Well, Considering I was listening to The 2-Live Crew and had alot of it memorized when it first came out when I was 12-13 yrs old and my parents both
new what I was listening to, I can't say that banning certain music when they r young will make them any different as the grow up if they hear it or
not. Listening to it when I was young didn't affect me, Ive got no criminal record, I have a great family, a house, cars, job, my parents are still
Most rap is crap, prob like 98% of it. Id say banning things from kids will just encourage them even more to get whatever they are after, including
going behind your back. If they are playing something loud enough so you can hear it and you don't like it, tell them you don't want to hear it.
I love music, especially heavy metal, my 6 yr old hears what I listen to and she loves most of it. She really likes Ozzy. Every once in a while Ill
say to her “Rap sucks” And she looks at me like Im nuts cuz she doesnt even know what it is cuz she NEVER hears it.
My dad listened to Elvis, Patsy Kline, Alabama, The Oak Ridge Boys, Reba, Johnny Cash, all of that old good country music and I can't stand country
music today, but when I hear the music I heard growing up, I enjoy it.
I guess Im saying, if they are young enough to hear the music that you enjoy and they can't really say anything about it, I say force your music
taste on them when they are young. If they develop their taste in music hanging around their buddies when they are 12-13, chances are, they will start
listening to rap.
I didnt listen to rap when I was that age, Ive always liked the rock and metal, Im not sure where I got the 2-Live crew tape from but I didn't listen
to it because it was good or anything, I listened to it because it was funny with all the swearing. Not much was censored in my family growing up. My
parents said that just encouraged dishonesty if we had a bunch of rules if we couldn't say what we were thinking. Since I was sent to a private
Lutheran school where they didn't teach us sex education, it is possible my parents gave me the 2-Live crew tape, to teach me about sex-ed! Lol
