Concerns well founded and questions worth asking. But making sex "Bad" is why part of why kids are doing it. That and the lack of parental involvement. There's an idea! LET'S BE INVOLVED WITH OUR KIDS!<quoted text>
On the other hand, about half the babies born today are to single mothers and young girls seem to be growing up way too fast. Maybe we are exposing them to too much too soon.
Besides, what ever happened to the idea that women should not be objectified? Not to be prudish, but when I see pre-teens walking around looking like hookers, hear of their eating disorders, or read that they are getting implants while in high school, I have to wonder about their self-respect and their sense of worth. It just does not seem healthy.
I worked retail a few holiday seasons I know about 13 year olds wearing g strings that hang out of their lowrise jeans. They may buy some of it and hide it from their parents but yes, the stores aimed at little girls in Castleton and Greenwood AND CARMEL that make outfits you normally see on 25 year old club going women, is scarey to me too. But the parents are buying it up for their kids and then turning around and saying underwear with bows and lace are to blame for teen pregnancy? Doesn't really work. When women and girls wore bloomers and corsets they were getting knocked up too, just not as much because mom and dad were always around.
Blaming one company's store window of bras, underwear and pajamas is really simple but it isn't the core of the problem. Parents NOT PARENTING their kids is the core of the problem. My son is 5 and knows that girls and boys deserve the same respect.
Let me ask you something; should they take my son away from me because he's helped me do laundry and seen my bras and underwear? Am I increasing his libido? Probably not. If anything he will probably never look at a woman in boyshort or lowrise bikini panties and think "whoo sexy!" Because I'm his mom ..and that will always be.."just gross" to him like my mom's granny panties always were to me. The most he MIGHT think of with bras (if ever) is to put them on his head and run around the livingroom. When he gets old enough he'll be concerned with getting them off the girl in his math class. Is that abnormal? Because ever since women wore clothes, all males have hit an age where all they wanted to do was get said clothing OFF of us.
Be involved, help them with self esteem, teach them respect, teach them to think outside of their own immediate pleasure..these are the counteractions necessary. There is plenty of birth control out there, but for some reason people keep ignoring it.
