Should I Let My 13 Year Old See “Twilight:Breaking Dawn”? – Daily Dilemma [AUDIO]

As I stated on the air today when we started this dilemma, I have not seen any of the “Twilight Saga” movies or read any of the books so it was all on you the listener to help this parent out on this one. I guess it’s just one more thing for parents in this modern world to deal with, when in a child’s life is “too young” anymore?


One of the callers said kids today are more savvy than people realize and they already talk about things you wouldn’t believe they talk about. I totally believe that , but I’m not sure that because it is the way it is, is a good reason to accept it. With parenting it’s kind of like being a boss, sure you know your employees are going to call in from time to time and not have a good reason, but you also, don’t want to say it’s ok for them to do it. Kids will break rules from time to time but
I think it’s still important to have the rules there.
Here is what our listener e mailed to us: “My daughter is 13 and a huge ‘Twilight’ fan. I must admit I have never read any of the books or watched the movies. Lately, I have heard the most recent story, ‘Breaking Dawn,’ has a lot of adult themes and I’m just not comfortable letting her see yet. I know it’s going to create quite a stir in my house if she can’t see it, but all her friends are allowed. What should I do?”

Here is what the callers had to say about this one:
