Well one sharp -- mom sparking a new conversation over what is and is not appropriate to show.
On morning television.
And all started when an ad for a prime time show popped up during ABC's Good Morning America.
And her young son watched it and it features a naked man and woman in the middle of a sex scene.
The mom not only blog about it but she's complained to Federal Communications Commission.
She says she's not advocating censorship it feels these highly adult concepts go too far when kids are enjoying your Cheerios.
List earned his parenting blogger -- -- the moms dot com doctor Paul -- wire is child psychologist and family therapist in -- -- is -- expert.
And runs the daily affair dot com welcome to all of you.
Okay here's the problem less this wasn't prime time she wasn't watching it 10 PM and -- naked people.
She was watching Good Morning America at 8 AM her son is sitting right next to her.
And scenes to own naked people engage in a sex act what do you think it's this what I think I think person -- I think it's a little too racy for 8910 o'clock in the morning television.
It should be shown -- night after after our got after us but after 8 PM.
If this is it's not appropriate.
To be on TV that early in the morning you don't need to see this kinda sexy.
Whether her child as they are not personally myself I was watching that 8:9 o'clock in the morning I don't need to see that.
I just think there's there needs to be a time and a place for everything and especially because her child is there watching that's.
It just didn't happen it just shouldn't be an -- See I know you're disagreeing what Arrington do you think it's okay -- in the morning -- magazine financed 8 in the morning it's -- it -- at night.
They were not showing any genitals they were not showing a woman being manhandled.
And quite honestly this is child's play compared to what is just a click away for your children on the Internet.
My I think all of us really need to work a little harder if we want to protect our children from violent images on TV.
The networks have no problem showing that.
Yes -- -- is that also Virginia to choose between sex or violence we have -- and -- what parent what parent hasn't had their kids walking in on them.
Seeing exactly what they say on TV -- I'm not right.
And I think kids are not scarred for life right I don't know let's not talk like this -- -- -- I mean is inappropriate if you -- -- have that conversation with your six year old -- her seven year old -- year old son.
On television AM forces that conversation.
I totally agree I think it's highly inappropriate to have this kind of advertisement on morning television.
Where your children are exposed to it developmentally children young children in particular between the ages of two and six.
We're negotiating their bodies and trying to figure out what their bodies are doing and it's very important for them to have feelings.
Feel good about the bodies and not have feelings of guilt and.
Dream and these kinds of images -- is so -- shell game when parents jump and turn off the TV because god forbid their kids see somebody naked.
What message are they sending their kids they're telling their kids this is not okay nudity is not part of life he knowing you're up they have shown.
Advertisements commercials with women's breasts with -- with everything for decades it's not a big deal it and get it up there.
Parents do -- and I think it's appropriate is that -- have you erased in a healthy way and not react out of their own.
Well here and stigma and shame of his -- and -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Then hit it six children would be asking before that when they seniority and a man woman they wouldn't that image wouldn't even -- -- -- as a mommy blogger who got so fired up about this and alerted the FCC said.
This isn't something might might.
Sun can unseat right but and I don't think it was a bad image I think it was a very -- national image is -- fair and then why not.
Have a little conversation you know mommy and daddy do that sometimes -- his private this is not.
-- it's part of life hadn't tequila and I.
I think -- -- a natural part of life and there's a time the place for everything and I -- two boys and nine the six year old and I'm not gonna lie of course I talked to them about everything especially the nine era.
-- a lot of questions.
But we but I try and I do things appropriately by reading and bucks going -- certain stories looking at certain things on the Internet not allowing him to look at certain things -- -- -- We blocked due to be blocked certain things because -- -- that are not appropriate or not mural at child how that's the answer is what is the.
The age what is the age where it's appropriate to see on television.
Nudity -- tailored to advertise this new ABC steamy sex show.
Well I think when a child is approaching and in adolescence when they're aware of about it and hormones are reacting and they're having really strong sexual urges so they can relate to it.
The yemen's that we solo on the camera was of -- -- -- Playing very aggressively on top -- woman is not a grand so at that particular I don't -- and I hit an Air -- I -- so I mean -- me -- -- -- pharmacy -- overcome the patient.
Treating a patient -- what does -- who looks very aggressive it looks like this man is on something very aggressive and actually painful -- If it looked aggressive and painful I agree.
And sometimes kids walked in on that with their parents -- this is an actual -- projecting your NCAA I -- not -- I saw the clip two I did not think it was snowing aggressive the sex at all what the -- -- What -- know what -- -- say it was at this it this is morning television I guess that is on your usual I mean we.
We have really pushed beyond our classic in unity has changed it's like I was drugs are drugs out -- so what are out -- of the song lyrics.
I mean you know we just played blurred line errors very graphic song lyrics that I hear my eight year old singing -- any -- -- well you're nice shot -- yeah.
Is that okay is that less alarming to their little sort of central nervous systems it appears that.
And I -- I constantly struggle with this because of some parts in about blurred lines and -- another hour I'll is another very popular ones seeking the right now.
And the truth matters -- -- sexual as all the rap -- that my nine euros insulate that they're raping and that that the up sex in the -- there's a lot of everywhere yet it's everywhere but however and nine years old mice and thank god he doesn't know what he's saying he doesn't know what he's singing he that he knows that.
You know mommy thinks it's.
A -- section and it is.
My brain perspective and yet look at the child's -- the child's brain is reaction from the back of the brain which is on instinctual.
They're developing their pre frontal cortex which is a logical apartment trying to make -- the world when you see a graphic image like that it's all back part of the.
Re not already -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- you know we know the rest is that we know genitals shown better fat then showing violent images which can really.
Really sure Dan Hensley had absolutely my New -- we don't -- there for us and don't live there is doctor Paul -- Myron thanks for the spirited conversation things and yeah.
