Please teach your children! Children under the age of 16 are not mentally
prepared for dating. About the age of 16 is when girls stop believing in prince
charming and start becoming cynical. They stop believing everything they are
told and begin to question others, including authority figures, and they start
seeing the boys in their schools and neighborhoods as "boys". This
could be a dangerous time also but if the children are taught at a young age,
well before middle school, they will protect themselves and avoid the situations
that can get them hurt.
This is a natural outcome in a society where structure, discipline, and
accountability are not at all popular, let alone enforced. Kids are too often
given the idea that THEY are the ones to design the boundaries, and consequently
there are few boundaries whatsoever. Years ago, you might be hesitant to start
something because you couldn't be exactly sure who would end it or how it
would end--but you were pretty sure there would be consequences. Nowadays,
it's chaos and catch-as-catch-can, and people often never learn the basics
until they've squandered their opportunities.
I presume someone at DN chose this particular picture to accompany an article
about dating violence. A picture of young women scantily dressed bending
forward to show more cleavage. Are we supposed to draw a conclusion about that?
