Just bought Cheryl Coles new album for my 2 daughters (9 & 7 yrs old).
Given that there was no Parent Advisory I was surprised to find that one of the tracks has the word **** as a lyric.
I'm no prude & not against swearing in music persay (I smile every time I listen to Lily Allans song about G W Bush............... youll know it if youve heard it).
I also served in the Army & worked in the Prison service for a combined 17 years so aint had a particularly sheltered life.
I do however prefer to have some control about swearing in the music my kids listen to.
My thoughts are:
1/ Cheryl Cole appears to be targeting the "Family" market so why (oh why) include swearing.
2/ If they felt that it added so much to the track why is there no indication of this to warn parents.
It was Tesco entertainment I bought the album from & I've dropped them an email to let them know they may have a few red faced grannies getting in touch with them.
Am I expecting too much or is swearing in front of children to be accepted and tolerated nowadays.
