Jamie Lee Curtis isnt a conservative parent- she's brilliant!

I saw Jamie Lee Curtis on Rachel Ray today. She said how she was at a book signing(she writes childrens books) when an 11 y/o girl asked her to sign a copy of the "Halloween" movie (Rated R) which JLC was in. JLC asked to see the girl's mom, & said she gave her the "look" & said "she's 11 y/o, what were you thinking!?" JLC says she takes a conservative approach to parenting- I say she's dead-on! More parents need this common sense (not conservative) approach when dealing w/ what kids see & do!

  • I agree totally with JLC! how can you let a 3 year old watch Halloween. Parenting is NOT just go do whatever whenever! Parents are there as guides to use their BRAINS in determining age appropriateness, maturity level, etc.

    Parenting is an ADJECTIVE...Parenting is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting refers to the activity of raising a child rather than the biological relationship

    Kid will grow physically no matter what a parent does. But parenting takes effort, not a free for all!

  • I didn't see it. But if someone said that to me, I'd be very annoyed.

  • I sat beside him and explained how it was a costume just like the ones in his costume box. I explained cameras and angles and acting. He learned a lot. He is super intelligent and very verbal. He was mature enough to handle it and wanted to watch and know more.

    Will I let my future kids watch? Depends on them and how they are and how they think and act.

  • She said that to the mother. How horrible of her to say something like that in a public place!

    Off the topic, Jamie Lee Curtis may be intersex (both male and female). There have been stories for years and her 2 children are adopted. Intersex people almost always can't have children. Around the time her children were adopted there were many storied and she never denied them. It's too bad if she is intersexed it would have been a good opportunity to come out and educate the public about how common it is for babies to be born intersexed and the lifelong problems they face.

  • Wow, what things you must think of me...

    My son was watching all of that by age 3. He has suffered no ill effects from it. He is 14 now.
