to have expected comic relief to be watchable for my 5 year old before 8pm

I know comic relief gets a bit rude as the night goes on but I made the mistake of thinking that as dd has been raising money at school it would be good to let her stay up and watch until 7.45pm.

Yes I knew there would be jokes she wouldn't get but I didn't expect her to be taught the word shagging.

I remember watching it with my parents and wanted to do the same.

So, am I being a fuddy duddy?

YABFD (fuddy duddy).

I have been surprised b some of the content, but not unduly outraged.

Have been asked the meaning of vajazzle and shag by 5 and 7 year ld.

When Rowan Atkinson said 'arsing around' in his sketch I wanted to cringe, especially as my niece asked what it meant.

YANBU. The Rowan Atkinson sketch was not suitable for 5 year olds - mine was packed off to bed not long after it.

I retract my statement. The vajazzle part was a bit off.

YABU to think comic relief is watchable by anyone of any age.

Not really outraged by it, but mine are a little older

My 11 year old already knows about shagging, and my 7 year old thinks it means kissing

DD2 was questioning me more about Zayn from 1D being upset in their film than any of the language/shagging/etc

Neither are really watching it, it's being used as an excuse not to go to bed.

Yanbu I totally agree. I too promised my boys aged 5 and 7 they could watch it but switched it off earlier and told them.that it wasn't suitable. Not what I was expecting so early in the evening.

chocoholic05 Fri 15-Mar-13 20:51:46

Meant earlier than I'd promised them!

I'm happy to explain the films about suffering in Africa etc as I don't think she's to young to see what she's raising money for, but I don't swear in front of my dc and thought it would be safe before 8pm (I expected innuendo but she wouldn't get that)

FiveGoMadInDorset Fri 15-Mar-13 20:55:33

I am actually quite glad that DC;s school did nothing for Comic Relief and seems to have passed them by.

YANBU Shagging and vajazzle all well before 8pm shock. Totally unacceptable. They even acknowledged that young children would still be watching and said hello to them!

RoseandVioletCreams Fri 15-Mar-13 20:57:16

yes I agree not suitable content for a 5 year old, yesterday something was on and they showed a bed covered in blood.

Even the eastenders sketch is not something i want my 5 year old exposed too.

RoseandVioletCreams Fri 15-Mar-13 20:57:55

Vajazzle totally disgusting, even the ladies looking up the blanket like that really, my poor dd was in shock.

PoppyWearer Fri 15-Mar-13 20:58:47

Most of it went over my 4yo's head.

Although she watched the bits about the African children very intently and asked me questions.

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Fri 15-Mar-13 20:58:57

YANBU. I'm so glad my kids were out of the room before talk of shagging and vajazzling started.

Startail Fri 15-Mar-13 21:00:14

My two are older and it hadn't struck me how early the Mid wife sectch was, YANBU.

DDs think bits if it are funny, I'm finding it very drawn out. Have come to MN as I can't stand Peter Kay

RoseandVioletCreams Fri 15-Mar-13 21:02:04

can some one tell me the context of the shagging and who said it - am on bbc complaints form.

Patchouli Fri 15-Mar-13 21:03:59

I bet a fair amount of the money was raised by children, seems a bit unfair that the earlier part of the evening can't be aimed more for them.

AMumGoingMad Fri 15-Mar-13 21:04:42

7:45 Rowan Atkinson (as the archbishop of canterbury) saying that love thy neighbour doesn't mean you should be shagging them.

gordyslovesheep Fri 15-Mar-13 21:05:20

lol @ complaining about something you didn't actually see - that is the epitome of pearl clutching outragedness grin

v jazzle and shagging - they hear worse at school !

RinkyDinkyDoo Fri 15-Mar-13 21:06:21

YANBU- the Rowan Atkinson and midwives sketch should have been put on later. Thought Zayn's tears(lack of, even though he kept trying to rub) was rubbish and so fake.
