The report Commercialisation and Sexualisation of Childhood conducted by Reg Bailey, Chief Executive of Mothers Union a Christian charity claims that nine out of 10 parents think that their children are growing up too quickly because of increasing sexualisation and commercial pressures, mainly from the internet and television
They behave in an overtly sexual manner before they are old enough to really understand what sexually provocative behaviour means, celebrity culture, adult style clothes and music videos are encouraging children to act older than they are.
Clothes, toys, games, music videos or other products that are inappropriate for early teens.
Public places were full of sexy ads that they felt were inappropriate for children
Programmes and TV ads before the 9pm watershed were inappropriate for children due to their erotic content.
But sexy advertising through mobile phones and access to pornography were top of the list in according to the report.
Reg Bailey claims to have polled 1,000 parents, and found 41% said that in the previous three months they had seen television programmes or advertisements before the 9pm watershed that they considered wrong for their children to view because of their sexual content and 40% said they had seen window displays or advertising hoardings inappropriate for children.
Of course he only interviewed Christian mothers who think that sex is wrong in some way and that children are not sexual!
Sex is an emotion like hunger and is neither wrong nor right and if the sexual emotions are not satisfied then the child becomes repressed.
Socialisation of children in punishing "sexually inappropriate behaviour" instills guilt and shame and prevents them as adults from having a healthy sex life.
Children cannot be sexualised because they are already sexual.
Parents forget their own sexual experiences and that they innocently masturbated at an early age until they were punished and discouraged and afterwards did it in secret and felt guilty afterwards but post orgasmic guilt can last a lifetime.
Nature rewards humans of all ages with the pleasure of orgasm and the release of the feel good "Love Drug" oxytoxcin into the body which also increases levels of trust, the reduction of fear and an enhancing effect on all social emotions including generosity.
