Willow Smith’s latest song release deals with some pretty mature subject matter for a 12-year old girl. The song is called “Summer Fling” and it is in conjunction with a new collaborative effort with DJ MVSIC; the pairing is called Melodic Chaotic.

In the song Smith sings about boyfriends, midnight walks and love. Some are saying that Willow has not developed enough to even be thinking about such topics, let alone singing about them as if she’s actually experiencing them herself.

One human behavioral expert, Patrick Wanis, had these thoughts about the song, “ Willow is singing about having $ex and this is totally inappropriate and not in line with the developmental physical, mental or emotional stages of a 12 year old girl who is barely an adolescent; the video reveals that she is still a little girl – not a teenager. She is not mature enough mentally or emotionally to be boasting that she and her ‘fling’ are walking ‘the beach at midnight.”

Songs of this type are par for the course for the majority of young starlet singers and it concerns me that these kinds of messages are getting out to our young girls at such an early age. These messages fill our young ladies heads with ideas that are far too heavy for them to comprehend. I also believe that it depends on how the parents educate their children in addition to the outside forces present in today’s media.

Wanis also critiqued Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s parenting ability, “Her parents are being irresponsible and verging on negligent by failing to fulfill their role as parents – to guide their daughter and set boundaries and limits for her. While children might rebel, they actually need boundaries, discipline, guidance and wisdom. And the Smiths are obviously not doing that.”

What do you think of the song? Just another bubble gum tween hit or too mature for the intended audience?
