Ok this disturbs me!! Not only the kids but why did the photographer even take this pic!! Why did he let it get out! Many would whoop their behinds, but that is not the only key. This isn't just learned behavior from seeing a rated R flick, this is a performed behavior. When teens are over sexed at 15, something happened at 12!! Don't get me wrong, I blame the media too, but we know this did not come from it alone. Parents, close your door, check out your new boyfriend that is taking your 4yr lil girl to the restroom!! Be more observant. We know children will experiment. They are exploring their bodies, things are happening to it that they don't understand. Talk to them before their friends and t.v does. I have an 8yr old and this pic makes me wonder should I have talked to him at 5?? Parents this is not acceptable! Stop letting the tv raise your kids! Promote school, career, marriage then kids! Give them love, because if you don't they will get it from someone else! Tell them sex is for married couples. Tell them. I promise they are listening. Example, my son could not understand how me and my brother have different fathers but my mom only married one! For a while he actually thought kids only came from married people. Great way to think but its not true. I had to destroy that utopia with the truth...every parents nightmare!!!

I remember the first time I saw this picture. I was like..."what the hell."

It would be nice if children came from married couples. But that would be too much like right.

@Don- and the worse part is no one wants to be married before children or sex. The Halle Berry's of the world are wanting kids with no way!!

I just saw your comment on Bloggers' Delight and I knew right away I had to come here. You certainly don't disappoint. I just find it incredible that your wholesome, common sense point of view is more and more in the minority.
You describe explaining to your son that baby didn’t come from married people only as a nightmare. WHY? That sounds to me like an incredible opportunity to teach him that he is not only loved, but also part of a very special family. I’m the father of the most amazing 9 year old girl in the world and I remember with great pride the moment when she asked me where babies come from. She could have asked anybody, but she chose to ask her daddy! THAT is special. So of course I told her. If you want to know how that went down, let me know and I’ll find my post on that special occasion and send it to you. It was. Well, I’m at work, but a quick scan of your topics tells me that I’ll be back very soon when I can read it all. I’m adding you to my blog-roll for easy access. WELCOME to Blogland :-)

Peace and Love,

i totally agree with you, this is very disturbing! i'm thinking of having a child and this is just unbeleveable. If i do have a child, i'll do whatever it takes to get this to not happen.
