Eminem & My Boy

One day, couple years ago, I was in my mom's house and I heard my first boy's singing Eminem's song. Suprising me.. coz he's still so young, at that time he just enrolled a secondary school.

So I asked him.. where did you heard that song from.. He told me he heard over his friend.. then I said to him, the words in the lyrics was not good & not propritate for your age.

He look at me and with the quity face he said: "I know mommy.. but the song & music is good.." few seconds silent.. then I replied: "I know.. that's why I have the CD at home.." ha..ha..ha..

Son: "What.. you have the CD.. why don't you tell me.."
Me: "No.. of course I don't wanna tell you, like I said the lyric is not propriate for you.."
Son: "Can I have it mommy.. please.. please.."
hehehe.. that cute face..
Me: "Ok.. you can have it.. but only for singging.. you cannot use that language for daily talk.."
Son: "Ok.. mommy.. I won't.."

After that.. for couple weeks.. what I heard was Eminem.. home.. in the car.. my mom's house.. everywhere Eminem.. He asked people to hear the album, including his brother & also my mom.. hahaha..

One day, I was driving and he sat beside me.. of course.. listening to Eminem hehehe.. then.. this song 'Ass Like That' come up..

While he's sing along with it.. I asked him.. "Do you know what pee pee mean in that song?" Maybe he didn't expect me asking that kind of question.. so he just shake his head. Then I told him what does it mean.. he look at me & said "I know mommy" :D

Question continued.. "and do you know why it's noeng noeng..?" then I started to explain "When you get older and star to like a girl.. you might feel something.. and your pee pee could be noeng noeng.. It's a normal thing.." and the advice began "but you have to control it.. don't do stupid thing that might ruin your future." bla bla bla

This is the way I talk to my boys.. explain things & give them advice. We cannot obturate our kids from the world.. and we might not able to protect them all the time.. What we can do is giving them a good point of view, guide them with knowledge & religion, and an open communication; so they will know how to behave & act toward the world.
