Remember Wonder Baby?

Well, it seems that, in at least one way, Korea truly is leading the world.

A video showing a group of 8- and 9-year-old dancers performing to Beyonce‘s “Single Ladies” has been creating controversy in the U.S. As it should.

I think the best quote came from the child psychologist, Dr. Michael Bradley, who said that “the parents were asleep at the switch, that they don’t even see what’s going on there.”

Here is the video in question. I include it only so that people can see, first-hand, for themselves, what the fuss is all about. Personally, I couldn’t watch more than ten seconds of it.

Here is the underage Miley Cyrus. As the child psychologist put it, society is giving the message that the way to be a successful female is to be a sexual creature.
