My kids are 5, 3 and 8 mo. My husband and I have very different opinons about what is appropriate for them to watch.
Today, he had Steven Colbert's Christmas Special on. I came into the room as an artist was singing a song with a lot of sexual innuendo. Sure my 3 yo dd probably doesn't understand it, but I asked my husband to please watch it after the kids were asleep. We have DVR so this doesn't seem unreasonable. It's an adult comedic show- not for Children. My husband got angry and said the language wasn't foul and didn't see a problem with the show at all.
There have been many other shows that I've regrettably given up the fight on: Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad etc. It's frustrateing because my husband expects me to respect his standards of discipline- but he pays no rgard to my desire to keep our kids TV viewing age appropriate and to a minimum.
Am I out of line? How might I approach this better?
