Train Up a Child...

by Stacy McDonald

I am heartbroken for the little girls out there who are not only unprotected, but exploited – even by their own parents.

I was absolutely apalled today when I read the following article, which included a video of 7-year-old girls at a dance competition! They were dancing to bump and grind music, in red and black stripper bikinis, gyrating for the crowd:

“The signs are all there: The hip-grinding come-ons. Legs kicked up to the ear. Skin-baring lingerie. This particular video remake of Beyoncé’s hit “Single Ladies” follows a rubric of raunchy moves straight out of the pole-dance manual. But the performers, according to published reports, are 7-year-olds.”

(What were these parents thinking when they put their little girls in a class like this? What are these parents hoping their young daughters grow up to be? Pray for these young girls, they are innocent, but won't remain that way very long.)

To read the rest of this article go to Your Sacred Calling.

I saw on TV a case of a 7 year old girl who was cut from the cheerleading team because her parents questioned the appropriateness of them doing a cheer to "Bootie call". The district said they had been doing that song for years and that no one had ever complained about it before. They had no intention of changing either. I don't understand it.

I totally agree with you, I don't understand either.

I saw this video awhile ago-I couldn't even watch more than a few seconds. I just can't believe that parents think this is ok.
