So…Miley Cyrus. I know. At the opening of this writing I can just sense you guys rolling your eyes 🙂. It has been getting on my nerves hearing about it to. I tried to avoid jumping onto this bandwagon, but I must poke a heartfelt jab at the Mommas who keep writing in about their disgust in what their little baby girls are seeing on television.
America is designed to point fingers, and place blame, and use scapegoats for many of our ill behavior’s. We even blame the entertainment industry for the poisoning of our children’s young minds. I blame parental guidance myself….or the lack there of.
When logging into my Facebook page, the first thing that I see is a post about this young ladies pornographic antics on stage. There were so many mothers saying many bad things about her performance and how she is representing young women in a negative light. I saw a clip of her presentation, and it was nasty….that is clearly an understatement My thoughts were: “Eeew!”But my mind immediately focused on all of these complaining mothers.
Entertainers, are not thinking about filtering their money for the sake of your children. MTV is an over sexualized channel, like most of these secular channels. What did you expect? Entertainers are not there to teach your children how to be proper reputable, moral, and modest young people. They are there for the purpose of ENTERTAINING. They are working to make a living. A lot of these people make their money and pay their bills off of the lack of morals. Surely you mothers knew this? (Sarcastically stated)
One mom wrote: “Young ladies….you are SO much more than your body!” This in response to photos posted of the performance. There was a slew of other cornball comments made by these irate mom’s. So let me get this straight. Your daughters are sitting there in front of the tube getting demoralized by a channel/show that you let them watch, and that you are paying for, and you are outraged? Get out of here with that! It is called parental C-E-N-S-O-R-S-H-I-P. This is what causes you to tell your daughters their TRUE worth? That is a shame! So, who is really being the negative influence?
I feel this disdain that these mother’s are expressing, should also be addressed towards what their daughters, also their son’s have to see simply walking around: shirtless men and boys, pants sagging to the floor, women and girls wearing pieces of clothing, and walking around acting raunchy…….this is what our children are exposed to, always. Why complain over someone on the television, when our children should understand the difference of morality and immorality, modesty and immodesty, beyond the television? I am assuming that the young girls and boys viewing the trash that the parents are *allowing them to see, means that they are old enough to understand the definition of those 4 words.
The bottom line is:
Do not be mad at other human beings not living up to your personal standards of what moral is and is not. Do not voice your anger at these people, when YOU, as a mother, father, caregiver, have total control of what your child/children watch on the television in your home. Do not blame the world….take control of your OWN family.
