    Hi all,

    What do you generally do when an intimate scene like kissing or hugging or violence comes up in a movie when you are watching it along with your children? I generally am very cautious when I am watching TV with my 6year old daughter but there are times when even a very nice movie ends up having some scenes that are not very appropriate for kids.
    When she sees a girl in a bikini she exclaims shame! shame!
    When she sees a kissing scene, she trie to kiss me on the lips or asks why I and her dad won't kiss each other like the ones shown on TV. We try to divert her by hugging her and kissing her cheeks or forehead.
    She likes the Naatu Naatu song from RRR so when I kept the song on youtube to my utter dismay a condom advertisement popped up and I was unable to skip the ad. She kept asking me what it was and I felt embarrassed.
    She watched some parts of KGF-2 with her dad when I was busy with chores and was so fascinated that she ended up imitating Rocky. She was not perturbed by the violence but rather was amused by how he fights and considers him so stylish and heroic. After some time when I realized what was going on hell broke loose at home and it lead to an argument between me and H.

    My H changes the channel abruptly if it is an intimate scene but if it is an action movie he is so lost in his whole world that he won't even realize that a kid is watching it with him. I have to shout and remind him to change.

    In those situations, what do you do? Do you go with the flow or do you change the course abruptly?
