How restrictive are you?

When it comes to the things that your children watch on tv or listen to on the radio?


I am fairly liberal when it comes to things like that.  The way I see it is I will teach her right from wrong.  Right now she is eating lunch (grilled chicken, pasta shells with tomato sauce and veggies) while watching Happy Tree Friends.  I know it is violent but it is cartoon violence and we all find it funny.  We like that show so much DH has been talking about dressing up as Pop and dressing DD (who is 2) up as Cub.

She already has our morbid sense of humor.

I let my son watch a movie on my ipad when he eats. It depends on what he wants to watch. he tends to change his mind a lot which drives me bonkers sometimes. But after he's done eating, we try not to let him continue watching movies on the ipad or on tv so he would just play with his toys. and thankfully it works because now he plays with his toys often. before he had no interest in toys.

I suppose I'm not to strict on most things. My sixteen year old and fourteen year old have a freedom to listen to any music out of rhe house, but in the house rap is banned. I hate it personally, and definatly don't want the little ones around it. They can watch most movies although I draw the line at porn and things of that nature. I know their smart and won't run around killing people because they saw it in a movie and take a hammer to someones head because SpongeBob did.
My little ones are only five month triplets, and I suppose I'm a bit overprotective of them. No loud music, very little television. My parents raised me with the idea that babys brains melt if they watch to much television when their little. I know its not true, but its drilled into my head so I would rather have them stare at a wall at this age until their older. I suppose old habbits die hard! 8D

My daughter watches the disney junior channel... and I wouldn't even call it watching because it doesn't hold her attention for her at all to actually sit there and watch it. She is too busy getting into everything else in the room to pay attention to that.

My dd doesn't even watch tv. Which is her choice. She'd rather play outside. She'll be 15 months on the 12th

When it isn't raining here (which it felt like that is all it did this summer) we are outside as well.

I' ve tried getting her to watch tv. I really needed a ten minute break but she wouldn't have anything to do with it. She does a lot of dancing to music though. It's rained a lot here too this summer

Yeah mine may sit still for maybe an episode then it is up wanting to dance, color, read and everything else.  They are so tiring!
