I was very disturbed at her antics and she is too young to even know about tongue kissing in the first place. I know even with my g-baby she will one day soon come to know of this as well, but I want to try to keep it from her as long as I possibly can. Thanks for understanding.happy

    • heart that poor little child. Remember it’s not her fault that she is being exposed to things she has no way of understanding. Kids show what they know and sometimes it’s innocence for the age sometimes it’s exposure to crap beyond their years.
      But as you know I believe in keeping a child a child as ling as you can and watch every step of the way. I don’t believe in pushing them to grow up heck they have a life time for that.
      But with Mellisa usually we have seen the movies first but even at 14 almost 15 by 23 days I made the mistake. She is all about the musicals and I forgot parts of Chicago until watching it with her. Sigh but we finished it and talked about it.
      I think Neicy what I would have done but it’s easier said than done was talked to her about appropriate behavior in your house.
      Regardless of it now I think when she comes back your going to have to have that conversation right after you talk to the mother.
      Poor little one. She is the one that loses when parents aren’t parents
      Makes me sad but I would have protected Mel too in that situation

    • Ok, that would shock me to see an 8 yr old “tongue kissing” a doll. And I thought this age range is for watching movies like, “The little Mermaid“, etc. Call me old-fashioned, but it’s my opinion that the longer there is till a young child is exposed to sex and violence, the better they wil sleep at night and not be scared.

    • I hear you Cris, I would have talked with her but it upset me so bad my mental state just wasn’t up for it on a good day I would have sat her down and talked to find out where she learned it from etc... but I just wasn’t up for it. But in the household she lives in and her surroundings anything goes her mom is too busy trying to get and please and keep a man instead of making her 3 kids first, and I fault my brother too, because he could do better by her, but he too is caught up in a marriage to a selfish woman of 2 kids and she puts her self first before her kids as well. My brain nor heart can’t handle all that right now.
