ok, my DD will be 9 in Feb. She is a very young and innocent girl. I have seen last year more and more of the girls in her class acting all "grown-up" ect like as if they were 14 or something!! I think this is really really sad, kids cant be kids anymore :( My DD still likes fairies, princesses and barbie. but she is ashamed to admit it to anyone. im like WTF she is only 8 years oldd!! ( all last year). Also, the clothes!!!! here in Australia they have the cute girly clothes but only from a size 1 through to size 6. from a size 7 - 14 are the teenager type clothes. my point being, DD was in a size 7 from age 6!! I refuse to dress a 6-7 year old like a teenager!!! It is sooo hard to find suitable clothing. it is all adult type stuff. I cant even get her a pair of shorts that have any leg!!! I will NOT put my little girll in short shorts!!!! Why does a little girl need to dress sexy?? and these shorts come in real little sizes!! it is sad. I guess I just hate the fact that kids are being forced younger and younger to be adult. any thoughts???
