As a parent, we do our best to “parent” and guide our children through the myriad of milestones of growing up and the challenges that come before us when we least expect it. Here is a short blog excerpt sharing Web Diva’s opinion on the tragedy in today’s parenting where children are exposed to adult situations long before they are ready.
My issue with Pride Month is the number of Pride parades that took place in open public forums that were not family friendly. Just as the United States and other countries set ratings on movies to protect children from seeing violence, bad language or sexual content, I’d argue the same for some of the display of nudity and provocative dancing that should remain in an adult entertainment setting. There are adult businesses that prevent underage people from entering for a reason. I can’t unsee the pictures and videos of some parts of these parades where small children were present. Sure, you can say, a small child won’t remember it, but I’d say, let a child keep their innocence until such time they are of an age to comprehend what they are seeing and even make the choice to go.
