Ok so i just found out about this group called One Million Moms that's purpose is quote
"Mom, are you fed up with the filth many segments of our society, especially the entertainment media, are throwing at our children? Are you tired of all the negative influences our children are forced to contend with? If so, we urge you to become a member of OneMillionMoms.com. OneMillionMoms.com was begun to give moms an impact with the decision-makers and let them know we are upset with the messages they are sending our children and the values (or lack of them) they are pushing. Our goal is to stop the exploitation of our children, especially by the entertainment media (TV, music, movies, etc.). Mom, OneMillionMoms.com is the most powerful tool you have to stand against the immorality, violence, vulgarity and profanity the entertainment media is throwing at your children. It is time to fight back!"
Their current issue is with Dancing With The Stars because they feel like allowing Chaz Bono to compete is giving a platform to the LGBT community. I have a lot of issues with this group. I don't understand why parents are so afraid of being open and honest with their children? So ABC told your kids what transgender means? TALK TO THEM! So what if your kids sees one of PETA's "I'd rather go naked then wear fur ads"? TALK TO THEM. BE A PARENT! Stop trying to have the media raise your child. The biggest influence in a child's life IS the parents. I would like to start a group of my own and anytime OMM's sends a petition to a network or an advertiser telling them to stop I will send one telling them that there are just as many parents out there that are willing to BE PARENTS and take care of this themselves. That belive in honesty and open communication with there children. I know a lot of women IRL who feel the same way I do. Parenting is MY job not the medias...and the "suggestive" things shown on tv have been a GREAT tool in TEACHING my child.
Cafemom has a very diverse group of women so i would like to ask you? Do you support trying to ban things from TV and Print ads or do you use those things as tools to have open honest communication with your children?Answer Question
