My daughter and her friends are in 8th and 9th grade (she's in 8th, but has some 9th grade friends who hang out as well.) I notice that all of them, including my teen, may be influenced by singers like Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, etc. My daughter often uses inappropriate language and sometimes swear words may just "slip out" of her mouth. I told her that that kind of language is inappropriate, and I do not tolerate behavior like that. Her friends' moms have told me something about THEIR children using inappropriate words frequently as well...they created a club called the Bad B*tches Club and that "whoeve wants to be a bad b*tch can join". I know that some singers that the children listen to considers themself that name they just named their club. It got to the point where I had to set strict limits for her and got her phone taken away. The music videos that tweens and teens are into are very inappropriate and not suitable for kids - the celebrities wear revealing clothing, rap about sexual/drug-related topics, and have inappropriate scenes. I don't want to get to the point where I have to restrict my child from listening to what she wants. Any ideas? I restricted her electronics already...but there's always music at parties, school dances, friend's house, outside of home, and elsewhere.
