Protecting Your Tween From Sexualization You can avoid buying into the sexualization of tweens in particular by avoiding all of the media hype. You can also avoid the sexualization of your own tween by helping them learn about healthy sexuality at a young age, and by teaching them that they are so much more than their appearance, and so much more than how much sexual activity they have or haven’t. To protect your tweens from sexualization, here are some things you can do: Avoid buying into the sexualization of tweens by avoiding all media trends and hype that includes sexualization. Help them learn and educate them about healthy sexualization even at an early age. This way, they will become more aware of sexualization and what they should do about it when they will get into a situation where.

Equipping your child with your views on sex will help to counter any brainwashing effects of what they’re seeing. Get your hands on So Sexy So Soon. This book, by Drs.

Diane Levin and Jean Kilbourne, guides parents and caregivers from the early years to the “tween” years in grappling with youth sexualization. How Can I Protect My Tween From Sexualization? Medically reviewed by Joel Forman, MD Development Milestones for Your 11-Year-Old Child. Medically reviewed by Joel Forman, MD The Signs of Puberty in Tween Boys. Medically reviewed by Lindsey Waldman, MD, RD What You Should Know About Tween.

The rush in hormones at puberty can lead to children having sex at an early age. Teenage pregnancies are on the rise. The irony of it is that though they are physically capable, they are emotionally immature and ill-equipped to handle the consequences of their behavior. 40% of 13 –.

Before we look at ways to protect our daughters from sexualizing messages from the media, we must first examine ourselves to see if perhaps we have propagated this damaging message. If outer appearance is important to you and out of balance, chances are you have passed the same mind-set onto your daughter. The Task Force described sexualization as: “when a person’s value comes only from her/his sexual appeal or behavior, to the exclusion of other characteristics, and when a person is sexually.

I can’t fall asleep without rubbing my feet together. I’ve been doing this since my teenage years. EDIT: One of the sweetest users wished me a happy blue cheese day. I had no idea what it meant so I googled and found out the Blue Cake means it’s my CAKE DAY today!!

Never in these four years have I ever realized when my cake day was. A recent study found that girls as young as six years old wanted to be like dolls who were dressed in a sexy way compared to dolls who were dressed stylishly, but covered up. These young girls associated being sexy with being the way they wanted to look, being popular in school, and who they wanted to play with. Another finding of the study was the girls who spent a lot of time with media and.

  • What if they don’t spank you but hit you with a spatula on the head, shoulders, hands, pretty much anywhere besides the butt? Would that be child abuse?

  • Is it even mandatory for female idols to wear such disgustingly short clothes? I hate this kpop protocol!! Can’t they just wear what they want to…

  • Im 14 years old but in a school performance, I was grouped up with three seniors and had to perform a dance, I was 11 back then. My body structure isn’t considered to be a ‘cHiLd-LiKe’ and when I came off the stage, I heard some of my classmates and some elder friends I had and they told me that the seniors of class 12th and 11th were saying this and that and some nasty shit. At the moment I didn’t understand, no doubt I was extremely innocent, but when I finally realised what they meant, I felt ashamed of myself even when I shouldn’t.
    People really need to stop doing this with anyone. Idol or not, underage or not, this needs to stop. I see no difference in cat calling and sexualizing tbh.

  • Spanking can be Child Abuse if the person administering the punishment is in a rage while doing so. When you r enraged and act in the heat of the moment, you are not thinking with a clear head and therefore fail to truly know whether or not you crossed a line in that form of punishment. I believe a parent who chooses spanking as a form of dicipline needs to be emotionally collected before administering such a punishment, because Hitting a child in anger is no different then hitting a boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/wife / friend/ or stranger in a fit of rage.

  • I see fanfictions of Huening Kai on Wattpad all the time. I think they’re okay until they add smut. Then it’s not. It’s disgusting. Actually, it is for the entire maknae line because they’re all underage. The only members that are justifiable is Soobin and Yeonjun because they’re twenty and up.

  • when a 14 year old is left with a 12 year old with disabilities on both sides and the 14 year old doing all the house work. does that count as neglect. when the adult is home they lock themeselves in there room. If so can you help me. I don’t want to call someone.

  • 2:46 man quando eu vi a Wonyoung e a Yiren(hoje em dia a Yiren é maior de idade, mas na época ela tinha entre 16 e 18 anos) dançando essa música me deu uma raiva… eu não sei se tinha mais menores de idade, mas mesmo se não tivesse nenhuma, e se alguma se sentisse desconfortável dançando essa música?

  • I am not even 15 but when I was 10 I didn’t watch sponge bob and even wore shorts out because of the hot weather…… oops I guess

  • Sexualising minor, above 18, male, female or anyone is wrong…I yeah you can use words like hot and sexy ( that too on above 18 people) but sometimes people just cross line…and it’s just simply gross and disgusting

  • When I was 16 years old an elderly neighbor that was losing his eyesight trotted over to my home and asked me to read a letter. I stumbled and mumbled trying to read the letter. I simply could not read it. Mr. Gindlesberger gently took the letter and said, “You have never been taught anything.” I kind of chuckled and thought I went through the public schools what do you mean I have never been taught anything. His statement was so unusual it stuck with me. I thought about his statement regularly through my life and I am 62. I had a girlfriend in 1980 that told me my family had made a mess of my life. I thought who are you to say such a thing. Again, her statement was so unusual it stuck with me all these years. Finally, one day a few years after I had been told these things and other hints dropped that I was the victim of Childhood Neglect, I realized, what Mr. Gindlesberger was saying that I was literally never taught anything. How does a child go through 12 years of public schools and the teachers do not teach the child a single thing? If this is not a case of child abuse and neglect what is?

  • You forget that the legal age of concent in Korea is 15 so according to her country Tuyutzy was old enough to be acting sexy so stop bringing in your big headed American thoughts into it because the legal age of concent isn’t 18 in Korea so it’s fine! Not every single country has the same legal age of consent as America but Americans seem to forget that and it’s annoying when Americans do it like GET OVER YOURSELVES! And stop thinking that your the best country ever because your not and your far from it!

    I don’t think it’s in theaters anymore (at least not around where I live), so I can’t wait till it comes to netflix

  • god, yes. i vividly remember consistently sob-crying for legitimately half the length of the movie, and when I left the theatre. it wasn’t sadness, it was just a mix of emotions that got me so overwhelmed that I just cried. for 45 minutes. as an lgbt teenager, this movie got to me for so many reasons (many personal, some general). compared to other lgbt movies, this one holds so much realism, as you said, and the way things were handled came across as human and I could really believe the characters were real people.
    and oh my GOD, the ferris wheel scene? the ENTIRE THEATRE was cheering and clapping (I was doing the same, but sobbing at the same time. it was the most overwhelmed I’d been in a while and it was in the best way possible!!) and I heard the manliest voices yelling “HELL YEAH!!”. it’s literally the only time ive ever clapped in a movie theatre lol. it was so surreal to me. to see so much support and representation on the big screen. in public. that’s also what made me cry for 20 minutes after the movie ended, lmao.
    ive rewatched it once, and although I started noticing flaws, that will never tarnish what I experienced that night.
    just the pure emotion and memory of watching that movie for the first time, surrounded by so many supportive people, I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. I honestly think watching love, simon made me a slightly different person in the best way possible. it inspired me to come out to my friend, who ended up coming out to me in return.
    and I remember ordering the book one day after seeing the movie, and once it arrived, I read the book in two days. the fastest I’ve ever read a book. it’s not an exaggeration to say that this may be one of my favourite movies (and books) for a while.

  • Estoy triste por Tzuyu, el baile que hizo fue algo “inadecuado” para su edad, pero eso no justificaba que empezaran a sexualizarla, ella merece respeto, y no sólo las/los menores de edad, sino los mayores también, y bueno, decir que es sexy no está mal, pero hablemos con respeto si se va a hablar de esa característica.

  • People have been speaking up about sexualization of minors and females in kpop but no one bothers to speak up about sexualization of males in kpop. Sexualization of anyone be it a male or female idol or be it of minors or adults is not OKAY. All idols are sexualized and companies should stop it. No just sexualizing minors and females but also males because they are humans and they feel uncomfortable as well. Females are sexualized more compared to males but doesn’t change the fact males are sexualized as well. Sexualization of all kpop idols needs to stop.

  • FINALLY someone has said it
    Society is fucked up
    Plus how is that girl licking an ice cream even sexual r people that dumb omg

  • I haven’t watched love simon in like3 months and rewatching those scenes along with the explanation as to why the movie is just such a good representation or irl lgbt people struggles but also has a happy ending, it literally made me cry

  • sexualizing ISNT okay. wither its an underage person or not. to people who sexualize other people. what would YOU do if someone sexualized you. Its not kool or funny.

  • Feels like company are too desperate to lengthen the career of an idol aka earn more while spending less that they start doing all kind of stuff to young idol. Like, I’ve always disagree with the policy to let KIDS work an adult in the kpop culture but this is absolutely b*llshi*t.

  • I really like the fact that Bighit announced that they are suing everyone who sexualizes the minors in TXT and I’m here for it!
    That video of tzuyu really always makes me so uncomfortable:((

  • Well. Da duck.
    Idk about the 11yo girl. But honestly. They used adults codes to make this add. Then back step with a innocent ”yea but we used only kids features”. Obviously any adults with their whole cells will see something odd with this add. Not necessarily see it ”sexy” but definitely not ”kid friendly”.
    About other idols. Sad but it’s the part of the job. That’s the ”entertaining” they also signed for… I guess.
    About txt, it always amazed me how people talks only about Hueningkai sexualisation… When Taehyun has literally the same age, and hell. He has more problematic fanfictions than Kai.
    I’d say, if you go check about fanfictions.. you are aware in what you’re going through. Also people writing are free to expose their fantasies…’cause it’s only what it is. Thanks God.
    And to end my comment. I think sexualise someone is normal. Questionable most of the time. But normal. We’re human. The problem is when you mix ”dream” and ”reality”. Go get some help if it’s the case.

  • i completely agree, i felt It was very real to life, i had to get the book. it doesn’t over dramaticise anything, which is common in american films. i actually related a lot.
    Another lgbt film i feel correctly represents how life is like is the dansih girl. i reeeecommend

  • *LITTERALLY* MY parents ;_;
    I can’t wear a skirt or dress that is upper on my knee. (i dont mean miniskirt) (sorry for my english)

  • Sexualizing someone in general underage or not is wrong! And with sexualization someone, it’s making disgusting comments on body parts and some people’s fantasy, saying you find that or that idol hot isn’t sexualizing!
    Some of you have to stop TWISTING my words, I NEVER said it’s the idols fault, they can do whatever they want, it’s the PEOPLE who should stop sexualizing them!

  • about everyone in the theater was crying when simon got outed because the panic and just anxiety in that scene was transmitted to the audience so well but at the end me and my friend walked out both smiling through the tears

  • I mean the age is young but I don’t care about the age yet just need to stop sexualizing them they are just literally following their dreams so leave them alone like people are so disgusting

  • I remember when twice debuted and tzuyu’s body was all ppl talked about, she was so young at the time and idk i just found that so incredibly weird because the girl was barely 16-17 and all people talked about was her body

  • I get your point and I appreciate your review on this wonderful movie, but I don’t 100% agree with you. The movie might be a reality in countries like the USA, Canada, Spain (the country I live in), Germany… But it doesn’t really represent the whole world, really. Even if I live in Spain, my family isn’t from here, which means they already have their on ideas on homosexuality, and I’ll tell you it’s not nice to live with them. I’ll soon turn 17, and I haven’t come out yet (nor I think I will in the near future), I haven’t told anyone irl because I’m scared and most importantly I avoid to leave the house. I am not trying to say my life is horrible, bacause it isn’t, but waking up in the morning and having the first thought that comes up to your mind about how much you hate yourself isn’t really a nice feeling.
    Anyways, I did enjoy de movie and I have nothing against it. Thanks for your review too.

  • Great analysis. I never got the feeling that Simon’s dad had an issue with Simon being gay though. What I took from dad’s reaction is guilt that for all those years of cracking ‘harmless’ gay jokes in front of his gay child and how insensitive he must have come across to his son. And feeling like his son must hate him for that.

  • This is very perceptive look back at the movie, and I agree with everything you say. Even to this very much older gay man, this movie got so much right about what it’s like to be gay and in the closet in high school, in ways that are true now and were true when I was a teenager. And yes, I think you don’t have to be gay to get this film, since everybody feels like they are different and misunderstood when they’re that age.

  • That 14 year old performing side to side looked 19 lol. I feel bad for her, having to be “sexy” to thousands of people and being called uncomfortable things that should not be said about someone underage must be weird. I would feel awkward (I’m 14 as well)

  • Am I the only one who feel like “Love, Simon” is outdated because for me as a gay person when I was in high school freshmen year I came out and nothing happened no one made fun of me I was in football with my boyfriend at the time and everyone in the crowd cheered for us and the most conservative Republican person I was friends with him and understand me as a person because we talk about our view when I saw the movie it felt so outdated if they set it in the 90s it would work but it just felt so outdated

  • i found out people are literally waiting for idols to turn 18 and its very disgusting:(( bc i found someone saying on hueningkai’s bday saying they waited to s3xualize him

  • While I enjoyed this movie, does anyone else think what Simon did to Blue at the end of the movie is completely hypocritical? Simon is furious with Marvin because Simon was supposed to be the one to let everyone know that he’s gay, and Marvin took that away from him. Simon basically tells Blue to meet him in public, which would confirm Blue gay to the public as well.

  • Ok….

    I’m so triggered I’m really annoyed with jyp why would they do that to tzuyu she was a teenager like wtf! That is just not okthey need serious help

  • actually, it’s pretty normals today for an 11 year old to wear makeup.
    Ella was not using the ice cream to pretend it was a sexual object, it was that it was delicious and fun.
    She was being a kid. and… Parents take their kids to get ice cream all the time! So everyone’s point is pointless
