Can I get a AMEN?! I’ve had to deal with this ridiculousness almost on a daily basis. Having two young impressionable girl children. They hound me constantly with requests for this “toy” or that “toy” that they’ve seen on a T.V. commercial. And before you get on my case about not letting them watch television, they only watch MAYBE, at most, and not everyday, an hour. On the weekends it is sometimes a different case but I do ATTEMPT to limit their viewing time because this is what they see:
And you know what, it isn’t just the “toys” that are hoochifying our girls. I was shopping with the family last weekend in a popular clothing store Limited Too and the style of clothes are exact replicas of what I see in ADULT woman’s clothing stores. Just because you make it in a child’s size 6, 7, 8, 9 doesn’t mean that it is appropriate for them to be wearing!!!!
Our children need to be children. They don’t need to be turned into sexual objects at 7 or 8 or 9 or 10 years old – or even 11, 12, a 13.
I’m getting off my soap box for the moment. Now go read this and maybe together we can figure out how to tell the people in charge to STOP MAKING SHIT like this for our CHILDREN.
Thanks for listening (or reading, if you must be technical),
