Some stuff, yes. Never books--if I was interested in reading it I was allowed to read it. I LOVED Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark! Movies were different. I was not allow to see R rated until I was in high school. I remember babysitting for my cousin when I was in middle school and my uncle told me I could watch whatever movie I wanted. So I selected a rated R movie--Cape Fear-and scared the living crap out of myself-lol. As far as TV-eh, we didn't have cable where we lived and we didn't get satellite until I was in high school anyway. I can see not allowing a young kid to watch some of the shows I watch-there is no reason for a small child to see Criminal Minds, for example. I love the show but there are some scenes that I find upsetting, and honestly, I don't know how I would turn torture into a teachable moment. My mom did try to sensor my music, as I was very into Marilyn Manson in high school. We settled on her telling me that of I wanted to listen to it, she was not going to buy it for me. I thought that was fair.
