  • I think that if your uncomfortable with it then yes, you should stop.  I don't let my children listen to "my" music because I don't want them asking me what stuff means.  I curse like a sailor so that's not what really bothers me, it's the sexual lyrics that make me uncomfortable, so they don't hear it.

  • I let my son listen to whatever I listen too, just as my parents did with me. If there was something I wasnt supposed to say, I was just explained why, and I stopped saying it...look up Mr Cab Driver, by Lenny Kravitz if you dont know it. I knew every word at 3. But I didnt say the bad words. People put too much stock in how music can influence someone, they like to find blame in places other than themselves.

  • I let my kids listen to the same things as me... radio edits mostly. but if there is something I hear in the some that I just dont like for them I change it. I also buy my older son kids bop so he can listen to the songs he likes but they change them up just a bit to make them kid friendly.

  • I do not know what music you listen to. But there are many songs that are very inappropriate for kids.

  • I try not to shelter my kids from much. They do listen to the music that I listen to. I always explain whats right and whats wrong and they know how to behave very well. I have never wanted to shelter my kids. I always will talk to them about anything that they want to talk about.

  • If you are worried enough to ask the question then yes, stop it. I listen to Country and don't really have a problem with him repeating the words.

  • I like this songs called Blue Dress by Depeche Mode and also Sex Dwarf by Soft Cell. I do not listen to them in front of my daughter. I listen to other music though... like Blondie, Blue Oyster Cult, the Cure, and Smashing Pumpkins.
