It seems like no one cares and I can't fathom letting my kids listen to the filth on the radio stations. You wouldn't expose them to these things in "real life". You would prefer they not go out and be promiscuous, do drugs and think life is all about getting money. So why do parents let them feed their minds with it?
I don't understand the double standard so I really want to know how you feel on this whether you do or don't let your kids listen to it all.

I used to get into this with my family when I was growing up. I listened to everything. Rap, hip hop, country and heavy metal. When my cousin and I discovered Marilyn Manson, you would have thought we were walking around with signs that said "I worship Satan." Even being exposed to all different kinds of music, I never dealt drugs, sold my body, killed animals to sacrifice to the devil or killed anyone. I never joined a gang listening to hip hop. Never beat up or hated on gay people listening to Eminem. Never sold or did drugs listening to Bone Thugs n Harmony. If I choose to let my child listen to a certain song, I don't let it "feed their minds." I feed their minds. I use it as an opportunity to teach them that most of the time, what the artist is singing about isn't reality or if it is and I don't agree with it, we talk about WHY i don't agree with it. I think if we just TALK to our kids, they will be OK.
