My 2 year old watches Family Guy...

I don't INTEND for him to actively watch it... But when I watch it he is in the room...

He loves the theme song, and says the shows name... He laughs at the show too, even though he probably doesn't understand whats going on, a character on screen will fall or laugh and he will laugh at it.

I have had a family guy ringtone on my phone since he was born and I used to play it for him to soothe him, so I guess thats where his fascination came from.

I'm a TOTAL prude when it comes to my parenting, and I don't even let him watch spongebob...

But Family Guy seems so adult that the sensitive material will just fly right over him... Or am I wrong? I know I have to stop letting him watch once he starts understanding more of the world and language...

Is it REALLY that bad that he watches it at this age?

It's probably ok right now but I'd cut it off pretty soon.

I wouldn't let my kids watch it but I don't watch either.

I don't think it makes one a horrible parent or anything. 

My son watches Hell's Kitchen & then will run around yelling "you Mucca!" (which means cow in Italian) after watching it lol. It's funny what they pick up and makes me be a bi more leery sometimes hehe

Too many sexual innuendos in FG for me. Even though my kid wouldn't get it necessarily, I'd be uncomfortable watching it in front of them.

Wait until he repeats " butt sex" or something along those lines. Mine did. No more family guy at my house.

There is no way whatsoever he understands a single one of the jokes on Family Guy.  That being said, you'll probably have to stop watching it with him around in a few years.  But I'm sure you know that.
