Should a 12 year old view a rated R movie (uncensored)?
Just wondering what others think about this. IMO, heck no!

I found out today that hubby's mother took him to rated R movies when he was 12 (this was back in the 70's). First one he saw was cheech and chong's up in smoke. Man, I didn't think his mom was so clueless. I thought she had more common sense than that.

Are you kidding. 12 year olds shouldn't evenbe watching G-rated Disney movies, let alone R-rated. There is actually probably more perverted subliminal stuff in the children's media.

Depends on the movie and the child. Something like Saving Private Ryan might be a good experience for some young kids. I don't think any of them need to see Up In Smoke however.

No I don't think they should.

In my opinion nobody should watch most R rated movies, especially ones with stupid and crude humor, a good example would be "Ted" among many others.

when i was 12 i rented Monty Python's Meaning of Life by myself.

watched it 5 times in one weekend.

i had seen all of the cheech and chong movies by the time i was 16

kids are not retarded.

adults who think 12 year old kids are retarded and don't understand things like sex or drugs obviously don't remember what it was like to be 12.

Hiding information about a society from it's members is a sign of mental abuse.

Why would you want children to go into the world clueless as to what reality holds?

We know that seeing sex doesn't harm a child of that age, and people acting stupid can be used to show that such behavior isn't appropriate in reality.

Violence is a harder issue, but odds are it will turn out we should all avoid seeing violent images when possible.

But censorship isn't good. Ever.

I came up during a time where you didn't need to hear cussing on T.V., or see nudity, to enjoy it. If we were lucky, we got 3 channel's, and I was the remote. Some things should be left to the imagination. I am a 50 year old father of 5 kid's, 2 boy's, and 3 girl's, and 3 grand kid's, and I get uncomfortable being in the same room when my daughter's were in the room, watching something even a little suggestive. Modern day T.V. is the biggest downfall on society, and our kid's. They try to mimic what they see and hear. That is why the majority of kid's today have no respect for anyone in authority, police, parent's or teacher's. And to the person who stated that we if we don't remember when we were 12, yes I do. We did not sit in front of a T.V. all day, nor have cell phones, or internet. But what we did have was a wonderful world of imagination, were you could play cowboy & Indian's, ride our bike's, READ!!, camp out, and the list of things we did (legally) would surprise most kid's today. Take your kid's fishing, camping, and go outside. Hell, most schools don't even have P.E. anymore! And we wonder why all these kid's are over weight!!

I saw r rated movies younger then that. Depends on the kid and parents. Probably shouldnt have seen the shining that young. Freaked me out. Anyway, its better for the parents to see it with them, then have them see it elsewhere on their own. At least that way u can explain what was wrong (drug use, language, sex)

You must be a kid yourself. It is not censorship, it is being a responsible parent.

This sound's like the thinking of a pervert. Why do you think teen pregnancy is as high as it is.

And this explains your thinking. Mental abuse for hiding (unless they are less than 12, and it is sex), but don't let them know about violence!

Take it from someone who has raised many kids, movies drastically destroy children's thought processes and emotions brought about by such thoughts.

You're essentially asking if you should walk your child up to Pandora's Box, except in this scenario Pandora's Box has already been opened for 50 years, and one of the creatures that came out of it is already slithering around your Thigh and biting your child's back.

Or:

You and your child are swimming in a Public Pool, except instead of chlorinated water it's filled with raw sewage. You're asking if you should let your child check out the deep end.

Trust God that your child will be who he is and is supposed to be. Do your best, but don't sweat the small stuff.

While I agree with you children at the tender age of 12 are not stupid I also know that most do not understand adult humor. A lot of things that pertain to sex and drugs go over their head. Out in your face stuff they do understand, at least that they understand what they are seeing, but it just leaves them left with more questions than anything else. I disagree with allowing movies like that for 12 yr. olds.

Yes. They are looking anyway even if you like it or not. The 70's were 40+ years ago. Are you that bored that you have to look that far to get wound up?

When I say NO

I will get much criticism but I say no anyway.

12 year olds maybe smart enough to watch something but they are still too

mentally not mature enough

Their minds are still growing and the images they see in these types of things are too much for them to handle at this age.

12 is too young

Do you want your daughter to grow up fast and become a woman of the world before her time??

And maybe become pregnant? or have risky sex?

If the answer is yes; then show her a lot of r rated shows

These things, not matter what anyone says, influence a young and growing mind
