I have a question for you, OP. My daughter's aunt and a one-time vacation babysitter have both apparently allowed her to play Angry Birds, which I know nothing about. I'm not sure if I should be annoyed about that. Would you be annoyed?

I feel like I'm losing control here. I wonder if it's part of letting go.
I think so. Gradually, I realize my children have lives separate from me and I cannot be there all the time.

Angry Birds would bother me, too.

I agree. I'm not the type to tell others it's not appropriate or make a huge deal if my kids did watch it...but I don't encourage it either. Next time your child goes there have him choose a movie to take with him.

Shrek 2 has a transvestite princess. I can't remember which one, but its definitely a dude in a dress. He/ she is a guest at Fiona's bridal shower.

That is the ugly stepsister its not a transvestite. She is in fact just a woman who looks like a man.

I think toy story has the same type of adult innuendos as shrek.

To the OP just let them know to keep it G in the future or email then a list.

Our kids have watched all of them, we are fine with it, and we do not make a big deal of what they watch at relatives' houses although there have been things we would rather they not have seen. We just feel it's better to not micromanage, if it were a huge problem we just wouldn't leave our kids there. That's just us.

Re: Do you think the movie Shrek is appropriate for a 4 year old?

I'm curious about the transvestite princess too! Where have I been??! I can only think of Mulan, but that doesn't seem transvestite to me.

But as I'm writing this we are watching the great mouse detective. It's rated g, but the part on now is a mouse singing a sexy song. She ends up wearing a showgirl style outfit with a garter belt. I'm no prude, but this is kind of shocking even to me. And it's rated G. Made in 1986.
I looked up the lyrics:
Dearest friends, dear gentlemen
Listen to my song
Life down here's been hard for you
Life has made you strong
Let me lift the mood
With my attitude

Hey fellas
The time is right
Get ready
Tonight's the night
Boys, what you're hopin' for will come true
Let me be good to you

You tough guys
You're feelin' all alone
You rough guys
The best o' you sailors and bums
All o' my chums

So dream on
And drink your beer
Get cosy
Your baby's here
You won't be misunderstood
Let me be good to you

Hey fellas
I'll take off all my blues
Hey fellas
There's nothin' I won't do
Just for you

So dream on
And drink your beer
Get cosy
Your baby's here
Hey boys, I'm talkin' to you
Your baby'y gonna come through
Let me be good to you

Yeah!

She was talking about the ugly stepsister in shreck 2. Ive always thought that part was inappropriate in a kids movie but the rating system has changed a ton since the 80's

I wouldn't. No way. BUT, some say I am really picky with my movie choices. I only let my 3.5 (4 in march) watch shows like curious george, dora, super why, MOST (but not all) PBS shows and things like that. I let him watch the Little Engine That Could on Netflix the other day and he was acting like a mean train and saying mean words all afternoon. So, I feel like I have to be really careful. THey absorb and learn so much from what they watch! Curious George is a pretty cute innocent show
