I think it would last long enough.

That's an interesting question, and one that Steph and I have discussed a bunch. Obviously, I'm inclined to be much more forgiving of wrestling than she is for pretty obvious reasons. That said, even if I wasn't, I tend to feel that it depends on the kid. When you say "young daughter" how young? Well really, how mature. I am very much of the opinion that wrestling is no more damaging than any other violent TV show on the air. So long as the kid understood basic principals of what is and isn't appropriate for one to do in common society, I think the kid can watch TV according to tastes. If you can grasp the concept of it isn't appropriate to go around raping and shooting people (Law & Order) nor is appropriate to go around blowing up animals and running off of cliffs (Roadrunner & Coyote) then I think you can handle "don't bodyslam people."

Steph tends to be a little more conservative on her view than me. When the time comes, maybe I'll challenge her to a cage match, and the winner will get their way.

I agree it depends on the kids and the content. When I went to ECW last Saturday, there were some really little kids sitting near me. They seemed to love the show [Hell they went Big Time Bug Fuck Crazy when Sabu came out--which was great] but when Kelly came out to do her strip routine, their dad grabbed all 4 kids and hauled them out of there [probably to the bathroom or concession stand].

Im never going to be a parent, but if I was taking my neices and nephews, I wouldnt want them to see any of the sex stuff, and maybe not the extreme weapons spots, but other stuff would be ok. Id try and steer them more towards TNA or lucha instead of the WWE product...

Would you let the kid read comic books??

I'm all for parents making individual choices on a case by case basis in regards to wrestling. Based both on the product and their own ideals and values for the children.

As for comics, yes. In fact, I intend to encourage it.
