Children must be protected by their parents. If we ask governmnets to enforce laws as to who can say what or see what, we head toward dictatorships. It's the responsibility of each parent to regulate what happens with their children, and nobody else!

Censorship is tyrrany! Sorry, but all it takes to deal with that is for parents to change the channel.

Cobrateacher, THANK YOU! For some reason parents are now starting to want the goverment to take care of their kids for them, feed them, clothe them, teach em to read, teach them to drive, etc.. I mean come on people, did the goverment make whoopee then have a baby? No. you did. so get off your buts and go raise your kid.

I dont put anything on tv that isnt suitable during the day that helps, I cant stop the public or change how they behave but you know they see responsible adult respectable actions from me their father our families and friends a lot more than they see anything vulgar, if im bringing them up right seeing the odd "wrong thing" will not affect who or what they are when they are older because im showing them positively how to live every single day.

I dont just teach them once a day they see me more than they see anybody else they see my positive attitude more reguarly than anything else. They also know they can talk to me about anything they see and are unsure about, like I said good parenting can help to make sure that other influences do not influence the child to much, at the same time you cant hide them from everything. I also find it disturbing that you can try and judge how im bringing up my children from a few sentences I wrote, why would I only teach my children once a day? im always talking to them and they watch me all the time of course my positive influence will be stronger than anything else, the fact im their mother alone helps with that because its me they look to for guidance!

Anyway I dont think I m succeeded as all says media is right Thanku Ganesh

unfortunately I don't think we can! However, they are not going to stay innocent for too long and the same types of things were happening when you were a child but you just don't remember. Everyone thinks that it wasn't as bad when they were kids and things are different now but intimate scenes have been happening for centuries. And although some things should be kept in doors, sooner or later your kids are going to see it.

I can't control the world, but I can control how my kids see it. I told my children from the moment they could understand, there are far more stupid people in the world than there are intelligent ones. But, nature makes sure intelligent people can spot them a mile away so they no not to be like them. One of the sure signs is vulgarity in public, including on TV. I don't have a problem with them copying what they see and hear that is negative nor being impressed with it.

The only thing that you can do is to avoid taking children to places that tend to have obscene things going on. On that note, I do not see the point of censoring what children see in media when kids are constantly being influenced by what they see in real life. Sure, some of the more adult content would be best to show at night, but protecting them from vulgarity in media is pointless if there is vulgarity in public places. However, if you, as a parent, can draw a fine line between what is accepted and what is not accepted, and set a good example for your child, then things should be alright. There is no perfect child, they are going to make mistakes along the way, they are going to say or do the wrong things every once in a while, but it is learning from these mistakes that shape who they are and how they behave.

Oh yeah, and while we're at it, let's fine everyone who smokes in public because they might be encouraging your child to smoke. And, lets fine every one for every curse word they utter, because your child might hear it and be tempted to say it themselves. Let's punish the other kids for making dirty jokes because that's vulgar and it will influence your children. If you're so concerned about the influence of the public and the media on your children, then don't expose them to it. Shelter your kids and keep them away from the reality of the world.
