I am sickened by most of what i see on TV these days... I turn on Nickolodeon and am disturbed by how they portray girls should look like. short shorts and skirts low cut skin tight shirts... anorexic.... many people tell me i micro-manage my children (8 yo & 9 yo) by not letting them watch nickolodeon, but in my mind i am thinking, i don't want my kids to be one of the ones pregnant in high school. I also don't like them singing songs about "I'm sexy and i know it" or too much taylor swift who constantly sings about her exboyfrinends as i don't want them thinking it is important to have boyfriends. I like them listening to empowering songs that make them feel like strong women. am i doing right by my kids? am i helping them be strong women when they grow up? or am i micro-managing them?
