Maybe you just misunderstood her. I knew this day was coming. Maybe not quite this soon but here it is.
As sure as her first boyfriend pulling up in a tricked out custom van and blowing the horn from the driveway or her dyeing her hair fuschia, it was only a matter of time before the dark side of pop culture began to tap on her protective shell of Disney magic. Well, you see honey, the Moxie dolls are really just MGA Entertainment's attempt to a rebrand those pouty-lipped, uber-urban sluts, The Bratz Dollswhich were marketed to a young demographic despite the fact they were made up like painted whores and modeled after skanks hanging around backstage at the VMAs, hoping to make it into Lil Wayne's limo after the show for a sip of Cristal and the honor of unzipping his chaps.
When my daughter was reaching for the horses in the mobile above her basinet, I never had to worry about "propriate. We were so meticulous about everything around her, the bed Are girls from Downers Grove sluts wash with Dreftnever Tideher music Slayer, Seasons in the Abyss, side one, track The funny thing is I thought it was all so challenging and I was constantly worried I would do something wrong.
I had no idea the Moxie sluts were strutting up on the horizon, all garter belts and attitude, waiting to drag my innocent little girl straight into a premature puberty. I had to laugh reading Sara Bieda's Parent to Parent column regarding trashy tween Halloween costumes. Thankfully my daughter wants to be Princess Tiana this year, so the innocence still holds sway. However, what happens when she wants to be a "naughty" Princess Tiana because that's what her friends are doing?
Or a naughty nurse? Or devil? Or CPA? Why does every little girl's Halloween costume have to have a "naughty" dark side? When some costume maker can turn Hello Kitty into a slut you know you've crossed the point of no return. Definitely not "propriate. I never let my daughter dress in a way that made her grandmother blush, or wear make up that made her look like a groupie at an Insane Clown Posse concert. That's not tolerated in my home! Obama's fault! I said the same thing when the discussion centered on someone else's kids ok, maybe not the Obama part.
As I am often fond of saying these days: What a fool I was. The negatives are constant and the sources are unexpected. One minute your kids are watching America's Funniest Home Videos my wife pees herself every time someone trips and falls, the kids and I like dogs doing goofy things and the next there's a commercial for Keeping Up with the Kardashians, featuring Chewy Clopie, Crunchy, whatever her name is humping the bumper of her Bentley.
You can't reach the remote fast enough, or lurk over their shoulders every time they log on to a favorite online game, or monitor every conversation during play dates. It's impossible.
When I was a kid I don't ever remember commercials for Starskey and Hutch or Berretta running during Saturday morning cartoons because it wasn't "propriate," but Clopie can hump the car on the ABC Family channel because some slime-bag network wonk knows that parents might be watching alongside the kids so the hell with "propriate"—run the teaser. The negative aspects of pop culture have become the norm on just about every media and information stream imaginable, and short of moving my family to an Amish community and putting my kids to work milking cows and mending hems, there isn't anything I can do about it.
I also know if I do nothing at all I risk my kids ing the legion of zoned out goth wannabes I see every morning parked under a pine tree near the high school sharing cigarettes and trying their best to look as disinterested and "whatever" as possible. Full disclosure: they are the minority of the kids I see most mornings. Still, there isn't a week that goes by that some girl in ripped sweats over black fishnets doesn't brazenly approach me and ask if I have a lighter, and all I can do is shake my head and think: Where is your mother?
How can we help our kids make the right choices about what's "propriate" when they are surrounded by examples of all the wrong ones? Maybe I need to keep it simple, be involved a bit more in their lives, guide them toward positive role models I'm looking at you, Girl Scoutsand say no when I decide something isn't "propriate," and stick to my guns over the ensuing protests.
I can explain it's better to be smart than pretty, to call attention to yourself because of what you've accomplished instead of what you're wearing—or what you're not. To show empathy versus draping yourself in superficial attitude, lead instead of follow, encourage instead of tease. I can teach my daughter that dyeing your hair green and putting on make-up with a spatula will likely get you attention, just not the kind of attention you want.
Hopefully Are girls from Downers Grove sluts will be enough. I can't stop the inevitable seep of pop culture but I can give them the tools they need to decide Are girls from Downers Grove sluts themselves what's "propriate," and why.
