Twerk Team......Seriously??

4 years ago

As much as I hate to waste time on this subject, I feel that I have no choice.

My 7-year-old daughter and I were in the mall at the cheer store when we ,unfortunately, came across this:

 

Yes, that is a "Twerk Team" hoodie for cheerleaders.  They come in sizes small enough to fit my daughter.

So for those of you that don't know, let me give you some "twerking" history.  Twerking was originated by strippers to entice  the men they were dancing for. ....Enough Said!! It now seems that in the post-"Miley" era, twerking has become a phenomena that is widely accepted.

I realize that, as parents, we all have different views about many things.  However, as the mother of two young girls, there are certain things that I just will not accept.  C'mon parents...we have to stop accepting things just because they are trendy.  The reason that there are "Twerk Teams" is because parents allow it......period.  Although we are coming up on 2014, there are still some things that don't change.  Moms, let your little girls be little girls while they can.

Can someone please explain to me when it became ok for underage girls to stick out their butts and shake them for an audience?????!!!

Housewife,mba
