Our kids need their parents. They have plenty of friends but only one set of parents. It's not my job to be their friend.

Well, if you think it is good, then go for it. You made it sound as if you would prefer that she did not listen to this kind of music. I was simply trying to point out that you do have control, if you choose to exercise it.

Several people here have gifted kids, so if that is what you want to talk about, go for it. There is absolutely no need to use flash cards for numbers with a 2yo, btw. None. If you want to work on number sense, there are better ways.

I'm really not sure why you felt the need to tell me all that, except to convey that 1) You COULD prevent her from doing it if you minded and 2) you don't mind.

Speaking of controlling outside influences (and Katy Perry), recently my 3-year-old DS was running past my DH while he was on the computer.

The whole being your child friend thingy baffles me. i would have never had children if i wanted to be friends.

Lol, my kids were probably in school before they figured out that the ice cream truck wasn't the "music truck."
