Am I the only one that wants to keep my kids young and innocent?

OK let me get my juices flowing over something T and I and the kids saw last night on tv.  The show America's Got Talent is a decent show. We have watched it before and last night we let the kids watch it with us. They had some cool things on there and some things that the kids really enjoyed watching.

Like this one that C3 really liked

This was a great act. I mean that is talent. And there were others but I think that was the favorite.

But then comes out this 6 year old little boy and the uuhhh's and aahhhh's begin, awe he is so cute and whatever. Then Howie, Sharon and Pierce ask him questions. And that is when T and I looked at each other and at the same time said "No way, that is not right"  They were asking if he had a girlfriend and if she was watching and if he wanted to say anything to her and then he says "I love you"  That is in NO WAY right for a 6 year old to even think he has a girlfriend or to even be telling another little girl he loves her. Its not cute, its not cool and its nasty and the mother and father should be ashamed. Then the 6 year old little boy goes on to do this

I am not intending to bash a little 6 year old boy. My problem is that when he is dancing and then starts thrusting his hip and shaking his little boy junk like he is Usher, umm that is not called for. That boys mom and dad need to wonder if that was a good look or not. I don't not want my 7, 6, 4, or 2 year old child dancing like they are Usher or Shakira or whatever.

Kids are kids and should be kept as young and innocent for as long as they can be kept that way. My sons don't need to think they have a girlfriend and my daughter doesn't need to think she has a boy she loves. Hell NO!

Why does any child need to shake his shit, and on tv?  Im sure some of you out there don't agree with me, and that's ok, let your kids shake their shit, and while we are at it, my kids don't play with guns (we even took away the lego guns), see shows or movies that are older than their age limit, don't watch things with violence so if today is a day when you want to have a healthy debate, bring it on.

Kiss the baby

I'm in 100% agreement... I felt totally uncomfortable watching that.

I'm sure I shelter my kids too much; my 8 year old 3rd grader has never seen Hannah Montanna, High School Musical, etc. People say "Why not?!" I say "WHY?!". What could she possibly get from watching them?

Glad to know I'm not alone!

Exactly! I really don't get our society's fascination with children acting like adults. It makes me quite sick actually. Great post!

Sooo agree! My two are only little, but Miss 3 has never ever watched TV: DVDs, sure - where we know exactly what she's watching...

We met a family at a party...mum was telling me about the 5yo having a tantrum cos she couldn't watch Glee one night...'but she doesnt understand what she's watching, she just likes the singing'..WTF?? Why do folk give their kids so little credit?
