How do you handle media exposure?
09/05/2012 at 03:44 AM

My kids are 10 & 12, and the know a certain amount of general 'health class' type topics. But I find myself swapping radio stations when dj's do a 'bit' about some cheating girlfriend, or advertise some hot body contest. I have found cable channels like adult swim and I even feel abc family shows deal with topics above the level I'd like my kids to see. Now with the political ads and news topics everywhere I have more concerns. The other day I had to explain what abortion meant and what the different arguments are, then topics like gay rights have even been uncomfortable. I know they will need to understand these things in time of course, but the stuff is everywhere now. I'd like to hear what your experiences are and what you've done to manage this exposure.

Thanks
Jon
