I have a 4 year old daughter who will be 5 in june. and a 3 year old son...
My mom just let them listen to i like big butts by sir mix alot and let them watch the video. Am i wrong in thinking this is not a good song for them to listen to? I got into a fight with my mom about it because i made her turn it off, and she just thinks im the worst parent in the world because "its life, and its normal" but i dont really see how letting my child listen to a song that has half naked girls dancing and talking about b****s and hoes and talking about taking them home... Idk did i over react?

I grew up listening to worse things, so I really wouldn't care. But they're your kids and I think you should be in charge of what they see and hear.

I don't think you are overreacting. I think anything that wouldn't be considered G rated, with kids that age, should be left up to the parents to decide and everyone else should respect that. I can understand maybe making a poor decision, but not arguing with the parent about it afterwards!

Thanks, OP... now I have that song stuck in my head. :)


But yeah... regardless of how harmless someone else thinks it is, she should have respected your wishes.

This!!! and sadly my kids listen to the same things I did when I grew up and my almost 4 year old knows how to work apple products better than I do.

Just because it's life and they're going to be exposed to it eventually doesn't mean your mom should be intentionally exposing it to them.... ever, but especially this young.

So did I. I remember listening to NWA, 2 Live Crew, etc.



OP, you have the final say and your decision should be respected.
