Moms Talk is a weekly feature on Wyandotte Patch intended to reach out to the parents within the community.
Each week, Moms Talk will feature a topic for discussion. You can ask questions, provide your opinion and even answer questions of other parents. We hope to spark open discussions about current issues confronting Wyandotte parents. And don't let the title fool you–dads, grandparents and caregivers are welcome to chime in, too!
This week's topic is Bieber Fever: Do your kids have it? How do you deal with it? Where do you draw the line?
There were the Beatles. David Cassidy. The Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync. The Jonas Brothers. But lately, the apple of teen and preteen girls' eyes is 16-year-old Justin Bieber.
The Canadian-born pop star has two platinum records, his own movie and millions of screaming, crazed fans. Is your child one of them? We want to hear how you handle it. Scheduled Bieber-free time, concerts or no concerts, Never Say Never on opening day, earplugs–whatever it takes to deal with and/or treat your child's Bieber Fever.
With all of the teen stars making news for drug and/or substance abuse problems, perhaps Justin is the kind of role model you want your kids looking up to? Successful. Dedicated. Rich as can be.
And, in case you missed the breaking news posted worldwide on Monday, he's ditched his recognizable hair and gone with a shorter style. I wonder how many boys who have tried to emulate his girl-frenzy look have already headed to their local barber for a quick cut.
