Kids Dancing Sexy Is a Disgusting Trend, Horrifying for Parents [Editorial]
There’s a video circulating on the Internet that, as the mother of a 5-year-old girl, I find incredibly disturbing. The video is named “Bad Parenting,” and I couldn’t agree more.
In the video, there’s a boy grinding up behind a girl while she dances in a way that’s definitely beyond her years. Both look younger than my own daughter.
This is one of the big problems with today’s society: our kids are being sexualized younger and younger all the time. My child is seeing these nasty “dance moves.” Let it be known: her mama does not allow this kind of behavior at our house.
Now, a little “shake your booty” is fine, and most of the time it’s fun for both of us. We do love to dance and act silly when it’s just us. But if I ever saw some boy dancing with my baby like what’s happening in this video, well, there’s no telling what might happen.
I know Miley Cyrus wasn’t the first to exhibit this kind of nastiness publicly, but she did start a recent trend that’s sweeping through even the youngest generation. Congratulations, Miley — I hope you’re proud of yourself! But this video just makes me sick.
I ask my fellow parents: would you ever let your kids dance like this?
