I'm not trying to stir anything up or get this post locked. I am truly curious, why if your were trying to relax and read AR15.com would you want your kid on your lap? I don't have any kids, but if I did I wouldn't want one on my lap as I try to surf the net. And one more point that someone already mentioned. IF you DID have your kid on your lap, why would you click on Babe Of The Day? I don't know about you guys, but I don't usually look at porn when my girl friend is in the room. Maybe I'm just weird.

Well, since you don't have kids then you wouldn't understand. I've got a 3yr old little girl who loves looking through the gun rags with me, and she also likes to sit with me when I browse the site. However, I know not to click on "Babe of the day" or "Nudie pictures inside!" links because she doesn't need to be exposed to that. And my 7 month old boy and I like to spend time together as well. What's better than starting off their education in firearms young? It's certainly something they won't learn in school. I think the Babe of the Day threads are more about kids you can read and ask "What is porn?" or "What is a babe?" God Bless Texas

I don't look at porn with my wife or kids in the room. But each of my kids learned how to use the internet by sitting on my lap and watching me. I also believe their ability to read is due to the fact they had to learn to read to be on the internet like 'Daddy'. My 10 yr old can navigate Disney.com, TY.com, and AR-15.com like a pro. Yes, their were nights 'I' didn't feel like showing them jack and wanted them out of my way. But that is part of parenting and if you don't feel you can give that extra time don't have kids.

Sounds like my 3 year old as well, If i am on the computer he'll sit there on my lap and watch... point to the top left and say " that your gun?" or point to a pic and say "i like that gun" Advance warnings are definately important.... As well as we spend time reloading, I'll do everything but weigh powder around him... If I am resizing brass I'll let him pull the handle down on the press... he'll say "I helping you" but I remember doing that with my father as far back as I remember.

I'll second that, being a single parent doesn't give me alot of alone time, which I have no problem with, because its well worth it, besides its not his fault he has a defective mother...

If you love your children, you will want them around no matter what you are doing. Everything you expose them to will effect them in some way for the rest of their lives.

You simply cannot comprehend or even fathom what it is like to have a child or the love and desire to guide them until you have one of your own. I know it's an old cliche, but it's true. I don't generally surf the 'net with my little girl on my lap. But we don't hide our computer in a backroom and there are those times when she just wants to come over to see what daddy is doing and snuggle in my lap. I personally wouldn't look at a "Babe of the Day" thread if I was the only one home. But if I did have the desire to, I would certainly use some discretion. There have been past instances where that sort of crap has been injected into otherwise totally innocous and unrelated threads. That sort of behavior I find unaccetable and intolerable. I don't care what happens in properly titled threads, but leave it there.
