Its an iPod seriously, there are worse things out there. How is that going to harm her if she is listening to music? How is that not having control? More than likely she will have a very strict background with growing up on a Marine base. Music is the least of my worries especially with all the things I see on the local news or Nancy Grace. I could understand if she was hitting someone or saying a bad word then yes by all means discipline her. I have young cousins who have phones and iPods and they are under 10 so apparently there are other parents out there like this and most kids these days are pretty technology savvy. ---According to the AVG survey, 69 percent of children aged 2-5 know how operate a computer mouse, and 58 percent can play a game on the computer.

I think the harm, so to speak, lies in the fact that you feel powerless to control what your 2 1/2 year old child listens to and watches.

Is all the negativity really needed? Are you a child psychologist? Are you parent of the year? Just saying.

What negativity are you referring to? I have four daughters ages 18, 15, 11, and 9. I do feel that qualifies me to have an opinion on parenting issues.

She doesn't have an iPod simply because you can't keep your eyes glued to her 24/7. someone had to buy and give her the ipod and load it with tunes.

I agree, an iPod in and of itself isn't a huge problem. But if you give her the ipod and load it with usher and katy perry, then you can't come here and pseudo-complain that she's listening to that music.

It's a debate board honey. "opinions that differ from my own" does not equal "negativity".

Just because kids learn things from their friends and extended family members doesn't mean that you have to allow them in your home.
