    I don't watch music vids at home (we don't have foxtel either), so it's a no simply because of that.

    However music is a big part of our lives, I play drums and my family all play instruments or sing. Eventually DD is going to warm to one particular genre and (hopefully) find some form of self expression through music. And in that, I really don't want to be the mother that stifles her expression.

    My personal opinion is most of the music today is rubbish. I also think its my job as a parent to let her know that she doesn't have to gyrate, or get around in a state of undress to be beautiful/popular/talented. The plan is to not have to face this until she is much older (ie a teenager!!).

    Just to clarify - not digging at parents who do let their kids watch, just making a note that if DD decided to listen to/ watch these kind of clips, I would want her to know that she didn't have to emulate the women in them.

    Having a two year old bounce on your lap can be distracting and lead to inarticulate responses

I'm sorry, I'm not trying to say your a bad mum, I just feel that way about it. It makes me sad that little girls are prancing around to songs like that.

    I haven't read all the thread so I don't know if it's be mentioned, but I really detest the whole obsession with that little Sophie Grace girl singing Nicky Minaj songs. I think it's completely inappropriate.
    Really? So firstly I get told that I'm sarcastic by FOBS and making out that other parents are 'holier than thou'....

    THEN my dd gets pitied for having a mum that encourages such grotesque behaviour....

    Can't win really hey!

    FWIW, thanks OP for "not saying I'm a bad mum", even though the tone of your post made it blatantly obvious that I am one in your eyes I know I'm a great mum - my dd tells me all the time! And If that 'shocks' you, I really wonder whether you actually live on this planet?? What shocks me is the parents who beat and abuse their kids but whatevs!

    Gosh I'm glad I didn't mention the Lady Gaga "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick" incident then

    Oh for gods sake. Trust me, nothing shocks me. I've seen/heard it all. I do 'live on this planet'? What a bizarre thing to say? It's actually a little offensive.
    I'm sure you are a wonderful mum. Assuming one's tone on the internet can be very misleading. I'd just stick to reading their words. Because you'll notice that I've never said that you or anyone who let's their child watch music clips were a bad mother. It's an issue very close to my heart because of my past.
    Read back over some of my previous posts if you like. You will then see that I don't need a 'tone'. I actually say what I think!

    I wasn't talking about you FOBS, I was talking about justwanttobeamummys post above. I only mentioned that you commented about my sarcasm. The rest was directed towards JW2BAMs post... Just wanted to clarify that I wasnt talking about you re: the planet thing!

    I don't think your a bad parent, that's why I clarified. A bad parent to me is someone who intentionally hurts or disadvantages their child, obviously you don't have a problem with it, so I don't think you are.

    And yep, letting your little girl sing about rising on a disco stick makes me feel sad.

    No, never.

    But DD1 started watching music video clips at 17yo. I felt that was beyond my reach to disallow.
