    My parents did that, too, and so do I. My mother had an argument with a librarian when I wanted to read "Lolita" at age 9. The librarian refused to let me check it out. My mother said, "We let the children read anything they want," and checked it out herself under the disapproving stare of the librarian. Of course, I didn't understand it. Read it years later and said, "Ack!"

    IMO that is the BEST way to raise kids--open lines of communication.

    Congrats to you and your wife on being great parents!
