  • Most kids at that age dont listen to their parents, I know I tried not to but my mom was very persistent! I do believe that a more positive outlook on things would be good for everyone. Yeah we need to know the bad stuff, but could we have some good stuff too!?

  • Don't look to television, join the PTA and kids sports teams (soccer, baseball, football, basketball, tennis, dance, etc.) There you will find active involved parents and happy children. Girls scouts and boy scouts, 4H, church groups. The list goes on and on.

  • I think if TV was like this I would go crazy. I like seeing others mess up in a fictional was so I can laugh and say "not me" I do watch the news and my kids all discuss things that are inappropriate. But The entertainment industry inst responsible for teaching my kids about anything. That is my job.
