    My kids have no choice ATM they listen to eminem and all other songs that swear, promote drugs, alcohol etc. I plan to educate my children that it's just music, doesn't mean it's real or true. I listened to eminem and whatever else I wanted to growing up and I'm fine

    I listen to far worse in the car with the kids than a bit of tame Eminem. I don't like him anymore anyway his earlier stuff was good but now he's gone boring and main******...trying to make money I guess.

    If my 13 y/o was listening to that sort of music I would be relieved that they weren't emo and that they had good taste in music. I don't think I would allow my child to stay living with me if they were Coldplay or Angus and Julia Stone fans YUKKKK

    I dunno, probably.

    I like Eminem because his songs often tend to be about personal issues, rather than just singing about something random that has nothing to do with him. I also think a lot of his songs have some sort of message...

    I dislike the songs about using girls/women for sex (esp. the D12 songs... ew), etc, but I do like some of the others.

    I don't believe though, that just because you listen to something your life will turn out that way. I am not violent or anything - but I listened to plenty of Eminem when I was a teenager. I liked Stan the best I think...

    Anyway, yeah, I'd probably allow it. Obviously it's different to let a 15-year-old listen than a 6-year-old...

    Frankly, I would be fooling myself if I thought that I could control what my (hypothetical) 13yr old listens to. Cant shelter the kid forever. Im sure he'd download the song himself and play it on his ipod, whether I approve or not. My son is 7 and listens to Linkin Park and other 'questionable' artists...but he also listens to alot of 'wholesome, good' artists.

    And for what its worth....I loved Eminem growing up and used to listen to his album ALOT. I knew his songs were a bit on the rough side and even though I loved the songs, I am yet to stuff my girlfriend in the boot of my car and take her off to bury her in the woods as a result of listening to it.

    This just reminded me of when I was 13. My mum had banned eminem from the house so I had to give her my cassette HA yes a cassette! So I started taking my discman to school with me and me and my friend would swap CD's I had a korn CD he had the eminem CD we'd swap in the morning and swap back after school.

    My kids listen to him now. As my husband listens to him in the car often. I bring my kids up to have better values and that what he sings about is just that a song. Ps I'd love to go see his concert.
