3 out of 4 parents try to stop children watching ‘lewd’ music videos

Eighty-two per cent of parents say that children have repeated sexual lyrics without knowing their meaning, research from Netmums has found.

The research of 1,500 website members found that three quarters have tried to stop their children watching music video because of the content.

It was also found that 75 per cent of parents with daughters said very sexual pop acts were teaching girls they would be "judged on their looks, not their achievements or personality", while two thirds said they thought young female singers were being exploited.

The poll came following Miley Cyrus twerking at the VMAs.
