I was in Archies Gallery the other day and this is what I saw there amongst all the other things on display..which bothered me.
Is this how fun and ‘in-thing’ defined as ? Is this what teenagers are going to learn,about independence and individuality, when they step outside in this world ? And I thought when I’ll be a parent I’ll be very good mother and would instill good values in my children right from the start.Okay I’ll do that.But what when they step out and look around at these kind of signals which might make them think opposite than what I had taught them? I’m scared.I’m worried for not only my unborn children but for all the other set of parents in the world.
I could not stop myself at clicking the picture so I went to the store manager and spoke to him about what came to my mind.He was a mid aged gentleman and responded positively that he will surely give the feedback to the company.I don’t know whether it will work or not.I don’t know if Archies Gallery will understand parent’s difficulties but the whole point is who all will you stop? May be these kind of stores would put a stop to such products..just may be. But what about the internet ? Who governs the rules there ?
Recently,spotted this piece of news on NYTimes website. A teenager,in protest of her parents,forms a group on Facebook.
All this makes me wonder…where is this teenage world headed to ? And what are the parents supposed to do ?
