I love this and am 13. My 10 year old brother loves it and my 7 year old cousin! The worst words said are "ass" "crap" "bloody" that is literally it. There is slight violence but think about it, every fairy tail ever invented is pretty brutal. But it shows sword fights with princes and ogres and stuff. But u don't see anything that gory or violent. Anybody ...

Riding Do start with lessons at a local riding school with appropriately sized ponies. A kid can start riding as early as 2 years of age (when they can sit upright), but many places that offers lessons have requirements that are usually between 4 and 8 years of age for lessons.

Seeing parents or other adults naked is entirely unconnected to abuse. See any reports on familial abuse (by far the most common type), and more anecdotally, see the lack of systemic abuse in naturist and nudist environments. I'd support Stephie's comment that naturists tend to be very proper about what is and isn't acceptable behaviour. Your culture may ...

It appears that children don't learn language well from television because they need interaction and conversation. It's not so much that the "picture on a flat device [isn't] a person", but more that the child doesn't get a response when they try to talk back to the picture. In one study, when children had a conversation over Skype with an adult, they were ...
