She May Be Mad Now, But I Hope She Will Thank Me Later
My daughter was on the phone with her mother tonight. Her mother allowed her to listen to the song, "All About That Bass." Jaina asked if I liked it. I replied, "No." I have never heard the song until tonight. And, I disapprove of the lyrics therein. My daughter is eleven, but she is an eleven year old with Downs. So, her mind is between 6-7, most times. Even if she did not have Downs, I still would not approve of the song. It had filthy language in it and was rather perverse. It is not suitable for a young lady to listen to. Add to that, we are a Christian household. I wish her mother would be more mature in this matter of what is suitable for young children to listen to, but there is nothing much I can do but try my best to explain to my (step) daughter why me and her father do not approve of the song nor like it. But, when we try to instill good values in her, we tend to be the "bad" guys. I love her so I am cautious of what she hears and sees. I hope she can understand this someday.
