My son is 11. He has always had a lot of freedom in his movie viewing, long before I even heard of unschooling. We didn't mind swearing, or some violence, or innuendos, or even scantily dressed people, as long as they weren't engaging in sex. If we are watching a movie as a family, we fast forward the VERY sexy parts.
One of our favorite series was Firefly. It was only on for one season, but we have that on DVD. We love the story and the humor. We have watched it over and over.There are quite a few sex scenes, and they are more graphic than I want my 11 year old son to see. He is usually perfectly fine with us watching them as a family so we can fast forward the sex parts.
Last night after watching one as a family, and fast-forwarding some parts, my son declared that he loved this episode and was going to watch it later. We told him we weren't comfortable with that, because there were parts he isn't ready to see yet. He wasn't happy. I actually put the DVD's away, because I had a feeling he would find them and watch them when we were asleep.
I do understand that he is getting to the age where he wants to know more about sex. We talk fairly openly about it when it comes up, although I usually defer to my son's father if the question is too graphic and I know my answering it will embarrass my son. I also have provided him with age appropriate books about sex whenever I felt he needed one, starting at about 9 years old. I have one now that is for 13 -15 year olds, and I think it's time to give it to him.
I guess my question is...what would a Radical Unschooler do in this situation? (I am not yet a Radical Unschooler, but I am trying to become more of one).
