Sexual products for kids?
I’ve been called a conservative parent before, and at the time I was shocked – and a little annoyed because it didn’t seem to be very complimentary – but when I see things like this I’m glad I am conservative!
Bratz dolls (or as DH and I call them “Slutz dolls”) are not welcome in our home, ever. I don’t care how popular they are. Barbie isn’t welcomed with open arms either – especially when dressed provocatively. And we’ve been known to ruthlessly cull gifts given to our kids – even after they’ve been seen.
While I have any say in our daughter’s clothing there’ll be no miniskirts, midriff tops or padded bras (and the fact that thongs even come in children’s sizes makes me want to vomit).
Do people really buy their kids toy strippers poles complete with garter and fake cash?
I hope my daughter manages to get a good way through her childhood without feeling like she needs thongs, push-up bras and makeup. I hope she likes herself exactly as she is. And I hope more of the stores that sell mini strippers poles spontaneously combust 😉
