Actually I would say that DOING ONE'S BEST to protect them from what
you feel they should be protected from is a very LARGE part of
parenting.
What I think is a pity is that it's so damn hard. One can and should
give guidance,
sure, but once a kid is old enough to leave the house alone, amass a few
dollars, and
reach up to a record store counter, you can't be really sure what's in
their record
collection without periodic full room searches.

Even if one is against censorship (and hey, I'm an ACLUmember- I'm
against
censorship AND against room searches) one can wish that a smaller
percentage
of what one finds in the record store, on the net, and in the world was
objectionable.

And can I be absolutely sure whether or what my kids are smoking behind
the garage? Not really. By the way, Shouyu, you may not be a parent,
but you may be young enough to remember how little control parents
actually have -- or were you the model child that never tested limits
=:} ??
