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.

The answer is simple. Don't allow cultural sewage into your house. Have only one TV which the kids aren't allowed to touch without your permission. In the mean time, fill their heads with good things and surround them with good role models.
It's gotten to the point with my kids that when they hear someone go by blasting loud pop music out of their car, they cover their ears and yell, "Yuck, that's awful!"

(Sarah Palin will soon have more fans on Facebook than most major newspapers have readers.)
