As the proud father of a beautiful five-month baby girl, I’ve taken a greater interest in issues surrounding the growth of young girls, and the cultural surroundings that can have a negative impact on their development.
I’m concerned about an attitude that permeates our school system that sex is okay, as long as so-called “protection” is involved. At one time, a parent only had to fear Madonna pushing the wrong buttons. Now, educators are also proliferating the harmful message of no limits, no boundaries. Sheer innocence is lost when using sexuality to advance is deemed acceptable behavior.
I will refuse to send my little girl to any school that pushes sexual power as a virtue to ascribe to. And those schools are out there.
A new book by Dr. Miriam Grossman entitled, "You're Teaching My Child What?" how schools today support and forward a free sex mentality. You’d think it was 1967 all over again, but this is worse.
The inside flap of the book reads:
"If you think sex education is still about the birds and the bees, you're wrong. And it's not about science either. If you're a parent with children in the public school system, you need to know what's really going on.
In You're Teaching My Child What? Dr. Miriam Grossman rips back the curtain on sex education today, exposing a sordid truth. Instead of teaching our children the facts of life, sex educators are lying to them, ignoring medical fact in favor of politicized, and dangerous, propaganda that could ruin your child's life forever.
In You're Teaching My Child What? you'll learn what sex educators don't want you to know:
* Why the discredited founder of "sexology"--dead for half a century--has more influence on sex education than today's most eminent neurobiologists
* How information your child gets about common infections like herpes, warts, and Chlamydia is whitewashed
* When "safe sex" isn't safe: why condoms won't protect your teens from some of the most serious sexually transmitted diseases
* How sex educators try to normalize fringe behaviors--ignoring the health risks to your children
The sex education establishment would like to lull you into thinking that they know best--but the epidemic of sexually transmitted infections in young people today is testimony to a system that's gone mad.
Parents need to arm themselves and their children with the facts--the real facts of life. In You're Teaching My Child What? Dr. Miriam Grossman does just that, in an essential book to inform yourself and protect your children."
This might be worth a trip to Barnes and Noble, or your local library.
I learned about this book from a column by Rebecca Hagelin who has quickly become a must-read columnist for me. Hagelin writes:
“We are at a crossroads in our nation and the pawn being used by those who seek to check-mate the family - the sacred and basic building block of all civil societies - is a little girl. She will be used and abused and then cast aside as the next little girls are born and brainwashed with ever increasing dangerous messages.”
That should be a wake-up call for parents.
