A friend just posted to Facebook a link to another blog. It was a mother writing notes to her daughter about how to be a good, kind, loved woman…unlike the women on The Bachelor…a program shehad just watched.
I read stuff like that a lot. People talk about how horrified they areby the women on The Bachelor or Jersey Shore. The more politically oriented will also sometimes complain about Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken or Fox News.
It all leavesme with one simple question. If you don’t like it, don’t want your kids to grow up emulating it…why are you inviting it into the most sacred places of your life? You complain, yet You invite these people into your homes more frequently than you invite in your ostensible friends. You give it space in your brain and your limited time.
So it’s not as bad as you tell your child it is? Or. You feel better about yourself in comparison? Why keep feeding the beast?
