Today I was invited back to Allison Ferns’ show on Radio Sussex to do a review of today’s papers.
One of the stories I picked to discuss was the fact that former “ladette” and wild child, DJ Sara Cox has been discussing that now she has a young daughter, she is far more censorious about what she and her daughter watch or listen to. She even finds popular show “Come Dine With Me” too raunchy these days, complaining that someone is always stripping off or showing too much cleavage. On the music front – and despite being a Radio 1 DJ before her recent move to the more sedate Radio 2 – she also has concerns about the suitability of some of the music that is getting airplay these days. Sara mentions rapper “Pitbull”, whose sexist and aggressive lyrics degrade and disrespect women.
What do you think and as a parent yourself, how do you seek to control the constant stream of inappropriate content bombarding our children these days?
My book, ” THE SINGLE MUM’S SURVIVAL GUIDE – How To Pick Up The Pieces and Build a Happy New Life” is available now from Amazon and hits the shops on 1st July.
