I love music and enjoy cheering for people competing for recognition. What I dislike is the filthy language coming from the “professional musicians” doing the judging. Anything that steals the purity and innocence of a child angers me. Pedifiles and molesters of babies and children most people agree are hurting children. But what about those who constantly spew out offensive language on television? These abusive words cruise across the airwaves on radio, television, and anything in print.
On The Voice, Blake and Adam use awful language weekly. On the The Sing Off, the same abusive language rolls off the judges mouths, too. Children watch these shows. How is this not hurtful to their innocence and purity?
As a teacher of twenty years, I strove to educate children with vocabulary to empower them in communication skills. Anyone can use gutter language, but is that the aim of those in positions of influence? Our state legislators worry about our educational standings in the world, but it seems the norm is to use sub par language to communicate our feelings, frustrations, and even our excitement!
Am I the only one who cares about the abusive language to which we as well as our children are subjected? Let me hear your concerns, too. Maybe together we can find ways to improve language standards for our children. Thanks for stopping by today.
