  • Sad because in the rush to make them Jr models, the real and important tasks of growth, development and imagination are lost/forgotten/stifled. Ick to sexualized little girls-

  • I agree completely! It annoys me trying to shop for my 7 yr old dd. Why do all the shorts barely cover the butt and most other stuff is way too hoochie? I want my little girl to look like a little girl!

  • I agree totally. Little girls may want to be like their mom, but as parents, it's up to us to draw the line.
