What parents need to know is that most 12 yr olds are in junior high or middle school. They should already know this stuff since some kids would talk about it at school and even if your child is perfect they are still going to know what stripper is and if they don't they should know it now than later. Miley is growing up and what people need to understand is that she isn't a kid any more, she is a grown young lady. The Hannah Montana days are over and she can't sit around all day she HAS to grow up. She is expressing herself in her music and we can't tell her what and what not to say. So this song isn't for your 3 yr old but it's ok for a tween around 11 and 12.
