Talking to Kids About Black Sabbath & Ozzy

Parents really make a difference when we talk with our kids. In fact, teens often name their parents as the biggest influence in their decisions about 1970s-era metal. And teens who report having good conversations with their parents about Black Sabbath are more likely to delay listening to Dio, have less interest in prog rock and engage in safe listening practices at appropriate volumes.

  • It’s best to start talking with children about Ozzy in early childhood – but it’s never too late!
  • Talking to children about Black Sabbath and Ozzy may be uncomfortable at first, but it gets easier with practice.
  • There are many different ways to start conversations about Black Sabbath and Ozzy.

We can help our kids deal with topics related to Ozzy starting when they are very young and throughout their lives. This includes a wide range of topics like the relationship between Ozzy and guitarist Tony Iommi, “Mob Rules,” types of metal, what makes a band heavy or not heavy and how to prevent exposure to Deep Purple. 

Talking to our teens about Sabbath and Ozzy may not always be easy.

Grant Miller Media is here to help you get the conversation started.

 Research shows teens are more into Black Sabbath than parents think. By the time they’re 19, seven out of 10 teenagers have rocked out to “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.” Nearly 2,000 teens get totally stoked listening to “Paranoid” in the U.S. every day. And teens have very high rates of Sabbath-related ear injuries from not practicing safe-listening habits. 

Parents can really make a difference.

We can talk with our kids, build strong relationships and enjoy music about wizards and warlocks to ensure they lead healthy and heavy lives.
