No one ever said the simpsons were for kids. It's an American
viewpoint that believes if it's animation or cartoon it's for kids.
I won't go on the Japanese tangent, because people often
misunderstand what I'm saying. However, we own a lot of animation
that my kids have never seen, in fact a whole wall! It's just a
different medium, I think the program directors were initially
trying to lure kids in and set the time before they're bedtime.
Parents need to take control and should watch what they're kids are
viewing. I'm amazed that a lot of kids in my son's 1st/2nd grade
class have their own private email account, and think somehow he's
less than because I won't let him have one. We have a family one,
that way every pervert on the internet won't bombard him with porno.
You saw what happened a few months ago on Getty and to some of us
privately. I want to know what my kids watching and he never goes on
the internet, I find the sights for him. He has computer games he
plays and doesn't feel he's missing out on anything yet.
