It all started around Halloween when my husband and I went into this Halloween store in Chicago and my husband pointed out that all the "kid" section of the store was empty and all the 12 year olds were trying on costumes in the (very) adult section. This one girl, had to be no more than 11, tried on this adult bumble bee costume. It was strapless, made out of spandex, that almost had her butt cheeks poking out the bottom, and the thing that got me was her mother was helping her pick the costume!
Then the other day I'm walking around the mall and I see a lot of little girls with their mothers (seriously age 8-13 years old) buying these padded lace bras and teeny weeny thongs and g-strings.

I don't know, I just don't think that little girls need to be "padding" their (lack of) boobs and wearing g-strings. I dunno, maybe I'm just a prude? I don't think I am. Padded bras and thongs are fine when you're older, but not when you're 10.

Am I alone on this? lol

I think young girls grow up much too soon these days. My daughter is going to be 21 this year, and I fought with her Dad (who she lived with when she was younger) about what was appropriate when she was a young teenager. He let her wear make-up way before I thought she should and she also had a date younger than we had agreed on.

I don't think you're a prude at all.... I agree that young girls are growing up way too fast these days.

But, it seems to be the way it is now and they feel "babied" if they can't do everything all their friends are doing.

I'm just glad it's over with and she's all grown up now, that's for sure!!!!! blush.gif

My old coworker has an 11 year old daughter. Her daughter asked for thongs because all the other girls in school were making fun of her for wearing "granny panties". Her mother said no and she got caught stealing a week later at LaSenza Girl.

At 11 I was too embarrassed to ask for a training bra. Oh how things have changed.

this reminds me of something my sister did aged seven whistling.gif

i think its a bit much letting girls as young as 10 or 11 and younger dress up so overtly and adult, i mean jeeze. that said though i remember being early teens and dressed in something that really i could have gotten a way with (denim shorts and tee) but i decided to wear my patforms i had just bought aswell(they were my first pair of heels) unfortunatly i was getting to the age were i was starting to look like a young woman and it wasnt looking so inoccent anymore. took one comment from the wrong person blink.gif to realise and i didnt do it again cos i was too self concious. well not till i was old enough to want to look feminie.

You're not being prudish at all....it's just wrong. Parents as consumers have got to put pressure on the clothing retailers to stop buying and selling that #######. Where are those Christian boycotters when you need them? Oh yes, they're boycotting Disney and Ford for allowing gay and lesbian employees to add their partners onto their health insurance.

I think the most ironic thing is though (regarding my family I should say), is my mom found it so wrong when i was that age for little girls to wear these types of things. When I was 12 she got pregnant with my little sister, and even then she would see the little padded bras at walmart and say something about it. Then when my sister was 11, Mom bought her a padded bra. Is there some sort of hypnosis going on in commercials that flip a switch in the parents head or something?

I think most parents just give up trying to fight the status quo. Too bad, really.

laughing.gif

sounds like my mom. "you can't get your ears pierced until you're 16" "you aren't allowed to wear trainers unless it's for sports at school" etc. my sister that was born when i was 14 had pierced ears before me, trainers when i wasn't allowed and even her own bedroom and she still is never happy. she doesn't have thongs or padded bras though, maybe that's the problem!

It seems like every generation feels that about the next. When was Lolita written? Way before the Spice Girls.

One way to combat the trend is for schools to enforce dress codes banning 'thong' underwear or 't-backs.' I think a lot of them do, at least through middle school.

You cant even find "normal" clothes in the lil girls section. They're all mini versions of adult clothes.
It quite sickening really

"you fondle my trigger then you blame my gun"

Timeline: 13 month long journey from filing to visa in hand



If you were lucky and got an approval and reunion with your loved one rather quickly; Please refrain from telling people who waited 6+ months just to get out of a service center to "chill out" or to "stop whining" It's insensitive,and unecessary. Once you walk a mile in their shoes you will understand and be heard.
Thanks!

whistling.gif its the multiple child syndrome. Every parent suffers from it, including my own and i'm sure i will too.

First Child (moi) the guinnie pig, your sure what you are really doing and your ultra para about protecting this innocent and vulnerable little person, gets sick for first time pannic stations, wants get their ears pierced at 13? no way jose, wants to go out to play in the housing estate with their friends at 8 not a chance.
cotton wool syndrome will carry on with this one the entire time they are the first to do something, including growing up going to uni and flying to another country to get married innocent.gif whistling.gif

second child: they are more laied back on certain things when they come about cos they have been there before and sort of know what to expect, but they also know what they would have done differently the last time, and thus sometimes so go too far laid back, which can come back to haunt them sometimes. such as giving in to things they said no to the first child about because maybe the fight wasnt worth the hassle or something.

third child cops it in the middle because they know what they would have done differently on first and second, this child may also blame older siblings when she/ can't do something because they learnt their lesson with one of the older ones. headbonk.gif

well thats how i observed it in my familly. yes.gif
