I volunteer my services every year for my son’s elementary school dance. And I usually try to come up with kid-friendly songs for a playlist. I’ve been listening very closely to lyrics for the last couple weeks determining if any of the songs on my playlist are potentially offensive. It got me wondering about how we censor bad words from children. Do you concern yourself with censoring lyrical content for your kids in your music or do you just let your flag fly?
Do you concern yourself with censoring lyrical content for your kids in your music or do you just let your flag fly?
Is it just swear words you worry about?
Do you worry about the subtely suggestive songs that are so prominent on radio?
Do you fret about then hearing drug or alcohol refences?
I know I’m pretty conscious about the lyrical content of songs I listen to while with kids, once a while an f-bomb will slip through when I’m not paying attention and my son will typically acknowledge it and suggest we change songs.
How do you kids react when they hear bad words in your music?
