The death of 13-year-old Chevonea Kendall-Bryan has driven the debate on the sexualisation of the young to fever pitch, but what will we do about it?

Via Mishka's Life
Beverley Glazer's insight:

Unless kids are watching the shopping channel this is the reality. It's not only porn, it's everywhere. Kids are surrounded by sexuality and consider it the norm. Is it harder to be a parent today? How can we prevent the hyper-sexualization of kids.

Mishka's Life's curator insight, January 28, 2013 5:41 PM

This issue of children, their access to hardcore pornography and it's effects is so important to be aware of.  Let's not be blind to the clture our children are growing up in.

Laura Brown's comment, January 28, 2013 11:35 PM
It's not just hardcore porn. What TV show does not show people having sex at the drop of a hat? Unless kids are watching the Food Network, they are exposed to sex and the feeling that everyone does it and there is something wrong with you if you haven't had sex within the past week. That is not reality, but that is what we and our children/ teenagers see.

More to add to the methadone controversy

Anna Deeds, LPC's curator insight, December 30, 2012 6:39 PM

Methadone is ineffective because most clinics don't offer much treatment. Seeing a counselor once or twice a month isn't enough. Lately, there's been more interest in moving toward adding recovery treatment to methadone at least in Pennsylvania. I say its about time. I worked at Addiction Specialists, inc which is offering recovery treatment. ASI offers treatment, partial, rehab and group therapy. More clinics need to follow their example.  Methadone clients need more counseling and group therapy. The drug alone only stops withdrawal. It doesn't stop the obsession or urge to get high. It doesn't change your environment.
