At what age did you allow your child (daughter) to watch sexual situations on tv. Like cable tv channels?
My Mom was very open with me growing up concerning sex and things. I think being exposed to it through shows and having responsible parents explain the reality of it, makes kids better informed. My Mom did not sugar coat anything. I don't remember at what age but she did let us watch some racy (not explicit) stuff approx around 12 or 13. I remember my Mom allowing us to watch rated R movies with her there watching them alongside us. My Dad on the other hand told us if we see people kissing on TV we should turn our heads the other way. so obviously my Dad was strict.
We don't have cable... but our 14 yr old has watched some shows that elude to sex having happened or wanting it. Generally we know when he watches it, because we like to watch TV together. Not too big of a deal cause we always have open conversations.
We have started letting him watch movies with some sex (no full nudity and no long involved stuff). Its just for movies we have already seen and where the plot is about MORE than sex.
She's 6 so that hasn't started happening yet. Our son is 11 and we aren't comfortable with it yet even at his age.
Same in our house
Quoting KelliansMom: My mom always had the rule that if I could talk to her like an adult about whatever we are watching I could watch it. I plan on having this same rule with my son.
My kids are 11, 7 & 5 months and I haven't let them watch that yet. They are just fine with Disney Channel.
My children are 7 1/2 & 9,they prefer the Disney Channel :-),we do have cable but I do not allow them to watch shows like that
