Lords of Acid

  • No it doesnt mean ur gonna be a bad parent. Thats like saying just cuz someone likes to watch R rated movies they r gonna be a bad parent.

  • No, taste in music does not indicate what kind of parent you are. I listen to metal and hard rock for the most part but that doesn't mean I'm a bad parent. I might get a few odd looks from other parents who don't share my taste in music but I don't think it gives them the right to question my ability as a parent.

  • Of course it does! Don't you know I am a child beating, whoring drug addict because I don't listen to praise and worship music all day? < end sarcasm >

  • No. Really, if watching the news has taught us anything, it's to keep an eye on our neighbors who seem so "quiet and NORMAL". They're always the ones with the half-eaten bodies buried in their back yards. ;)

  • i listen to all kinds of music and expose my kids to it too....anything from classical to rock to hip hop....i try to play the clean versions of songs when i probably poke an eye out if all we listened to was kiddie stuff

  • Nope. I like and listen to everything from classical, hard/classic rock, jazz, r&b, hip-hop, country, rap and expose my kids to it too. They can sing a Beatles or an Aerosmith song, rap along with Jay-Z, name a jazz artist, and one can even play Chopin. If that's bad parenting, so be it.
