Along with the viewing of these clips, check out below each trailer at the comments posted.




A programmed child is an easy target for society. It whats society want... bunch of little robots lacking of a mind of their own.


That is a very true statement, and that is exactly what they are doing to your children. Don't come down on me for not raising a drone of society that will easily be manipulated by the ways of this society. My child has more of his own mind then the rest of them. These kids are herded off to a school to be "taught" each day. They are controlled to want what the TV shows them, rather than make up their own mind.

I agree with most of what you're saying. TV is definitely a problem, which is why limits should be set. There's also parental controls, in our house anything beyond pg-13 requires a password. Since I've chosen (for now) to attach my TV to a system that delivers it's own pre-determined content, I cannot complain about that content, I can only choose another channel.

It's the negative reaction to the word "naked" in the title that intrigues me.
To me, a family restaurant called "Hooters" is more inappropriate, and even THAT doesn't bother me in the least.

I guess I just don't subscribe to the whole "Gasp in horror and cover the childrens eyes and ears whenever anything with even a hint of adult content occurs" mentality. The genie is out of the bottle, and that stuff is out there, and kids are going to witness it either way, so I tend more to use it as an opportunity to give them guidance.

If we don't de-mystify something, then it becomes an object of fascination to kids, and THAT'S when the trouble usually occurs.

Others have mentioned what it's like in other countries and it's so true, as bad as you think TV and advertizing is here (USA) it's much more "adult" nearly everywhere else. And it's paraded right out in front of everyone, kids included, and they don't stare in shock, or point and giggle, or even walk around like desensitized zombies. It's just part of lifes backdrop, like street signs and window displays.
Makes me wonder when/why we all became so uptight.

I cant believe this thread is still going, its just so asinine to know that you get heated off the word "naked". You started this topic trying to sell us on the idea that our kids will be conditioned to sex because of the word "naked".
This not only is utter garbage, but FAR from the truth. You then give an example of making a TV show called "B**** please" refering to a show about dogs. What you fail to realize is the word "B****" and the word "naked" are COMPLETLY opposite in terms of negativity. The word "naked" isn't negative in ANY respect, its just what things are when they are'nt coverd by something. Who cares? Your trying to tell me you've never chased your kid around when he's naked yelling "I'll get you naked boy" laughing at your naked kid? I know I have, and it's quit ammusing. Was I a bad parent for letting my kid hear and know what the word "naked" is? I dont think so.

You know what the show is about, and you know it isn't bad and showing anything with sex. Rock n' Roll? Maybe? But grow up, you cant tell me you enjoy some of your old rock albums, even if all you listen to is christian music. You make it sound like satan himself is coming out of the TV controlling our kids by giving them guns and porno, hardly the case here.

You then give examples of Barbie dolls and how its selling sex to our kids. Well, have you thought about how Barbie dolls were marketed back in the day? They were marketed as a sexy toy. Do they look the same? No, but thats because the style of clothes and fashion have changed themselves. I assume your a mother. If so, did you ever have a Barbie doll? Was your mom a horrible person for letting you play with a doll with huge breasts that has a perfectly sexy face, hair, and body that you can style to your liking? Uh oh, maybe you were controlled by the media back in the day and now your seeking revenge and making sure your son will NEVER go through the same torment as you once did.


Look, times change, and with it fashion and pop culture goes with it. If you want to raise you kids with good intentions, then embrace these facts and teach him better morals about love and how to treat a women properly(ie. opening doors, putting coats on in the cold, making sure shes safe, never abussing her, etc etc). Tell your kids to have common sense and know when they are being tricked. If you keep your kids in the dark about everything, then they WILL find out about it sooner or later down the road when your not there to help. If you keep your kids in the dark about sex and one day they go off to college then they might just go on a sex-spree and catch some disease just cause they never were taught or experimented with earlier. I'm not telling you to let your kids go have sex, I'm merely giving you examples of what could happen if you keep your kids like this.

Talk to your kids, know what they do and what they like, teach them good morals, play with them, laugh with them, cry with them. Just dont keep them away from experiences and culture, cause then your no better then the media itself. If they dont see it on TV, they will in books, magazines, papers, school, friends... hell, even the bible. Then they may be ashamed to bring up questions because they are to affraid to ask. You cant get away from sex. Why? Maybe cause its all around us, and its the one thing that brought you and me here on this earth. Teach your kids safty, but dont keep them in the dark.

No time here, but did you watch the link with the nine year old (if he's even that) sticking his face in the breasts of the babysitter!?! This is Nick people. Will this teach children to be respectful of women or just turn them in to raging hormones.

Definitely too far, for NICK, but we're kidding ourselves if we think some boys of that age aren't all ready thinking along those lines. Again, I just see it as an opportunity to open a discussion though...

We are getting nowhere with this.

Children are ruined with a controlled environment to the point they cant function in society. A lot of good stuff can be said about home schooling but in many cases, its nut jobs that want to take their children out of the real world but never realize they have to one day re-enter it.

When they do, assuming they have not been properly socialized, as so many of them arent, they cant function in society. They often have very poor social skills and frankly turn out rather 'odd' to most people.

Then, there are the kids home schooled for the right reasons. The right way. Taught at home to ensure a great education, in play groups or other activities that put them with their peers, and not told 'you are home schooled to keep you away from that sick, bad world.'

If that is your reason for homeschooling, it isnt a good one. For keeping your baby tied to your apron string wont EVER happen... I have an 18 yr old. I know. Either you cut the string or they do... it isnt an option. And if they do NOT cut the string themselves... us Mama's didnt do our job. Kids arent 'suppose' to want to lay up on their parents. They are, if well-adjusted, so ready to fly the coop at 18 an anvil couldnt hold them down.

Other kids, not so well adjusted, you either have to continue to raise until they are 30 or until you have to kick them out. Not pretty. I suggest you scoot them closer to the door as time and maturity permits or your looking for a lot of trouble.

Where are we supposed to be going? With a thread?

Any cases of home-schooled children not functioning in society? I don't need links, a library reference will do.

The nut jobs actually do realise it. In my experience, most home-schoolers end up back at public school sometime around 14. And those are the ones with very educated parents. You do realise home-schooling is sanctioned and has requirements set-fourth by the state?



When they do, assuming they have not been properly socialized, as so many of them arent, they cant function in society. They often have very poor social skills and frankly turn out rather 'odd' to most people.


Again, any cases? References? Links?

Ok, so your premise here, is that alot of home-schoolers are being kept away from the big bad world. Perhaps you should look at it from a different perspective. Instead of the big bad world, they are being kept from rediculous school system.

A vast majority of home-schoolers whom return to public schools are 2 years ahead of their public counter-parts. Tell you anything?

You sound too mechanical here for me. You birthed the child. Did you do it for the benefit of society only?

Before you preach on a topic you need to atleast know the facts. Nextguyinline had it right. Once he was out of public school, we far exceeded the lessons being taught there. He actually passed through subjects his peers had not even began to study.
My son was not pulled out of school to protect him from the big bad world, he was taken out so that he could actually learn. Excuse our school systems for being overcrowded and kids not getting the proper support needed. Some kids do just fine in that setting mine was not one of them. I do believe he will go back to public school in his higher education. Until you know first hand about somone's personal life and decisions I would be careful about passing judgement on them littleone. What makes you so much smarter than the rest of us? So far you haven't given me any good reason to your side of this story, except saying that my child will turn out socially awkward and not be ready for society. simply because I don't expose him to sex at nine years old. Well I have news for you, my child will turn out just fine. The only difference is, that he won't be a raging hormonal basket case trying to screw whatever he can find and using girls just to fulfill his desires. He will be respectful and courteous of girls and hopefully establish a relationship with one before jumping into the bed. I guess this does mean he will be socially inacceptable, as that is the youth of our society.

Well that's fantastic, I'd like to think I had something to do with that by me and my friends writing to Nick.

Maybe they (and a few thousand other people) realized how inappropriate, not only the name, but also the content was.

Naked Brothers are good but could be Great if we toured together!!

Check our our Music Video at Blackout Band and see if you agree.

Their single, Video Games, elicits the laughter of recognition from kids as well as their forty to fifty-something parents each time a new crowd hears it. This comic ballad mocks the stereotype of today’s youngsters as spoiled rotten video game addicts. It's all clearly tongue-in-cheek and these hard working boys appear anything but spoiled. Most surprisingly, Hunter Watson's performance is Mick Jagger cool despite a refreshing absence of explicit lyrics. But what really makes the song stay on replay in the listener's mind is the catchy pop-style melody, with it's wry references to a diverse group of artists, from Dylan and the Monkees to the Black-Eyed Peas.

sad, sad that you would use this discussion thread as an advertisement to your own "band" Lyrics aside, these kids are rude (squeezing boobies) and the content is not appropriate. I really am tired of saying it. If you can't see that a grown lady sticking her cleavage in a child's face and then the child sticking his face even further into her breasts as inappropriate, then you have issues on your own. Please, Go advertise elsewhere! This is a discusion forum.

I agree with everything tjack said above, but thought I'd put in my two cents about this bit.

The country was founded by a fairly uptight group. The usual progression in things tends to be an eventual balancing--the pendulum swings from one extreme to the other, from Puritanical to somewhat childish, in-your-face sexuality, with hangers-on from both sides, and little in the center. Eventually it'll even itself out and we can get past the fairly immature reactions on both sides.

Still, I find it amusing that in this country nudity seems ALWAYS to equal sex to some people. Someone's always going to have themselves a panic attack if someone even SAYS the word 'naked'. Never mind it's a pretty natural state, and it's a fair bet that kids have seen naked before; they do take baths after all. Most of the world doesn't see it as a big deal; my aunt had to learn to deal with it when she visited Africa and bathed in a river with the other women and kids. Japan has hot spring baths that aren't always segregated by gender, and the list goes on. But in America everyone panics. *sigh*

Until you check out the content, I wouldn't speak upon the topic you are so sure you know about. Fine, the word naked may not be so bad, did you happen to view the clips I provided earlier? In case you missed it here it is again. YouTube has tagged this clip as this:

Jesse the sexy band tutor:

This video may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as flagged by YouTube's user community.

Give it try, see what happens. You can also get the clip directly from their site,

This clip has been blocked by YouTube, and yet this content is shown on Nick to our kids? Reguardless of the "Naked" issue, you can't argue with this.

I never commented on the content. Just on the initial reaction any hint of 'naked' seems to evoke IN GENERAL, not with you in specific. You needn't be so touchy.

It's up to you to decide what your children watch, have at it, I have no problems nor do I care what you decide is appropriate/inappropriate.

Maybe you don't care, but I care about the future of the society that I and my children live in. Now maybe I shouldn't have been so touchy with you on the subject, but it just seems I have been repeating myself on this topic for awhile.
