What Messages Are Kids Being Sent About Sex (Video)

May 31, 2015

Video of 6-year-old girls twerking was widely disseminated on Twitter as people rightly criticized its inappropriate content and what’s becoming of kids in society today

Hollywood and the internet are sending kids some serious and detrimental messages about sex and it is doing damage in their young, impressionable lives. There are vines and You Tube videos of preteens and teens wearing next to nothing while twerking and gyrating like their favorites stars such as Miley Cyrus and Rihanna.

This is highly inappropriate and sexualizing minors, which can only lead to trouble in young minds not mature enough to process the full implications and responsibilities of sex.

Preteens, such as 8-year-olds are online making very adult and highly sexual statements on social networking about the opposite sex who attend their local schools and it is alarming. It is not good or healthy for a young, developing child’s psyche to be engaging in such thought and speech.

Preteens and underage minors should not be having sex nor talking about it in graphic and profane terms on social networking. It is inviting trouble from sexual predators, such as pedophiles.

Some may call it old fashioned to espouse these views, but when parents end up with an underage pregnancy in their family, 12-year-old girls expecting their own baby, suddenly life becomes very real and scary for the child carrying the child and the child who fathered the child, neither of whom are mentally equipped for parenthood.

Emotional and mental developmental progress should be done in stages, as the body naturally matures during puberty. Puberty should not include parenthood. However, it happens and in those difficult cases, minors should be given all the help and support they need.

Parents need to watch what their kids are getting up to online and protect them from growing up too fast. Parents need to talk to their children about sex and promiscuity.

I often see items on social networking tweeted in response to items that are trending (being written about by many on Twitter) and at times there are explicit and scandalous tweets by minors (8 to 16-year-olds) that warrants concern for the direction society is going in that kids who can’t even vote, drive or drink are stating such highly sexual things (oral sex, anal sex, vagina sex) that should be reserved for adulthood.

Teenage Purity Rings

 December 31, 2008

Kioni Lansbury was told she could not wear her purity ring to school, which was a violation of her rights (see story below)

A recently released study is claiming teenage virginity pledges do not work. I disagree. Have they questioned the millions of teens who’ve made this pledge, to see how many adhered to it and how many did not. To release such broad statements after having surveyed a small sampling of the Christian population is irresponsible and inaccurate. There are many Christians that wait until marriage to have sex. To release and tout such a questionable study as fact is to disregard and dishonor them for the character and integrity they’ve shown.

7 Factors That Foster Teen Virginity, Pledge or No Pledge

December 30, 2008 11:49 AM ET | Bernadine Healy M.D. – Pledges of no sex until marriage don’t work, especially if taken by 15- or 16-year-olds, according to a recent study in the journal Pediatrics. Despite broken promises, however, virginity-pledging teens were considerably more conservative in their overall sexual behaviors than teens in general—a fact that many media reports have missed cold. In other words, the act of making a virginity pledge doesn’t appear to affect a teen’s future sexual behavior. But the kind of teen who takes a pledge is the kind who’s already likely to be sexually restrained throughout adolescence.

Teenager banned from wearing Christian purity ring says school discriminated against her faith

A 12-year-old girl claims her school has discriminated against her faith after banning her from wearing a Christian purity ring. Kioni Lansbury was ordered to remove the jewellery, which shows her commitment to no sex before marriage, after a teaching assistant spotted it in class.

She now says that The Kings School in Ottery St Mary, Devon, should be supporting her stand against promiscuity – and that her purity ring is a religious symbol like the Muslim hijab. ‘Lots of girls sleep around and this ban does not give the right message to others. I want to keep myself pure,’ Kioni said.
