MTV Has Changed June 9, 2011

One of my favorite shows on MTV was “My Super Sweet Sixteen.” It was about a bunch of rich teenagers throwing the “best” party their city has ever seen and showcasing it to other teenagers who wish they could have that type of party…. They could if they had the money. Unfortunately, I was never able to have a huge party for my 16th birthday and that is why I loved watching that show. My family wasn’tt lucky enough to have tons and tons of money. (I did still have a great 16th birthday) BUT…… How did MTV go from the innocent “My Super Sweet Sixteen” to¬†“Sixteen and Pregnant”?! The audience age has not changed but the shows and the maturity level of the shows have. I’m not saying that it isn’t a good show because for some reason I am drawn to them and think the stories are interesting. But maybe I am the only one thinking that…. Comments, answers? What do you think?

My mom used to read me tons of stories when I was younger. My favorite story, to this day is The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn. It’s about a mother raccoon and a baby raccoon and how much the mom loves the baby. My second favorite childhood¬†book is The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. This book is about how a tree loved a little boy so much that she gave everything she had and was content with the boy taking everything because he appreciated her. What are your favorite childhood books?
