That's like saying it's okay to let your children watch 18+ movies with violence and killing and robbing because of the lessons they will learn from it.

Again, the question is not, and the concern is not controlling the other parents times, or whether we should find a positive to allow the child to watch because it is watched at the other parent's home. Question is, whether, in your opinion (regardless of the other parents) the music videos are appropriate for a 8 year old.

I know the other parent would not ignore and come back with a nasty response. That is typical of her. Asking the other parent to not allow children to watch 18+ shows with inappropriate content in them, or playing inappropriate video games isn't really non sense now is it ? If it is, then why don't they show adult content to children at the school to teach them about strangers ? Or why the movies don't allow adults to take children with them to 18+ movies because of the lessors they may learn from them ?

Anyway, this is going into too many tangents.

What is YOUR opinion on FNAF for children under age of 12?

I know. It's not a protection matter. Unless the child was having nightmares and uncontrollably peed herself.

There has been times where she has been scared of someone breaking into her home and steeling her away, and I have had to alleviate these concerns for her.

It does suck when the other parent exposes child to inappropriate content.

Just curious, Tayken, if the other parent watched porn with their 7 year old child, would you say my concerns would be nonsense as well? Or does that have something to teach the children to ? What if the other parent and their partner had sex in front of the child ?Just want to be sure your response is only regarding FNAF and not Grand Theft Auto, Family guy,Eminem or other 18+ subject matters.

ignorant response. There are many things CAS doesn't care about that are not protection matters but litigimate concerns. There are many things CAS simply can't prove also. Doesn't mean you should do nothing as a parent and watch your children be ruined. It's not even called interfering unless you are physically there.

If you don't agree with it. Then don't allow it and advise other parent of your disapproval.

GtaV , Family Guy are both inappropriate for children under 18. Agreed. Five nights at Freddy I would say is inappropriate for children under 13. It is rated TEEN after all.

OP makes good point about porno. It is age inappropriate content just as the other items. We have media ratings for a reason. Don't mind Sad and Tired rolling her eyes. She's just sad and , well, a bit Tired.

I would not call CAS. Just an email sharing your concerns and communicating. Other parent communicated her concern of me putting videos of child and I on YouTube and I respected her concern by advise of lawyer and cooperated with her. CAS would have told her to piss off. My lawyer wanted to rebut their allegations that we don't cooperate.Your concerns are valid and hopefully she will cooperate and not expose child to clearly age innapropriate content.

Taykenís answer was tongue in cheek but you right fighters miss the humour and the subtle message.

Bing. Couldn't have said it better myself.

What the "right fighters" are looking for is something to fight over. If it is conflict they seek then, tell the other parent how to parent. Conflict will never end. Conflict addiction is thick with some posters.

Ignorant question from the OP. The OP can talk a good game about not wanting to control the other parent but, their motive is transparent.

Really. Ruined? Maybe they may start liking heavy metal. Gasp! EVIL! Maybe they will grow up to be Satanists. Interference doesn't require physical presence.

Its called "indirect interference"... Parenting Time Interference

Ratings are guidelines. They are not the law. They are also set by a bunch of idiots.

I am with Dee Snider on all this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0Vyr1TylTE

I think it is okay to let your children watch 18+ movies with violence and killing and robbing because of the lessons they will learn from it.

Frankly, I have no problems letting my kids watch movies with sexual content either.

The idea is to be around while this viewing is happening, and as a parent have contextual discussions. My children are young but I have already had multiple discussions around concepts of consent, war, genocide, ethics, date rape, racism, sexism, gender roles, etc. If your plan is to wait until your kids are teenagers, then I'm sorry but you will have missed the window in which you can have meaningful input.

I told my kids that the game had jump scares and a moderately disturbing storyline, and let them decide. They chose not to play, but had they chosen otherwise I would have let them play.

When something is forbidden, it becomes enticing.

I do limit screen time, but that's a separate issue. To me, content concerns me less than the actual screen time. Playing an "educational" game is about as useful as playing FNAF. I limit my own screen time as well.
