I screen any TV programs/movies before my DS watched it. I've been doing this since he was about a year old. For instance, we don't watch any adult TV shows in front of him and we are VERY careful what movies we watch in front of him when it comes to violence. If there is a dead body anywhere in the show/movie, it doesn't get watched in front of him. We also don't watch anything that contains violence of any kind toward another being, whether it's a "monster" versus a human or a human versus a human or a "monster" versus a "monster". We've been very strict about violence on the TV. That said, we are not as strict about sexual situations. If we're watching a movie with implied nudity, sometimes we've even watched something with a "butt shot" in it in front of my DS. It has recently been said to me that I need to be LESS concerned with the violence and MORE concerned with nudity and sex. At what point did you start screening your child's viewing habits and to what degree?Answer Question

Never screened tv of any kind. Well maybe some XXX type nudity/sex. I believe kids need to see what is happening in the world. I didn' want my kids to become adult and freak out. Their is so many things, that parents do not let their kids see now days. Poor kids are going to freak out when they get older. Do you let your kids watch cartoons? Most cartoon have tons of violence in them.
