...best retort I ever heard was back in '79 as my then GF was arguing with her slightly younger sister;

'YOU CLIT!'

:lol:

Caroline, in the unlikely event someone should bring this to your attention, you are still stunning...

...surreal to talk to you face-to-face and you not have the faintest idea who I am!
:o

I only found out what it was yesterday, problem of being a girl, didn't seam too unsafe to me, I fell off the monkey climbing bars as a child, blinded for many hours, but still good fun, should we not accept these things happen and get on with it, I still have several pieces of concrete in my head all these years later, i'm fine, or am I? no, mad as a hatter's tea party but health and safety have gone tooooo far.

Nothing wrong with being a MadHatter; better than being the teapot! :lol:


I thought when I was out of psychiatric hospital, could I show the scars of being mad to the children? I thought I'd just have to hide the scars every time they came in to the kitchen when I was washing up, soon I did not and my oldest daughter asked once but I could not answer :facepalm: but I have to get on with things. Now I roll my sleeves and they do not question although I wonder what they think and whether it affects them? My mum did nothing when someone affected me and now I thank her for that, I did the same to my son and he's right as rain, what is good for some is not right for others.

I reckon that what kids see and hear can affect them. Every child is different though and the impact is lesser or greater depending upon their disposition and the viewing material in question.

In our house we have kept it simple for the 12yr old lad. He's a bit prone to being influenced by certain things that he watches and plays.

Film/game classifications and ratings are there for a reason. Stick to them.
If Mum or I say 'No' or 'Yes' then that's it, as some discretion is needed as the above can be pretty illogical.
Internet is accessible but through a filter (can't recall its name atm) that is so stringent it's ridiculous. We'd rather that than the other end of the scale.
All passwords/pin numbers to be known by Mum or me for any site/phone and we have access at any time without warning.
and...
NO you can't have a Facebook acc until you are 13!! :D

As parents, We have the final say.

This ties in with the fact that we are open and welcome any questions or discussions about anything.

It's very hard in this day and age to control what goes into your child. IMO it's important. Everything is so accessible and this is a good thing and a bad thing.
Since he's started secondary school we have noticed this become an even greater challenge with the advent of increased freedom of opportunity and knowledge shared with friends at school.

I think if you are honest with kids and treat them like intelligent human beings they grow up more balanced and broad minded...

...well that's what my two say when they let me out now and then for good behaviour! :lol:

It can be difficult sometimes though, a bit embarrassing too, we were called to the primary school my oldest son was at because he had at 9 worked out the filter system and turned it off, it was discovered soon after when his mates were watching, not porn but games considered inappropriate, I did not know whether to feel proud because he had hacked the filter system or embarrassed because he had allowed the primary school pupils access to naughty materiel :oops: he is now planning on computing intelligence in the Marines, should I be proud or ashamed if he passes.

Ten years ago that was me. Now I'm studying electronic engineering.

:) Identifying what our kids enjoy, where their talents are and then channeling them for the good is both our blessing and burden I guess!
