Last night at my Apples of Gold meeting, we discussed purity. This was hard for me because I am the mother of two girls. It is a topic that I have struggled with since the day they were born.
You take a look around at some of these young "ladies" out there and think, "Gee, I hope my girls never look/dress like that when they get older." Some sights actually make me throw up a little in my mouth.
Sexualizing young women in this society is a big problem! I want to find some of these parents out there to punch them in the neck and ask them what the hell they are thinking for letting their kid walk out of the house looking the way some of them do!
It makes me ask myself, how do I teach my girls to be respectable young women? How do I get them to realize they need to respect their bodies? To be modest? How do I teach them that boys really arent looking at their hearts but something a little different in that vacinity of the body?
Ive always said that I love having little girls its the teenage ones I dont want! I know how I was and it really is scary to think that they will be like me one day. I mean, dont get me wrong, I did turn out awesome. That is no thanks to my parents. They let me do whatever I wanted!
Am I overreacting? Im just trying hard now to put some good thoughts in their heads and let them know that they are beautiful every chance I get. My grandmother tells me I do it too much and that they will be big-headed but I disagree. In this world, I dont think that there is a such thing as too much love or too many compliments!
