Hindsight is 20/20, right?
So do you suppose one day Miley Cyrus' mom and dad will look back and wish that they'd kept their talented twelve year old daughter back in Franklin, TN instead of moving her out to Hollywood?
Do you think they'll wish they hadn't exposed her to people who don't have her best interest at heart? Will they regret the decision to let her change her name? Will they wish they hadn't let their 15 year old pose for suggestive photos wrapped in a bedsheet? Will they wish they'd paid attention to what their daughter was doing before she posted pictures of herself in her underpants on the internet? Will they lament letting their teenaged child date much older guys? How about letting her dance on a pole like a stripper at the Teen Choice Awards? Or give a LAP DANCE to the director of her last movie?
Will they wish they'd stayed at home in Tennessee and taught her some manners and modesty?
But just in case the rest of us parents of young girls think WE might live to regret it if our daughters grew up to be skanks...maybe we should look for different role models for our daughters right away!!
Because watching this video?
And listening to those lyrics?
(Which I'm posting at the bottom of this post if you're curious enough to read them.)
Letting our daughters look up to THAT?
In my opinion, that's the sort of thing that leads to THIS!
Here are the lyrics to Miley's newest song. Just what I want my daughter singing, to be sure!I'm so thankful my own girl is past the Hannah Montana stage.
For those who don't know me, I can get a bit crazy
Have to get my way, 24 hours a day
'Cause I'm hot like that
Every guy everywhere just gives me mad attention
Like I'm under inspection, I always get the 10s
'Cause I'm built like that
I go through guys like money flyin' out their hands
They try to change me but they realize they can't
And every tomorrow is a day I never planned
If you're gonna be my man, understand
I can't be tamed, I can't be saved
I can't be blamed, I can't, can't
I can't be tamed, I can't be changed
I can't be saved, I can't be (can't be)
I can't be tamed
If I see my reflection about my intentions
I'll tell ya I'm not here to sell ya
Or tell ya to get to hell
I'm like a puzzle but all of my pieces are jagged
If you can understand this, we can make some magic
I'm on like that
