Seminar in Longview emphasizes media dangers for kids
Longview, TX — Three area Parent Teacher Associations joined forces Monday evening for a presentation on the dangers of today’s media on children, a portion of which had attendees dancing in their seats — until the lyrics were projected onto a big screen.
Spring Hill ISD Student Resource Officer Roger Askew played clips from TV shows, commercials, video games and musical performances from the 1950s to present day.
From Elvis Presley to Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj, Askew demonstrated to an adults-only crowd how music has evolved over time, bringing into acceptance the discussion of acts that once were taboo.
Some of the lyrics and video games contained graphic depictions of sex and violence.
