My sister Anna and her husband Jacob have four young children, all daughters whom they are trying to raise to value their own dignity and face the world with self-esteem and confidence.
This, they have discovered, is becoming a full time job, since today’s culture seems bent on actively hindering their efforts at cultivating these virtues in their girls.
If that sounds like a sensationalist spin on the challenges of parenting today, consider this example. While driving her eldest daughter Lucia home from her first piano lesson one afternoon, Anna stops at a red light on a busy intersection in Melbourne.
As the car stands stationary, Anna notices Lucia quietly observing something outside her window. Following her gaze Anna sees, to her utter dismay, a large advertisement on the corner building depicting a pornographic scene
This is not an isolated incident but an indication of the permissiveness of our culture, a virtue championed only by secularist fundamentalists. More than that, permissiveness breeds apathy towards the task of nurturing a future generation with strong characters and moral integrity. This endeavour is often rejected as fostering intolerance and small-mindedness, but that too, I consider unapologetically as blatant idiocy, and the scapegoat through which one may shirk this duty.
Good moral values and virtues can take many years to establish in a person. Exposing children to the type of visual message in question here is like euthanizing their purity of imagination and innocence of childhood. Discernment is not something with which someone is born. And the onus to protect young people from visual pollution is not only on parents, but on us all.
