I was never exposed to 'childrens' music when I was growing up and don't think that an alternate version of music should be forced upon kids if it's a style that they will rarely encounter later on in life.

Of course nursery rhymes and such are integral and a useful tool but later on in their lives, I see no harm in exposing them to as much as possible whilst still being a good parent and protecting them regarding bad language, violence etc

I love horror films but I still don't watch anything too OTT in front of my 12 Y.O and this is not censorship. It's common sense as I was a child once and know what generally works or doesn't.

However being a father is a hard job because there is no manual out there to tell you if it you are doing it right. You just have to hope that you are doing the best you can.

This thread has derailed! Maybe it should go into the lounge lol

No, I think what you are saying saying is very relevant to the topic. There's more than a fine line between employing good discretion and unjustifiably trying to shelter your children from anything that might be considered "mature" or "adult", both of those words having garnered the connotations of meaning too explicit for children, when really they can just as easily denote intellectual and emotional, as well. What attitude you take on the subject obviously influences what music you play for your children, which has a direct influence in their life.
