    On my way back home from the station I saw a girl who was probably picked up by her mum from school waiting for a traffic light.
    The girl, about 6 or 7 I bet, was not only quite skinny, but she also wore a little brown t shirt which read 'Sex Trainee' with the number 69 below.

    I looked twice.

    It wasn't a mirage :eek:

    Now I'm not exactly prudish or old-fashioned when it comes to these things, but keep in mind the girl was not older than 7.

    Mum, what the ♥♥♥♥?

    That's nothing short of disgusting. The mother ought to feel very ashamed, and the clothing company for that matter too.

    I have no stories to share along those lines. The worst I have seen was a 4 year old who came to my class every week with new nail varnish on - I thought that was kind of silly, but definately not a crime, just a bit of fun.

    That is unforgivable.
    I went to a Little Athletics meet with my kids, and one of the 8 year olds had her team shirt cut off so it looked like a croptop and had tight almost hotpants style shorts. I thought that was awful. All the other 8 year olds had baggy running shorts and big tops......

    That's quite disturbing. I wouldn't be surprised if the child didn't even understand what she was wearing, which to me, makes it much worse.

    One thing that annoys me, which is slightly off topic-ish, is the catalogues you'll find with pre-teens in their underwear, bikini's, etc. I have a catalogue here, and when it got to that section, I felt like I was looking at a porno mag :/ Not that I know what one would look like, but I assume there are similarities...

    Last week I saw a girl around 6 years old (it's hard to tell), with her trousers falling off her butt... I just felt so embarrassed for her, even if she didn't. :S I'm not sure about the rest of you, but just 10 years ago, it wasn't really like this. Mind you, it depends on the areas you live in too. But over here I actually felt that people dressed quite decent, but it seems to have changed quite rapidly over the last several years. I just think about all those perverts that could be looking at these little girls... It grosses me out.

    At a previous isketch meet we had a fancy dress party and a good friend of mine wore a sexy french maid's outfit complete with garter. The friend was very petite and when we commented on her sexy costume she told us she bought it in the children's department in Woolies :eek:

    I work in our infant school a lot and helped out at the last disco. Many of the girls of 6 and 7 were (IMO) dressed like mini hookers. Tight lil minimini skirts(knickers hanging out) and tiny lil tops like boob tubes and lots of the boys at the drinks counter saying "ill get your drink for you darling" It was so sad to see lots of very young children not acting like kids but like mini adults. I am often accused by my kids of being too strict with them but I refuse to let thir childhoods go zooming past and they become little adults before they even 10!

    I remember when all make-up was to a 6 year old was Little Blossom from Avon. I know, cause I got it for years :D
    Now, it's like grown-up make up, what's with that?

    I can also remember when all this started about 8 or 9 years ago. I was living in East London at the time and I remember the girls turning up for Sunday School and Rainbows/Brownies in clothes that were mini-adult-slutish. It was only mild then and it's grown into the fashion for kids today. I dissagree totally with it. I think it's setting the wrong example to kids. That's another thing, kids learn from example...I don't think I need to explain that any more.

    But yes, it disturbs me rather alot :eek:

    I don't think I'll have this problem with mine until she's much older... if at all. I quote: 'I'm not wearing a skirt; skirts are for geeks'. It's not really surprising that little girls think it's alright to dress that way if mum doesn't say 'You're not wearing that', and indeed, dresses that way herself. Some people have no self-respect anymore; a lot of towns on a Friday are now like a butcher's shop window.

    It's not all about blaming the parents, some children are very willful. However, in the case Nay mentions, that's definitely the parent to blame... that child can't possibly know what that t-shirt means. Absolutely disgusting. It's almost like advertising your child to the type of people who would find that attractive. Makes me feel very sad. I've seen little kids dressed up like streetwalkers too... is it just like playing dress-up? Or is it more sinister? I once saw a baby under a year wearing gold hoop earrings and a 'clown' necklace... *shudder*.

    Reminds me of those awful kid's beauty pageants where they put make-up and earrings on infants... awful. Children are beautiful as they are. If they're taught they need make-up to be pretty, that can only lead to low self-esteem when they are adults.

    What really bugs me are those low cut jeans. You know the ones where the waist line is VERY low down. You don't want to see that on a ten year old.
    Twenty year old yes, ten year old no.

    mmmmmmmmm i just have to add to this my daughter is only 7 but she needs to wear aged 10 - 11 clothes as she is very tall,the problem is that 11 year old girls wear there jeans low down,so my daughter has low cut jeans cos the manufacuters dont make jeans for kids they make em for mini adults.

    needless to say my daughter wears very long tops with her jeans ,. and no slash tops or slash bikinis..

    I thought this was a bit unbelievable to, on thursday my daughter goes to swimming lessons,and we were waiting outside the changing room with a group of smaller girls no older than 5 one of the girls kept shouting to her friend that she wanted to show her new towel was a playboy towel, pink with a white playboy logo on it. i was shocked this child shouldnt even know what playboy is let alone have a beach towel of it......

    They probably thought it was just a rabbit. I hate that it seems that parents don't seem to realize how bad their children look. Especially when the children are even a little bit pudgy, and the parents let their daughters wear bikinis. It's bad enough that obese women have to wear them....

    A child who is a bit 'pudgy' should be allowed to wear a bikini without being judged for their physical appearance. They shouldn't be worried about YOUR prejudices about weight. They're children and should be allowed to be... I hope you're a top beauty model whoyou... if you're standing in judgment of others' physical appearance... you'd best be perfect in every way yourself eh? Just in case someone decides to judge you the same way...

    Hmmm... a little below the belt :sad: There is so much pressure on children already. So what if they are a little chubby? They are kids!!

    Kay, sorry. That was totally inappropriate of me. And I actually really regret saying that. I shouldn't be talking, because I'm not fit myself. If you do want to bash me, just PM me. I think kids should be kids, and shouldn't have to worry about their size until later in life when they realize how the world doesn't always like you for who you are on the outside, because the world is cruel that way.

    i think what Cara meant was that some skimpy bikinis are extremely disgusting. whether the female is in shape or not.

    i personally think it's disgusting how some of the girls act. i mean.. in the animal world, isn't it the males that have to look good for the woman and fight for the woman? like.. the peacock males get the cool plumage, etc etc. why do human females feel as if they need to dress like sluts to get attention from males? and incidentally, they DO get attention from the males since all the guys are so horny. :p

    Whew, thanks for saving my butt there Gracie. But that IS what I was gonna get to eventually. It's unfair that the girls that get most of the attention are the ones who act and dress a certain way, and not the girls that are intelligent and have amazing personalities, even if they aren't always appealing visually (like me, perhaps..)
