Would you allow your 13 year old watch Everybody Loves Raymond?


What does your 13 year old like to watch?

I didn't at first...but I never really noticed how many sexual jokes there are until he started watching it. I'm on the fence with it right now :/

Yep, sure would.

Idk how you've kept a 13yo from knowing about sex with all the instant info available to kids and kids' friends now days, but I think it's good for innocence to last as long as possible. On the other hand, at 13, how has he not even begun puberty? I think you may need to relax a bit. Is he your 1st child or only child?

He knows about sex, he knows more than he should know about sex. He's my only teenager. I adopted him recently, he's been living with us for a year. I'm kind of struggling with the whole situation...I want to make sure I'm doing what's best for him....but I have no idea how to raise a teenager. especially a teenager with mental health issues, behavioral issues, trust issues...you name it

By 13 I had read all of the anne rice books, and seen whatever movies I wanted to see that were rated R. A 13 year old knows what's going on if you're referring to sexual innuendos, so they aren't going to be damaged watching Raymond

I do! I assure you, I very much know how to raise a teenager like that successfully. And Everybody Loves Raymond is fine.

My oldest is 13.5 and has never asked to watch that show.  I don't see why it would be appealing to her at all.  She's pretty young at heart though and has not really started puberty or been overly inquisitive about sex.  She doesn't have much time for TV but likes to shows like watch Once Upon A Time, Wonder Years, Full House and Haunting Hour when she has a free hour.

Sure it's better than Family Guy or South Park or heaven forbid The Simpsons.  I can't stand any of those shows.
