I have mixed feelings here.
First of all... her 8 year old has seen and heard plenty worse at home and at school - on TV and the internet. If she gets all bunched up over this - then she better gear up for a whole lot more (worse) to come.
Having said that - she’s right. She might as well go pick up grains of sand and throw them back into the ocean as far as complaining about the filth and crap on TV and in our culture. But at least she took a stand.
We had one Internet port when the kids were little. They were sent to school where I taught and knew what was going on.
We told them about this stuff when they were ready.
Now, they are bombarded with it at school media and on the Internet. And they can properly process it, fast forward it, and they recmize deviancy when they see it.
They have to. They’re going to be dealing with it until it runs its course and gets back to normal. And it will. Whether that’s a hundred yrs from now or not who knows
Russia has made it illegal to talk to kids about deviant sexual practices. Not through intolerance but to protect children from damaging psychological abuse
They are correct.
I have friends who have restricted what can be viewed on the TV at home and so far have kept their young teen’s minds from being polluted.
They have one of the largest DVD collections I’ve ever seen and not a filthy flick in the lot.
The kids are home schooled and well socialized between church, athletics and home school network.
It can be done. The kids will get to a point in their lives that they will be responsible for what they choose to view. Right now their parents have made it for them.
