When I was growing up, I never had anything censored- movies, music, books, etc. I got to read and watch anything I wanted. We have been spending time with family who always asks "What is the rating?" before letting kids watch shows. Anything over PG-13, we cannot watch while any of the kids (including the 15 year old) are awake. They also are very strict with what they say and what the kids can listen to. 


I plan to raise my baby with little-to-no censors. Of course other than "cussing" and himself. The only time I think I would censor is during the "mockingbird stage" and/or if he happens to be especially precocious for some reason.

Can't there be a simple poll. Like yes, I censor. or No, I do not.. My answer isn't even on there.

I am sorry, but I wanted more info than that because there are different stages of censorship. What is your answer?

Only for my sanity. Like I banned dora and calliou in the toddler stage.

Right now it's mostly only graphic stuff that gets sensored.

Of course I don't let my kids watch certain things. Will I let my 10 year old watch Dexter? Weeds? Any TVMA show? Nope. Do my 17 & 15 year olds? It depends honestly.

I don't censor much. They don't need to see bake bodies or sex scenes at 5 and 7. Action scenes are fine and they know not to curse.

I don't really censor based on ratings, because I feel like a PG-13 rating these days is like an R rating on an older movie. Also, I don't necessarily think a bad word here or there is terrible, but if 90% of the sentences are bad words then it's a definite no. Violence is probably the biggest thing I censor.

So basically I assess the show/movie and decide if MY child can handle the content

No we do not. My parents rarely censored things for us and we rarely censor things for our kids.

I censor things that are of adult content like anything gory, sexual, or with excessive cursing. I also censor shows featuring characters who's habits I don't want my kids to pick up like any of those obnoxious live action shows on Disney. those kids are obnoxious as hell, and yes, that part may just be for my benefit lol.
