The Mother feels the medial pushes being a girl too much by pushing dolls, lip gloss, high heels, etc. not tweens but more the 2's, 3's, & 4's etc. & they want to copy & imitate. The come back was it's up to the parents to be able to raise the child and let the child not be too girly too young too young, etc. not the medial. She has actually written a book on the subject, what are your thoughts on this?

I control how much media my kids have access to. How is it the media's fault?

What a non issue, for the general population, IMO. The Today's Show needs to get a list of the people who participate in those Kiddie beauty pageants-that whole circuit should be eliminated, IMO. Those parents could use some parenting classes and counseling. The other night I wondered upon one of those shows. Oh my, the parents (yes, dads too) appeared far more invested than the girls (Cha- ching). Interesting, of all the moms that I saw, every.single.one looked to be about 50lbs overweight. Vicarious living? Wishful thinking?

IDK. We as parents allow / indulge our children in certain things. I don't think there is anything wrong with letting a little girl pretend to be a fairy or a princess. My DD will put on a princess dress, her fake high heals and throw a nerf bazooka over her shoulder to go play with her brother. She has never been under the impression that she is an actual princess or that she gets everything she wants. It's pretend play. What's the difference if she is a princess in a castle or pretending to be a mom while playing house? She likes princess movies but she doesn't actually pretend to be any particular princess (Disney variety for instance). She just likes pretty sparkly dresses. And toy guns.
