It's not a ban if a child decides not to watch something.

It's a *good* thing to help kids recognize what effect the world has on them
and gain power over something that's affecting them.

Banning something, eg, taking control away from the child for the child's
own good, does the opposite. It tells the child he isn't as powerful as the
thing so someone must keep it away from him to protect him.
