Should a young kid sing about....

Stuff that they don't understand?
I was watching a couple of youtube videos today of a 12 yr old girl who was singing covers of things like "Falling to Pieces" "Mine" and "Rolling in the Deep". She was good but I'm not sure how I feel about her singing these songs that are so far beyond what she's experienced.

FYI I"m not bashing just asking for fun.

  • I, too, have a problem with that. My oldest is 13. Last summer, you want to know what he asked me?! He asked me, "What is erectile dysfunction?" LOL I immediately asked him where he heard it. "I heard it on TV." I explained what it was then I made him ask his Father:) DH and I had a good laugh over that one. Ha ha ha In January, we dropped all cable except basic. DH & I watch the cable in our bedroom. My 3 DSs don't get to watch cable much. They are only allowed to watch what DH & I have approved on Netflix.

  • I don't have a problem with it LOL.. Remember the 80's, well Cindy Lauper had a song "she boop" that song was about masturbation.. I had no clue until I was grown but man I loved that song.. Many other songs are the same way.. I kinda like the fact they are clueless about some of the lyrics in songs.. I think the catchy tune is what they like the most.. As long as the songs are not obvious about things that are too "old" for them or cuss words, I am good with it.. Cuss words don't bother me, I just don't want a child repeating them :)

  • They probably should not be singing or saying things they don't understand.
    Dustbunny - we had the same conversation in our house about erectile dysfunction.
