So you never watched any action shows/movies?

Children aren't allowed to go to casinos and gamble. Adults are allowed to do stupid things that we protect our kids from.

No, can’t say I did. For my spouse and I, the nineties were 60-hour work weeks and backpacking on the weekends. I told you, my knowledge of pop culture from about 1985 to 2005 is pretty much non-existent. I’m not kidding.

They are 30 and 28 now, one with a newborn. They are both glad that they were not allowed and plan to have the same policy themselves. They understand that children don't always need what they want.

When you have a child, you never know how exposure to violent content will affect them. I wanted them to spend their time learning other things than to kill people for fun in video games. They didn't get to see gory movies with realistic violence until they were past the impressionable stage. They did get to see movies that were appropriate for their age. My parents, on the other hand, often took me to see movies as a child that traumatized me. I never got past watching Night of the Living Dead and Deliverance at age 12. You can't unsee things.

I meant aspire, not inspire. Nowhere did I say it inspires violence. No more than tom and jerry inspire violence. I don't know that we know enough about the effects of animated violence on children and adolescents to say one way or the other with any degree of certainty.
