Tampa, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/08/2014 -- In recent weeks, one of the top search phrases at Google is "What is Twerking." It is hard to avoid hearing references almost daily to Miley Cyrus and her recent turn from sweet little Hannah Montana to the twerking, tongue-wagging, pot-smoking-on-stage persona she has become.
The salacious twerking dance has caught fire in some circles, confused and bewildered many parents and has even gotten itself banned at a few schools. The craze will undoubtedly go down in history as one of the most infamous trends of 2013.
What is twerking and how can parents stay informed? The team at MamaBear Family Safety App posted a blog addressing the twerking trend.
"Knowing is half the battle," said MamaBear president Robyn Spoto, a bona fide MamaBear with two curious, active boys of her own. "We chuckle about it in my parenting circles, but I’d seriously want to know the context of my kid’s twerking conversations."
