So apparently I'm "hounding" ex DP

for pointing out that it was inappropriate of him to allow 7 year old DD to watch a stand up routine that contained the words 'fuck' and 'shit'.

Apparently it's ok because it's "only Dave Gorman".

I love Dave Gorman and of all the stand ups he is one of the few I will watch with my children, I ahve taken them both to see him live but they are high school age and older - a 7 year old won't get the humour so it isn't worth the exposure to the bad language in my opinion.

Pointing that out isn't hounding him unless you are repeatedly reminding him of the fact he did it.

No not repeatedly reminding. They watched it this weekend and DD just told me this evening. I wasn't overly bolshy, just asked why she watched it.

We've only been separated a few months and I really thought we were on the same page with all the important stuff. He did grow up a bit of a latchkey kid though with zero restrictions on what he watched and has a bit of a 'didn't do me any harm' attitude about it.

Personally I'd rather shield DD from this kind of language for the previous few years we still have the power to do so.

I would not worry about Dave Gorman - pick your battles

i would catch it now if you used to parent around the same way and he is suddenly doing things differently that is i disguise it as flattery in one sense as in you said you would never be a shit parent like yours was what's changed? why suddenly do you want to act like them for?

my ex let our six year old play cod i was less than impressed and told him as far as im aware he has not done it since

That sounds to me like a very teenage response to being caught out on doing something they know is wrong!

He needs to grow the fuck up and parent in the same way as he did when you were together!

I like Dave Gorman a lot, and think he's funny.

I wouldn't let my DD see it, and she's 14. She wouldn't get it and she'd be bored. It's inappropriate and (I think) wrong.

So I agree YNBU
