For one thing, we can listen to
them. For those of us who grew
up trying to figure out who put
the bop in the bop-shoo bop-shoo
bop" the task is not an easy one.
But, by listening to the lyrics
with our children, we can talk,
explain, share, preach — and
maybe even put them into
perspective. Who knows? If
we're real lucky, our interest
and willingness to discuss them
may even dampen our childrens'
joy in their shock value.
For another, as my son taught
me, not all the words in the
songs are to be avoided. Al-
though he was bright enough to
skip an entire grade, my offspr-
ing has absolutely no interest in
reading. Yet the music sparked
enough curiousity and motiva-
tion to cause him to add several
substantial words to his vocab-
ulary.
When I asked him about the
other, less desirable words on
his tapes, he shrugged.
"No big deal," he explained. "I
knew all of them before."
He informs me that the lyrics
"probably aren't very good for a
kid to listen to," but he adds
that they won't change the per-
son he is.
I take a different view. I sus-
pect the music will have some

effect on him. I think we are all
changed and molded by the
popular culture around us. On
the other hand, there is nothing
more sadistic than Hansel and
Gretel or Jack and the Beanstalk
and he survived those. So did
we.
In September, our son sur-
prised us by appearing at the
breakfast table before the first
half-day of school with the back
and sides of his head shaved to
the scalp. The hair remaining
atop his head stood straight up.
(His older sister claimed he
looked far more like Bert, Er-
nie's Sesame Street buddy, than
the punker he wished to be!) I
could have blamed his "evil" re-
cords and destroyed them in a
fit of temper. Reacting as any
parent would, I did allow myself
an outburst — long and loud.
But I never attacked the tapes
and records.
I realized that under that
ugly, stubbly scalp was the
same young man who had just
visited his aged grandmother,
newly placed in a nursing home,
tenderly patting her hand as she
cried softly. It is the same child
who never forgets a birthday or
anniversary, who is the first to
call when someone is sick. The
same child who bothers to pick
