At what age...

...would you let your child watch Game of Thrones? It is all the rage at DS's school but I don't think any of them are really old enough to watch it. What are your thoughts?

Re: At what age...

When in doubt, I always look in common sense media to see what they suggest (for Game of Thrones they suggest 18+). I'm amazed at what some parents let their kids watch. Last year when DS was in 6th grade, some girls were watching "13 reasons why". I was pretty shocked, and I feel I'm kind of open minded.

I definitely think not before 16. I would love to say later but by then it's probably hard to monitor what they watch anyway, especially when they're not at home. Uggh, I don't want my kids to grow up. At all.

I am over 40 and I can't follow it... I can't imagine kids following the storyline...

I remember in episode 1 or 2, a pretty vivid sex scene, so NOT elementary age, that's for sure!

Thank you for the responses. I've never watched the show but that's what I thought. DH sees nothing wrong with my 12 yr old soon to be 13 year old DS watching it. Has been a major discussion at our house lately.

It goes beyond nudity. There are lots of very graphic sex scenes as well as pretty graphic violence.

My DH watches it and from what I've seen, I seriously would not let my kids watch this until they are in college! It is incredibly graphic and has heavy sexual, violent images/themes.

My DS would watch that at 12 over my dead body.

Update - I have convinced DH that it is not appropriate for DS to watch. Of course, DS is not happy since he says his friends are watching it but he will have to get over it. Thanks for all the input.

Exactly. At least there was no nudity , graphic sex and bloody death scenes in 90210!

I remember my mom used to watch Dallas and Dynasty and I always wanted to watch it with her- at the time, THAT was considered risque!

At what age...

Honestly the last season had nearly NO sex in it at all. Like once I think.

We censor a lot and she'd never seen the prior seasons. She caught the tail end of one of the episodes and LOVED it. So I'd pre-watch all and judge. Found the last season wasn't bad. So she watched 'most' of it. I censored out one part (can't recall what now).

I thought I'd never let her watch it ever. She's 9

But then realized, it had some tough love and real morals to share. Better than video games or other BS and like I said, I censored it first. I judged it based on her ability to handle it and what was in it. She would ask when I'd forward through things "Was that just inappropriate for me" and yes it was.

She's also seen Deadpool and loves it but it's also been censored to cut out what we refer to ask the holiday scenes. hahaha

I guess let every parent choose. I will *NOT* however let her watch the first 2 seasons. read the book.

ETA: you have to understand how much we love Dragons in my house!

I made my middle schooler watch this. We watched it together after a suicide happened locally. It was very powerful. I have no regrets.

If you have no problem with your child watching graphic nudity and sex scenes (some with same sex couples), orgies, extreme violence (not abstract like in a superhero movie, but vivid personal violence), rape scenes, extreme examples of human cruelty to each other and animals, etc etc.. then sure!

I can't even fathom letting a 12 year old watch that show, let alone a 12 year old even being able to grasp the extremely complicated story line and follow who all the characters are.

This would be one where i'd put my foot down. nope.

oh, but there's Dragons. Ok, cool, let them watch a dragon scene from the last season, but no need to see the entire series.

eta: and its one of my favorite shows!!
