I am heartbroken for the little girls out there who are not only unprotected, but exploited – even by their own parents.
I was absolutely apalled today when I read the following article, which included a video of 7-year-old girls at a dance competition! They were dancing to bump and grind music, in red and black stripper bikinis, gyrating for the crowd:
“The signs are all there: The hip-grinding come-ons. Legs kicked up to the ear. Skin-baring lingerie. This particular video remake of Beyoncé’s hit “Single Ladies” follows a rubric of raunchy moves straight out of the pole-dance manual. But the performers, according to published reports, are 7-year-olds.”

And this isn’t an isolated incident. When I was a kid I took baton lessons at the local rec. center. My sister took ballet and gymnastics. They offered a lot of different classes; but, I don’t recall any pole dancing classes. I guess I was born too early for all the fun.
Tantra Fitness, a dance studio in Canada, offers pole dancing classes to kids and is even debating a mommy and me class.
And, last year, 16-year-old Disney star, Miley Cyrus, proved quite the role model, demonstrating her pole dancing skills at the Teen Choice Awards.
Hug your children tight tonight. And pray for all the little girls out there whose parents don’t seem to know any better.
“And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.’” (Jeremiah 32:35, NKJV)
