Is today's music bad for kids?
Today's parents are worried. Their children and their iPods are inseparable. Whetever they go, teenagers listen to music of their iPods. The problem is not the iPods but the kinds of music teenagers listen to. Most teenagers are into rap and other kinds of hip-hop music. Why is this a problem? Listen to the lyrics of many rap songs. They're often about drugs, sex, and violence.
But does music influence young people's behavior? For example, do teenagers who listen to rap songs about violence become violent? Do those who listen to rock, heavy meatal, and rap become drug users?
There are many different opinions. Some say singers and their songs affect the behavior of young people. They say thast music with violent lyrics is the reason some young people commit crimes, and some teenagers do drugs because their favorite singers do the same thing. The singers say it is ridiculous to blame them and their songs for what teenagers choose to do. They say it is the responsibility of parents to raise their kids well. Singers are not babysitters. In one of his raps, Eminem asks, "Where were the parents at?" In other words, Eminem is blaming the parents, not the singers or their songs, when kids go wrong.
The debate continues. What about you? Do you think today's music is bad for you?
