Virginia Euwer Wolff, the author who will teach your children about sex at age 13

The NY Post carried a story on the 18th about the newly approved literature package approved by the Department of Education and distributed among some 70 to 80 percent of the city’s approximately 500 middle schools. One of the books for 13-year olds which is being distributed as part of the Common Core curriculum is a smutty book called ‘Make Lemonade’ by Virginia Euwer Wolff.

Some principals want it gone. The Department of Education loves it. Apparently they love age-inappropriate books for early teens. We aren’t letting our children be children in areas of the country where they can be. We all have to experience the same miserable experiences of tortured children under big government controlled education.

It’s crude, it’s graphic, and they are too young says therapist Dr. Hilfer, maybe it should have come with a warning label.  Unless, of course, you think the following is A-OK:

The story is about Jolly, a babysitter, who at seventeen has two children by two different absentee fathers. She makes lemons into lemonades after she drops out of school and has two babies. Even as it ends well it depressingly shows that even in rich countries underneath the sugar-coated images of good lifestyle and beliefs of a better life, lies a dark underbelly of crumbling buildings, trashed streets, drugs, teen pregnancies and gang wars.

“Jolly is 17. She has two little kids from two absentee fathers. Jolly knows that she can’t cope with Jilly and Jeremy all by herself . . .”

[…]

“He touched me, way under my shirt — so fast I didn’t even see his hand go — he put his big old smelly mouth all over my face . . .”

“I want to do you good.”

Jolly had come home bleeding from the employer’s advances. From the way Jolly described sex and getting pregnant (twice) to LaVaughn, Jolly certainly didn’t get pregnant after dinner and a movie! She was essentially raped.

[…]

It includes this warning: “Don’t never go near that drug. It gets you pregnant faster than anything. . .”

Bit@h Media calls it a feminist book.  It certainly is a coming-of-age book but how soon does something like this get introduced. Is 13 okay for every 13-year old throughout the country?

It is simply age-inappropriate for many 13 year olds but Common Core, to which this is aligned, is a one-size fits-all, so what a kid reads in a ghetto is what a suburban school kid or a rural farmer’s child will read.

From the NY Post:

“This is what they give kids to read? You’re kidding. It’s child abuse,” said family psychologist Bonnie Eaker Weil.

“This is making [sex] dirty and disgusting and scary.”

A furious mom told me: “I’m teaching my daughter to respect herself. Not to act like his.”

The book sexualizes little children and takes parental authority away and puts it in the lab of the schools.

It’s in many ways a good book but it’s age-inappropriate and it’s being forced on the teachers and parents. That is the problem.
