Growing up too early.
Adult themes such as rape, murder, alcoholism and prostitution were being broadcast before the watershed, while reality TV show Britain's Got Talent aired a performance of a song featuring explicit lyrics, according to Amanda Hulme, head of Claypool Primary School in Bolton.
In a speech to the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) annual conference in Birmingham, she said she was genuinely concerned that childhood was being cut short, with children forced to grow up too quickly.
In the last 12 months, completely inappropriateadult themes have been shown on TV before the 9pm watershed which no person with an ounce of moralitywould want their child to see, she said.
Proposing a resolution at the conference, Ms Hulme said: I am genuinely concerned that our children are growing up too quickly and that for many, childhood is being cut short."
