So, my daughter is innocent and kind so how did she hear the word slut?

I have to confess, I watch a lot of the Real Housewives garbage as a way to chill outand veg. My kid is usually never in hearing range or she is asleep or playing with a friend. I think the other day she was around for a bit because my mom and I were watching it when she was visiting. I told my daughter today that slut was a very bad word and she said that she didn’t know that. I think that she thought it was akin to jerk, which isn’t nice, but isn’t a forbidden word. She referred to the trash guy as a slut for spilling litter everywhere. I almost lost it when she said it. I was super shocked.

I was appalled, but quickly realized that the show I watch is not Godly, just like the music that she wants to hear I have to change the station on is too risqué. All of these little worldly things sneak in and get into our spirit. It is like we become so desensitized to it because we are so used to all of the garbage. My daughter said she doesn’t know where she heard it, and if I protect her as much as I do and she knows some unpleasant words, think about kids who don’t have parents that set parameters.

It saddens me how fast these kids are growing up and though I can’t protect her from the vile stuff forever, I will keep her young as long as I can. She still believes in Santa and still plays with dolls, but she goes to rehearsal and hears the words sexual harassment from another kid.

We as adults have many years to be exposed to this junk, so I think kids should get to be kids as long as they possibly can. Well, these are just my thoughts. Do you all feel like filth is everywhere, or am I just getting old?
