    You're right I can't hide them from the bad things but it is my job to protect them as best as I can. I do tell them they are just words and we talk about what is appropriate language and what is not. However, they are kids and impressionable. If your logic was legit we would not need any sort of movie or TV ratings. We could just simply let our kids watch whatever and they want and, as you say, "they pick things up and play with them until they get bored" and then they would never say them again. The truth, however, is that kids are little "tape recorders". They hear it and they WILL repeat it. Look, I have made my points and said my peace. I have been respectful and not took shots or been rude to anyone that has expressed a different opinion. One thing I want to point out in closing. In a previous post I tried to use the word "$-e-x" when explaining some of the words and things you sometimes hear during commercials. In that post that word was replaced with "***". I find it very interesting that the FCC restricts that word being typed on this forum but yet allows it to be said on national TV commercials shown at times when young children could be watching. I think I have made my point. This will be my last response. I am going to put my kids to bed. Thank you!

    Peter, I am not asking for censorship. I am tired of sitting and watching football or some other sports event with my family. Then they allow commercials for the night time sitcoms which always makes some reference to *** or having *** or has other language. I mean come on. If you want to show such commercials put them on during late night. Otherwise, clean them up a little so they are appropriate for ALL ages. This is just common sense, NOT censorship. Please pay attention to my previous posts. I am talking about KIDS seeing and hearing things during shows that you would expect to be safe for them to watch. I don't care if you do study law. That doesn't make you an expert on raising kids in America. Besides, come to America and I will show you some absurd laws. Laws are supposed to protect the innocent not take away our rights. And believe me I am a big "freedom of speech" supporter. I'm not even asking for a law. I just want people to use some common sense when when setting up programming and think about the viewing audience. They do this with movie previews and trailers that are shown on TV. I am only asking for the same consideration with TV shows. NOT CENSORSHIP!

    Michael, I do agree with you that I do NOT want a blanket censorship. As you said "the FCC should be more stringent". As I have stated in earlier posts, we are very careful about the shows that our children watch. However, many times during shows we feel are appropriate, commercials will contain certain content that really doesn't fit in with the time slot or the show. Thanks for your comments.

    Anonymous, You didn't read what I posted. We do try very hard to monitor what our kids watch. That was my point. Many times our kids are watching shows that are ok for them to watch. Then commercials come on during the "good" shows and have bad language in them.
