    I'm looking at Maury, where a 12-year-old (who got pregant at 11) is figuring out who her child's father was. The BOY in question was 13, who turned out not to be the father!

    The children, (who admit to still having sex), said they started messing around in fifth grade! Can you believe that fifth grade?!

    This is the craziest thing I've ever heard. How is a child who isn't even old enough to drive allowed to run and around and have sex? I can't even IMAGINE what I would do if I had a daughter that got pregnant at that age.

    Parents have GOT to do better by their kids... this is one of the reasons why the family structure for some in the black community is failing. And we need to start caring out about the future of our kids BEFORE we are even in the position to be able to conceive. Women need to only get pregant with men who will love and commit to them (which would help ensure a father will be in the home with their kids), and men need to use condomns.

    And when the kids get here, the parents need to establish EARLY who's in control. They also need to keep an eye on them... a 10 year-old shouldn't even be out by themselves to have the opportunity to have sex. Better yet, the kid shouldn't even have those types of thoughts at that age.

    Yes I agree that a 10 year old shouldn't have those thoughts..but look at what's going on ..on tv...women shaking their booties all over the tv screen men all grinding on the women. Yes parents need to keep a better eye on their kids..when I was 10..sexuality wasnt all over the tv screen. Coming up..no music videos,no looking at girls in bikinis..no rap music..not even PRINCE...so I was fortunate..but yes our children are getting "fassa" by the year..

    Exactly! Kids should be supervised when watching television, on the Internet, etc. Seeing sexuality too young hurts a young mind.

    i would like to see all children imbued with the love of knowledge and learning.

    i don't know how to give this to a child but i think it's important.
    learning involves a certain open minded attitude and the willingness to humble oneself in front of a great teacher.

    i have spent my life seeking greater knowledge and i still do seek it.
    i love it. :read:

    Right it rapes the child's "mental virginity" which then progresses to early raping of the child's "physical virginity"...What goes in the mind manifests in action. We need to protest about what is going on on tv...SEX IS EVERYWHERE...Sex Sells yes...so I guess America would rather have financial wealth..then see children maintain their innocence..esp amongs black children..I'm not suprised..America's Priorities are mixed up. Black kids are..not in all situations however latchkey kids,single parent homes..momma trying to keep food on the table..or both parents might not have gained a proper education where they could work decent hours instead of working 2-3 jobs just to keep shelter,food,clothes,etc,because more and more cuts are being made to prevent Blacks from having a slight chance to get into school,or the parents might have been playing around instead of studying,the job market is also horrible, because of the economy. So bet,mtv,showtime become the parents..and they look at that to see what's right and whats wrong.

    .....We are disregarding our children, and going to work without understanding that anything can happen to our children while they are in school. Times are getting very hard - IT AIN'T SAFE NO MORE!

    We need to stick together, and put the grudges against each other aside.

    i agree!!...Like the poking of the kids..and then there was also..an incident..someone was telling me about, that two young male children were in the bathroom giving each other oral sex. I will ask him his source and try to find the article about it, and post it here. ARGHHHHHHH. When G-D blesses me with children, I am..homeschooling..

    Maury Pobitch should be arrested for child pornography.

    He's made half of his show on parading little 9 and 10 year old girls nearly naked and portraying them in a sexually explicit manner to satisfy the pedophilia desires of much of America, and the other half on paternity results.


    The Maury Povich and Jerry Springer Shows are just trash tv like the Rikki Lake and Morton Downy Jr. before them.

    They always represent to worse of society and show all types of dysfuntional people encouraging others to behave as such.

    It's amazing to me why so many people...especially black people...come on those show making fools of themselves.

    In my opinion they should be banned.


    I also agree with Nisa because the little girls sit up and watch this crap and it gives them all type of deranged and immoral ideas and examples of what femininity and womanhood is all about.

    ..................And isn't it funny that these shows come on Basic Television? How about taking ALL the educational networks, and making them Basic television channels? Oh yeah, thats right, a brotha's voice is ignored in corporate Amerikkka, even though it is for the best.
