Here’s a moral conundrum. You’re driving in the car with your two daughters and one son. They want you to put the pop station on the radio, so you do. Beyonce’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” comes on the radio. The kids go nuts and start dancing and singing.
But, your son starts saying he’s a “Single Lady.” As a parent do you explain to him that he isn’t or do you let him just sing the song? One parent was faced with that decision and the results are pretty funny. Check it out above.
This video poses a bigger question though. Chances are none of the kids truly understood what the song stands for – they just think it’s a catchy tune and it surely is. But should you let them just enjoy it or try to explain to them that it’s about a woman who is giving a man an ultimatum to marry her? Or should you let your son just play within femininity for a while?
Parents, I leave this discussion up to you.
