Now I hate to hear people whine and complain as much as the next person but being a mom aint easy. Being a single mom is even more stressful, although being a mom in a bad marriage sounds worse. It's six of one, half dozen of the other.
Before when a single mom had to raise a boy by herself it was a big deal but now with the world being the way it is having a girl can be scary too. Throw in hostile and overly sexual music, television combined with the lethal internet and access to drugs and you have a potential disaster. Nowadays teens are sexting and taking topless photos of themselves for their myspace page. Kids don't realize they could have just broadcasted themselves topless all the way to Saudi Arabia. Now let's throw in piercing, tattooing and when they really want to act out there is always cutting. My daughter is only in bridge k and I'm already trying to be careful about who and what she comes in contact with.
I am certainly not blaming rap or metal music so please nobody run with this but I just want to point out that songs that kids are listening to don't help. Here's a little of the teen hit Crank Dat by Soulja Boy. Keep in mind the boy whose rapping is like sixteen:
Soulja Boy Off In This Hoe
Watch Me Lean And Watch Me Rock
Super Man Dat Hoe
Then Watch Me Crank Dat Robocop
Super Fresh, Now Watch Me Jock
Jocking On Them Haterz Man
When I Do Dat Soulja Boy
I Lean To The Left And Crank Dat Dance
I'm Jocking On Yo Bitch Ass
And If We Get The Fightin
Then I'm Cocking On Your Bitch
You Catch Me At Yo Local Party
Yes I Crank It Everyday
Haterz Get Mad Cuz
"I Got Me Some Bathin Apes"
I'll let you figure out what that means.
