It's your daughter...you must bring her up how you see fit.
But I find it utterly incomprehensible that on the one hand you are saying "no porn", yet on the other you seemingly sound fairly relaxed about things like violence.
My daughter is not an adult. She is not of proper age to consent to sex. She knows what it is and how it works, but is not emotionally grown up enough to know what to do with or completely understand it.
Violence has no age of consent. She must be allowed to understand the horrors of the world, and how to protect herself from it. She must also be able to identify it, and act accordingly when the situation presents itself. After all, kids are targets too.
Kids are not stupid. They know what goes on in the world. I would rather they be informed and prepared than sheltered and clueless. By not teaching our kids about the world, aren't we just setting them up for failure, or a false sense of reality and security at the very least?
