Violent Movies.............

I am SO frustrated with DH. I can't number the amount of times I have asked him NOT to watch violent movies with our son. DS is 9. DH likes to bond with him over James Bond movies and the like. I am not okay with that because our son has an obsession with guns to the point that even his friends who are boys find it TOO much!!

Last night at dinner DH and DS were playing which line is this movie from. My son says some line, to which, DH responds " 'The Negotiator'!! Great job!!" REALLY!?!??!?!?! The Negotiator, the R-Rated movie based on hostages, violence and guns???? REALLY????

I thought it was bad (and told him so) when I found out they watched 'The Matrix' together!!!!!!

What can I say to get through to him???????????????

I am going to set up family therapy, but I am DONE!!!!! I just wish there were a way to help him to understand the harm he is doing!!!!

Thanks for listening to my venting...................
