Down with Soulja Boy
Wish I was posting my bella babe card, but instead, I am sitting here heart sick. I have two boys that I hope become respectful young men and two girls who I pray remain young women of virtue. But when I observe the culture in which they are enmeshed I become very afraid. I spent almost 15 years working with youth in PA and feel like I am at least aware of what the kids try to pull. But there is a part of me that resists that children are really this callous. When my children would play a very catchy tune by SOULJA BOY I would tap along...but eventually it sounded to me like he was saying superman that ho...what is that!! Well, Ho did it for me...if it sounds like a ho, then it probably is! I am not stupid. Evidently, however, I am naive. This blog was pointed out to me by a friend (thanks Irene!) I thought I was a careful parent; now I know I am not vigilant enough. I want my children to live in the world, but I don't want them to contribute to the evil.
