Eminem fans, would you recommend Eminem music to your kid?
Its fine with my dad, he would say listen to the words that eminem is using. If you find a word that interesting. Write it down, look for the meaning in the dictionary. He said eminem is a genius, and i should focus only on the words that can be found in the dictionary. In my mind this sounds like a word hunt! Lets bring it on.

I love Eminem! Damn the guy is just too real and his words play is the work of a f**cking genius. I love Eminem man, I learned how to control my anger and use it to build positive things about myself after I started listening to Eminem.

I used to have self expression problems as a kid. I was shy, easily bullied and had low self esteem at some point when I meet people I think don't like me. But you know, just a few tracks from Eminen including 24 to life, Beautiful, Guts over fear.

First thing you should know is that it isn't right in my opinion to try to over protect your kids. So I'll like my kids to play around fire while I am close so I can teach them how not to get burned. Else they will still play around fire when you are not around and you may not be there to show them how not to get burned.

One problem with Eminem music is that he always comes out with an angry tone, which truly is who he is but if you listen to his track, 'Sing For The Moment' - https://youtu.be/9xwSgFsKeoE

In the second and third verse of that song, he talks about kids who listened to his songs religiously, idolizing all he sings about not knowing that they are just music not real. So you have to teach your kids not to idolize any music or pick up the angry tone from Eminem - (it's his way of getting attention to his music).

Guide your kids from the sadist, melancholic and sometimes misogynic expressions in some of Eminem's track (most tracks about his mum and wife Kim), in this way you are teaching your kid to play with fire without getting burned.

One last thing is that Eminem curses a lot in his songs, so when your child is not old enough to listen to such words, watch out for the tracks he listens to. YouTube do provide some censored tracks where cursing words have been removed from those tracks.

I was about 15 when he released the Slim Shady LP album, I think the music itself had no real effect on me other than I've started wearing "rap wear". Music is art, there are no boundaries in what can the artist do with his or her work. 

Eminem is not a bad influence compared to these days toxic rappers, so YES, I would let my kid listen to Em if that's what they want.

I like some of Eminem's songs. Amidst the controversial lyrics, there are stories to tell. At times, he has some hilarious songs.

If I am going to recommend Eminem's songs, I would still be cautious. First of all, the CD label has a mark of Parental Advisory: Explicit Content. Thus, I have the power to supervise my child with such songs. Second, there are a lot of racist and violent remarks on his songs.

If I am going to recommend some songs of Eminem, I would be selective which songs are those.

Why not? I love Eminem, his word playing, his voice everything. He is more meaningful to me than other musicians. 

I have a kid. I am sure I am gonna introduce him with Emi when it's time. There are tons of 'shit' music full of shit words out there. It's better to hear Eminem than that. 

Love for the rap God!

I'd recommend it if I knew my kid was mature enough to understand the words and prudent enough to apply them. I like Eminem's music, it has a soul in it. But I can't honestly say it's something I would recommend to kids not knowing what the lyrics meant and how it's more than what is being heard.

As a day one Eminem fan who got his first CD at age 13 (I remember the store clerk looking at my dad like 'you sure about this?'), I would of course say yes. I haven't planned to recommend his music to my kids, but if they were to ask me for recommendations? Yes, definitely. Lyrically, he is on another level and why wouldn't you share his artistry with your kid?
