My High School Musical Nightmare

Now, even preschoolers are enthralled with High School Musical--and this story hits awfully close to home for momlogic's Julie.

Julie writes: Today, CNN is reporting that many preschoolers are enthralled with High School Musical. Sadly, I can relate.

The other day when I dropped my 3-year-old daughter off at preschool, the teacher pulled me aside to tell me a doozy. Apparently yesterday, after her nap, Seena went over to a little boy and wistfully said, "Jack, I was thinking about you all during naptime."

Now, isn't 3 years old a little young to start obsessing about a boy during naptime? Yet, she is most definitely obsessing. And she's three. Did I mention that she's three?! This is the same girl who was reprimanded last week for playing her own version of the High School Musical game at school. She would go up to a boy, then say: "You be Troy, and I'll be Gabriella." (Not a great time to be Gabriella, really, what with the naked pics surfacing and all, but I'm relieved she doesn't surf the Internet yet.)

When the teacher told Seena this High School Musical game just wasn't appropriate, Seena said, "Hmph. Troy and I would like to be alone." Miss Rosalie, undeterred, said: "Seena, you need to come play with the other students." Seena looked her straight in the eye and said, "I'm not SEE-NA, I'm GAB-RI-ELLA!" and then stomped off to the corner in a huff.

WTF? Where is this coming from? Sure, I've let her watch High School Musical and High School Musical 2 a couple dozen times, but it's not like I'm showing her porn. Or is High School Musical like porn for little girls? And is that why Gabriella is now doing amateur porn? Hmm. Food for thought.

For now, I'm replacing High School Musical with Playhouse Disney at our house. I'll still let her play with the Troy and Gabriella Barbies, because, well, she just loves them so much and it seems cruel to take them from her. I love that's she so unique, such a character, and I don't want to strip this quality away. (Cue the HSM song "Stick to the Status Quo.") Yet, I don't want her telling the teacher she wants to be alone with Troy, either. So, for now, we're trying to strike some balance. The start of something new.

IMO, it’s like porn for little girls. I’d stick with PBS.

Maybe it’s all the places you drag her around to that should be adults-only. We’ve already established how you condone bringing kids along EVERYWHERE you go.

What your daughter is going through is normal. When my daughter was in kindergarten, the teacher took me aside to tell me she was kissing all the boys which had to stop. This shocked me because she was so shy! Today, she’s a perfectly well adjusted, well mannered 12 year old girl with normal crushes. Don’t worry about Sena!

Whatever, Breah. You’re probably one of those “moms” who let your fruit run around in public singing all the HSM songs off-key while you glance around to make sure everyone is paying attention. It’s annoying. All copies of High School Musical should be snatched from the hands of the annoying children and burned in a huge bonfire as the kids wail in despair.

I have a 19 month old who goes to preschool 2 days a week and on the first day she became friends with a boy and shortly after she kissed him on the mouth!! I think it’s normal. I think kids repeat everything they see and some like to be more dramatic about, perhaps you should consider acting lessons and encourage her!

Wait! That porn pic of Vanessa Hudgens was not Vanessa in it, i think that was just a look alike of Vanessa who wants to be the next Gabriela of HSM. A friend of mine told me that it is just similar to the philippine controversy of a certain filipina actress in a porn video, but it wasn’t the filipina actress in the video actually, it was a look-alike again(i think the nationality of the lookalike is japanese or chinese but the lookalike is still asian)
