Your children are under attack. This assault is not coming from terrorists within or outside our borders. It is not coming from disturbed people in our communities.
This onslaught is coming from our own American popular culture: * Media violence and sexuality (e.g., video games, television, movies) instead of compassion * Bad behavior by professional athletes (e.g., Kobe Bryant, Terrell Owens) instead of respect * Celebrity-driven media (e.g., E!, the Osbournes) instead of substance * Physical attractiveness (e.g., cosmetics, plastic surgery) instead of character * Corporate corruption and greed (e.g., Enron, Adelphia) instead of integrity * Materialism (e.g., advertising, fashion, electronics) instead of meaning * Childhood obesity (e.g., fast food, soft drinks, candy) instead of health * Pressure to win in youth sports (e.g., over-involved parents, traveling teams) instead of fun.
Popular culture used to reflect the values of America. Now it has become a voracious beast of materialism, celebrity and excess that shapes those values to meet its own greedy needs. Popular culture can no longer be trusted to act in your childrens best interests and communicate healthy, life-affirming values.
With the information and tools you learn from Your Children Are Under Attack, you will again have the power to protect your children from American popular culture and ensure that your children grow up to become positive, strong, safe and caring people.
