Essential elements to your offsprings cultural education?
The Undertones are essential for positive character building !
Teenage Kicks came on the car radio this morn, just as I was about to pull onto the drive… I carried on up the road and told the boy (5) to get his window wound down.
He didn’t need encouraging to strum his air guitar… good ladPosted 2 years agosurroundedbyhillsSubscriber

took my two 10 & 12 to see this recently, my 10yo daughter couldn’t stop laughing at it, not with it; and pointing out non too subtly of David Bowies’ costume that “you can see his willy” ! On reflection it was a rubbish film.
Road Runner. Meep! meep!Posted 2 years agojohndohMember
One of my six year olds adores music.
Today she said she wanted to go to Glastonbury with me tomorrow so she can see Pharell Williams and Hozier.
My work is done, not so much for the choice of music but the fact she enjoys music enough to want to go to a festival.
I told her she can watch it on the telly (which she will do all weekend if she could) and watch out for daddy 🙂Posted 2 years agooliverd1981Member
Reset the telly to only show tennis/football/olympics/news then watch their little faces as they switch on expecting cartoons.
The lyrics to the “Grandstand” music as I can recall are
“It’s time to go out
time to go out
time to go out
Grandstand is on”
Also if you want to ensure your kids are well rounded and educated, ensure none of their computer games load in less than 25 minutes and even then only load sucessfully 50% of the time.Posted 2 years agobinnersSubscriber
We did Little Shop of Horrors on Sautrday Night, which they Loved. Both Bill and Ted films, which haven’t aged as well, but they enjoyed anyway.
But Waynes World is still the benchmark, with Binneretee number one declaring that it is now her favourite film. She does a great Garth ‘Foxy Lady’ dance 😀Posted 2 years agoMrOvershootSubscriber

Oh that was a fashback! I got in trouble for letting my god daughter watch that & she carried on the “Foxy Lady” routine for years.Posted 2 years agobartimaeusMember
Some Miyazaki… I’d start with Nausicaa and then try Princess Mononoke though my boys also loved Laura – Castle in the Sky.
Princess Bride, Ferris Bueller – and you have to see Home Alone.
We also had great success with Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, as well as Zang Yimou’s Hero and House of Flying Daggers.
Books… Skullduggery Pleasant, the Knife of Never Letting Go series and The Amulet of Samarkand.Posted 2 years ago
