Earlier this morning on the Hollywood Dirt, I was talking about how Angelina Jolie was not happy that Rhianna was on her kid's playlists and did something about it.  My son called me to remind me I did the same thing when he was a kid!

It wasn't a playlist that was censored, it was the shows that they were watching.  I've never been a fan of 'South Park', not because it's not funny, but because it's just not my type of humor.  That, and it became popular when my boys were really young and I didn't think it was appropriate. 

Then one day, Ryan, my oldest, came home from his dad's house and told me that he was allowed to watch it over at his house.  I was furious!  Ryan asked if I had ever seen an episode and when I said no I hadn't, he said I should try and catch some re-runs during the day so I could see that it wasn't so bad.  So I did.  And this is part of the episode that I saw:

Granted, the language was bleeped, but the idea that my kids were watching this kind of stuff just made me want to rip their dad's head off!  But since I couldn't control their dad's tv, I had to just grin and bear it when they were over there.

So now Angie's kids are the ones who are being exposed to questionable stuff, i.e., Rhinanna's 'Birthday Cake' song.  In case you haven't seen it, here it is:

Um.  Yeah.  Notttttt appropriate for some adults, much less anyone's 7 and 8 year olds.  So the question is, what would be the appropriate age for a kid to see this kind of video or hear this kind of song?  Should they be allowed to see and hear everything because they're going to hear it at school?  How do you handle this kind of stuff as a parent?
