HOOK - Story about how when I was a child we were not allowed to listen to such explicit music like the children are allowed to in this day and age.
BIG IDEA – The music that this generation is listening to is crippling their potential.
Some of the rappers that the kids listen to. Every last one of them using bad language, and perpetuates a lifestyle that young kids need not listen to.
No ones child is going to stay innocent but how bout we just try and keep them as innocent as we can.
What’s in it for the audience – If we intervene and stop the negative influence that some of this music has on the kids, we can take back the youth, thusly taking back our future.
CREDIBILITY – I have seen the influence that certain music has on the kids within my family and friends.
Kids learn how to behave.
CALL TO ADVENTURE – You can show your kids the morals they need by not allowing them access to demoralizing songs.
The kids are our future so it is our duties as parents, uncles, aunt, older brother, older sister, and teacher to show them the right things to do our their futures will be dim.
3 MAIN POINTS – 1. Shut down that influence on their lives. 2. Keep your child a child. 3. Stop the mentality that the street life is the only way of life.
SUPPORT 1 – A lot of music has fowl words and notions of lewd acts in them that kids imitate and think it is cool to do.
SUPPORT 2 – if your child does something trying to imitate something they heard in a song they could face some adult consequences.
Pregnacny statistic: http://www.cdc.gov/teenpregnancy/aboutteenpreg.htm According to the center for disease control and prevention in 2011 329, 797 babies were born to women aged 15-19 years of age.
SUPPORT 3 – a lot of men and women are in jail for doing some of the music in rap songs.
Jail statistic. According to (http://filipspagnoli.wordpress.com/stats-on-human-rights/statistics-on-freedom/statistics-on-prisoner-population-rates/) there are 100,000 people in jail in America.
CALL FOR ACTION – Stop your kids from listening to the influential music and you instead install the morals that will help them be a better productive person.
RESTATE THE MAIN POINTS – Eliminating the foul and demoralizing music out of your child’s life will delete a negative input out of their lives. This will keep your child innocent. And will keep them out of trouble and able to fulfill their dreams.
RESTATE BIG IDEA – The music this generation is listening to is crippling their potential.
We need to take responsibility in our children’s lives and show them how they are supposed to act and behave!
CLINCHER – in the long run your kids will know right from wrong and they will know how to act. And you can sit back in your old age knowing you did right by your kids.
