Grown up too soon yet so late!

A girl croons and dances to the tune of Akon's song "no body wanna see us together...."the sexual and the exploitative leaves everybody's mouth open.All they could think was from where had she learnt such expletive moves...

Sexy sells!

From dolls to dresses- sexy sells.Little girls want to be called "hot and sexy".This season judges of India's Got Talent got shocked when they had pre-teen contestants dancing too provocatively.Sexualisation of children in reality is giving parents a new level of anxiety.Parents simply don't know if it is really a good fact that their children know everything in-spite of experiencing nothing.The way little boys and girls dress and behave is worrying.But the slowdown it seems is not really possible.

Who is to blame?

Recently British prime minister David Cameron admitted that he wanted to end sexualisation of children and curb the amount of sex oriented programs coming on TV.A lot of sexualisation happens through internet and shows like"How I Met Your Mother and Two And A Half Men". Children today know far from what their minds and hormones can handle.Young girls today are dressed more like adults because marketers are producing adult fashion for girls.Contemporary media is telling girls that they must have a body like a bomb shell forgetting various aspects of personalities like intelligence, spirituality,community contributions etc.

Result!

When kinds are sexualised their value comes from their sex appeal which can be damaging.And the result is that three ten year students get suspended from their schools for sexual harassment and when asked they admitted that they were playing that sex game.Sexualisation is just having negative impact on young girls,including high incidence of eating disorders and the dark side of all this is the child pornography, teenage pregnancy etc.

How to control?

parents can do their best by taking certain appropriate steps.
1.Making their children choose appropriate role model.
2.Try thinking from the children points of view .
3.Encourage your children to ask anything and everything.
4.Try not to make your children feel guilty
5.Educate your children on the basics including sex.

Good for you geeta. It is criminal the way young girls are conditioned by society into being sex objects.

In a materialistic society where people would do anything for money, one cannot help but see how the media influences the young minds to grow up before their times and even do things before their own times.This has given rise to several teen pregnancies, prostitution, violent behaviour etc. The sad thing is that the parents of these children are encouraging them to do such things and the worst sensation is that many of them also pay men to rape their kids to attain their womanhood and women to help them attain the boyhood.
In a society that is devoid of ethics and conscience, it has been deemed acceptable to have TV programmes that deem such behaviour okay and people who watch it get influenced to do the same to ape the celluloid life.
Nice one!!!
