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.

Swearing is now part and parcel of everyday life - be it right or wrong

It's hardly the worst sweary word out there - your kids have probably heard worse

funnily enough my review of that album consisted solely of that word

[COLOR="Red"]She probably isn't swearing, it's probably just her northern accent.

When I started seeing my GF (who is Northern) sometimes I thought she said something different to what she actually said. I've got used to her accent now, and I like it. :)[/COLOR]

parental advisory is voluntary-there is no legal requirement. have you seen her videos? the outfits she wears? you think she is targeting a "family market"?

Its in "Make me Cry".

As I said I'm no prude - 10 years in the forces and 7 years working in the prison service saw to that.

Looks like my view is in in the minority ...................... here anyway.

I agree but I just dont want to be supplying them with it on a CD as well.

I dont swear in front of them at home & wouldnt allow anyone else to.

You're right, there should have been a warning on the album.

Have you read ANY of this thread?

So by your logic its ok for 'teeny-boppers' to strut around half naked?

No, not by my logic. :roll:

I agree with the OP.

I don't give a damn about swearing in movies and music, but i think it should be warned where it is. I do swear now and again, but never in front of children. When your walking down the street and you hear parents saying get the f over there or stop f'ing messing about, it's just not right.

Absolutely agree.

Perhaps its some of the other contributers to this thread youve been overhearing.

Its interesting how aggressive some of their replies have been. (or perhaps its my over sensitive feelings again).

is swearing in front of children to be accepted and tolerated nowadays?

-- pretty much, I'm afraid.

If they go to school, they'll have already heard it.

My kids have also seen a fight at school - doesnt make it right though.

I never said it was right, but it is widely tolerated and accepted.

Thing is they have to learn these things exist.... but they're better than that. :thumbsup:

If you resort to swearing to "communicate" displeasure... you already lost the argument.

Kids can understand that real fast. They have to communicate with all kinds of different people at school all day long, they're diplomats :)

You can't control what they hear at school but you can at home. Parents have every right to expect a warning on an album or whatever it may be.

Really? Guess your kids never watch TV then!

They see way worse on the news or the discovery channel, never mind after the watershed, than one cuss word on some album.

Thats my point exactly.

They cant grow up in a bubble unexposed to swearing but I would like them to think that they are better than that.

What message do I send by providing them with swearing on a CD?

They should be old enough to understand the CD is mass marketed for an audience....

made to make money... and if the powers that be reckon it'll appeal to a greater audience if there's certain words included or not included, then it'll happen.

Money makes the world go round... :)

I'm sure your girls are old enough to understand that.

If you seriously believe that particular word makes the whole album unsuitable, reurn it to whence it came :thumbsup:

I'm not disputing any of that & as I said before I'm not actually against swearing in music - My point is that I would like to be made aware before I buy the product.

Its actually only one word on the whole album so easy enough for me to reburn the CD with that song left out.

I'm not sure about your previous point about TV as the watershed does a reasonable job (and 2 lions humping on the discovery channel is indeed just life).

I agree, I certainly don't think it is appropriate for under 10's to be listening to music with swearing in it, imaterial to what they are exposed to out with the family home,I also think thats a sad excuse for deeming it okay. Parents should be warned so that they can make an informed choice as to what they want to expose their kids to. By omitting this informationthe op was not given the right to choose and that is wrong!

I've never seen Trevor McDonald swearing on the News At 10. As for the water shed, that is there for a reason.Kids should be in bed by 9pm.

Yes they hear it in schools, but where do they learn it from? That's right, home. Stop them swearing at home, and it won't reach school so that other kids can copy.

It's all to easy to say "oh there's a problem, but it's too big to fix." That's not the right way to do it.What happened to kids respecting their elders, swearing at them certainly isn't respecting them.

Cussing is just life too hun....

all part of the varicoloured beauty of the human animal xx

I remember my shock when I first heard my blonde haired blue eyed lil angel sing along to Lily Allen.

But heck.. as I said... they're learning what life is and they're doing it in a safe protected environment amongst people who love and cherish them.

We protect kids not by hiding them from real life, but by forearming them with the knowledge they need to survive in the world in which they live xx
