Thus, the hashtag #BadChildrensBooks was created for people to share the various products and children?s books that are not age-appropriate. Other materials and products like TV shows, music albums, games and toys were also featured on the hashtag to serve as a warning to adults that they should mind what their young ones are engaged in. Some users also took the opportunity to give "examples" of book titles that would make awful books for kids. badchildrensbooks1 The hashtag #BadChildrensBooks were filled with links and photos, showing books, magazines and reading items that contained profanity, sex-related content, violence, gore and other untoward incidents that children should steer clear of. Many parents also discussed how the rising number of crimes done by teenagers and children today can be rooted from their early exposure to such inappropriate materials. badchildrensbooks2a badchildrensbooks2b Social media users tweeted about the several negative effects that improper children?s books can lead to such as early alcoholism, crimes, teenage pregnancy, severe mental conditions and broken relationships.
