I was born in '75 and really was never sheltered from any type of movies back in the days. I remember vividly drive-in movies with my siblings watching Halloween, Friday the 13th and such... seemed like every movie in the early 80's had some naked chick or sex scene in it or some horrific way of being slaughtered...I grew up just fine. Now having kids, I try to not shelter them as well, with either music or movies. Our family movie is Step Brothers...kids have been watching it since they have been 6... My 6 year old daughter loves Full metal Jacket. Obviously certain scenes you have to fast forward at those young ages, but newer movies have more eloquent language than in the 80's and 90s... so its been somewhat of a struggle for me to watch those type of movies when you hear some colorful sexual language. Also, listening to Classic NWA with my 11 Year old was kinda cool for a minute... Until some language caused it to become somewhat a little uncomfortable...especially when Too short came on and we started listening to freaky tales and life is too short.. So the question is, what are your limits on watching movies with your kids? there are some great movie classics I'd love to watch and watch with my kids eventually...but now I am struggling when it can go from exposing our youth to great movie classics to Creepo Parent..
