you should have made it into an anti-media, anti-hollywood, anti-celebrity rant, not anti-corporate

Jeez Marybeth, what took you so long? I am teaching my seven and four year old sons the evils of advertising now so they don’t fall into the trap.

Well said, very well said. My daughter is now 16. I had to have similar talks with her at age 9 or 10. I feel for these kids. Between vulgar rap lyrics, MTV and the ever earlier sexualization of our children via the Britneys, Lindseys and now Mileys, having an innocent childhood becomes a greater and greater challenge.

I do recall a ouple years ago seeing the ‘fashions’ that were supposed to be the latst schoolwear. Trampy, cheap duds. I also remember most parents boycotting these and putting pressure on the schools to enforce dress codes. This is a fight we can’t afford to lose.

blame the media and corporations all you want, crappy parenting is the problem. Saying “NO” to children won’t damage them.

Homeschool and chuck the tv out. Get them involved in your churches youth group. Provide good information for them to read, like lives of the saints, and founding fathers, as well as info about their heritage. Do this from a very young age and it becomes the norm.

It will take an entire generation of a boatload of conservatives to right the ship, don’t squander the opportunity. If my kids were little today, this is the path I would choose.

I did ok with mine, youngest is homeschooled (15), oldest is a conservative practicing catholic, and middle is going to seminary next fall, but I don’t know if I would have had the same result in todays school system with the influences in society that are out there now. Dont take chances folks, homeschool those kids, and make sure they get the information needed to make good decisions. The schools and society are battling for the hearts and minds of your kids, it is up to YOU to keep them.......

I saw a girl in the super market the other night in total hooker wear. I know, it’s old news by now, but it still amazes me. I mean, it might as well have been a streetwalker halloween costume. Extreme short skirt, boots, belly shirt. I did a double take. And yep, the girl looked to be 11 or 12.

Did you notice the term "poll dance." Is she being too clever for me or did she write this quickly and/or without the aid of an editor?

OTOH, B.O. will need to perform one of these for the state media if his numbers keeping trending south.

My DD and I had the same discussion. She’s building a “time capsule” had already decided to ditch the Miley posters on her wall. “She’s not a good role model for my kids”..LOL!

From stiletto crib shoes to padded trainer bras, our culture is steadily eliminating a wholesome, innocent girlhood


I thought she was joking. But no.

Babies in Stilettos? It's Heelarious!
