Default Things Other Parents Think Are OK.

So My son who is 3 just came home the other day and goes. "Who you Gonna Call?"

I bust out "Ghost Busters!" He laughs hysterically and goes on to repeat a little more of the music. Now I am thinking wait a second. So I ask him What happens at the end. He Goes on to tell me about a Giant White Monster going after the Ghost Busters. I am Instantly Furious.

There is no way my 3 year old son should be watching that movie. I could not believe that any sane adult would let kids that age watch it. I am Livid.

I taught my little girl(2) to say "Nobody puts Baby in a corner". My wife didn't think it was funny when she told my daughter to go to a timeout.

From the Kid's side of it, let me say that I watched stuff like that when I was little(I saw Scary Movie when I was 10 and was laughing the loudest in the theatre) and I'm fine. Actually...Some of my earliest childhood memories are of listening to Flo and Eddie(My Mom's favourite...Terrible stuff) and I can safely say that the jokes you're worried about your kid hearing, he doesn't get.

You're worried about Ghostbusters?

My three year old's favorite movie is Saw.

I don't want my kid to know words that I can't type on a message board. I also don't want him sexualized at a young age. Nothing good can come from it.

Ghostbusters? Really? I have more of a problem with Harry Potter and Chronicles of Narnia than I do with Ghostbusters.

Dear God I hope you are joking. I watched that once and wish I could undo it.

Dude, it's a scary world. I know a day care teacher who lets her sons (5 and 3) watch Chucky movies to 'calm them down'.

I bet she watches Nightmare on Elm Street to get in the mood.

At any rate, I'm sure we can all agree that, for comedic relief, nothing beats watching the Oakland Raiders.

I think By my not changing with the Ebb and Flow of Society I am now going to be looked at as a nutjob. I still get offended when people lie to me. Old School I guess.

I hear you. PArents elsewhere should take a few moments to consult about these things before they do it. I don't particularly view GB's as a movie that would cause any problems, but as a parent I would consult the other kid's parents before viewing.

I know. I was like 3 when the 1st Die Hard came out, and i went around saying Yippee Kaya Mother****er, because i thought John McClain was a bad mother****er.

i was born in a time of Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Robocop, and other ultra violent movies.

i say be happy your kid is watching Ghostbusters and isn't watching **** like Saw or Hostel.

Let me be the first to say that I do not think that the social Development of Europe and Australia to be anything to be striven for. I can see nothing positive coming from that.

Dude, now I'm no parent, but you can't shelter your kid from language no matter how hard you try. Plus, he's not going to pick up on ANY of the sexual innuendo of Ghostbusters...he'll only see it as a fun movie where they fight marshmellows at the end.
Seriously, relax dude. I watched John Waters movies when i was like 9 and somehow turned out just fine.

Ghostbusters is awesome. I think everyone should be required to memorize that movie by the time they're ten years old.

My Kids are not Sheltered. But I do control access to everything they watch on TV. On the other hand they are free to fry bugs with a magnifying glass. And when they Turn 12 Each one will get a .22 Rifle.
