If you think violence and sexual content are more damaging to children than reality tv. You are an idiot.

Sexual content - It's becoming a political or activist platform to promote "lifestyles" .

Well said!!! Thank you for bringing this up, it's awesome to see that I'm not the only one who feels this way. It's also very sad that yes, this has become the 'NORM' and that few people notice that our kids are watching programming, directed at them, about these issues.

AGAIN (PAMSPOSHPRETTIES) someone has been flagged for speaking the truth, but more over, her FIRST AMMENDMENT right is being taken away because someone chose to read what she had to say and didn't like it and is now FILTERING it for everyone. Who's right is it to filter something that was in NO WAY vulger or rude? WHERE DID THE FIRST AMMENDMENT~FREEDOM OF SPEECH right go??? Stop flagging comments that are not hurting anyone.

I think news might be more damaging if they understand the difference between what's real and what isn't. The new scares me some times.

There have actually been studies conducted that show the news is more detrimental for children than seeing animated or scripted violence or sexual activity on television.

Violence, sexual content, foul language, reality programming, and video games each delivered (encouraged) in a societal environment promoting an increasingly lessoning of meaningful morality, and to a great extent, little (if any) emphasis on meaningful accountability for actions.

Adult content in general, even news. Much content is just a waste of time. My kids are grown and I was pretty careful about what they watched. Now I wish I had limited even more.

Its varies based on the age group, so speaking specifically for my two small ones (3 and 4) I vote for "ALL OF THE ABOVE" to small for any of that. Right now I want to preserve there hopes and dreams and fairy tale imaginations!

I do not find any T.V. programs damaging to my kids because I control what they see !! I am sick of people blaming everything from T.V. to celebrities for their kids it is up to the parent's to take responsibility for their kids !!

I was between violence and sexual content. The two actually go hand in hand. Usually when there is sexual content there is violence. I chose sexual content because children learning about sex before time will/might make them want to experiment (along) with peer pressure before time. This in turn will/can cause early pregnancy and a lost of the child believing they are capable of making good decisions. I understand movies are about making money but will we be the conduit to destroy our children?

All of the above, I remember when they used to edit movies for TV miss those days. When I babysit, I make sure they're watching good educational yet fun things and even then I'd rather have them doing activities then spacing out in front of the television.

Where is the None / Nothing button? If Parents are good at parenting they will be able to talk to their kids and explain what it is they are seeing on tv. TV does not damage kids, bad parents do.

Think real hard... they know that most movie and TV series' are just make believe. Reality TV and sexual content programs can be blocked (or recorded for adult viewing), but THE NEWS IS REAL and almost all children know that!

Personally I think both sexual content and violence are very damaging to children. Parents need to be careful to not use TV as a substitute for personal family time or as a babysitter.

i get really tied of people trying to blame kid's problems on television. ultimately, messed up kids are the way they are either because they were born that way(i.e. mental health problems), and/or have awful parents. period.

I almost want to agree except for the mental health problems. Kids with mental health problems arnt messed up as long as they're taken care of properly.

I agree---or other bad experiences in reality (not viewed on a TV screen). I think it would take quite a bit to damage anyone with video footage, certainly more than is ever on TV.

I do think that reality TV is the most damaging because it has nothing to do with reality. The least damaging thing to do is to turn off the TV and do things with your children.

I think violence and sexual content in any medium tells children that is OK to do. More influential may be video games since there is a participation factor.
