iv slowly realized that over the years, innocence is lost earlier and earlier. you know, like hearing bout twelvies and sh*t. hearing about all these young people trying to grow up so fast! I wore my first pair of heels in the 10th grade and these days I see girls in the 7th grade wearing higher heels than me now! that's just an example.
i guess my main question is, why do people try to grow up so fast? why can't they just let life continue as it is. be 10 when your 10, not 16. there's not as much of an appreciation for childhood anymore.
do you think this is ok? is it wrong? or do you jus think that's the way the world goes...

I think kids have always wanted to be like adults, you see kids playing with baby dolls and boys pretending to be firefighters I mean kids want to be grown up. The difference today is that kids are marketed to more than ever and are sexualized at really young ages.

They are even selling lingerie to preteens as young as 7, I mean I think parents are to blame. No one should know about sex at that young of an age never mind TRY to be sexy. I think parents are being more and more hands off and let the television and the media raise their kids rather than themselves. I work at a children's theater and my co-workers and I couldn't believe that this 6 year old was wearing thigh high white go go boots and a mini skirt, she couldn't even walk she looked like a hooker. why would any parent let their kids wear that stuff? It's really beyond me. smh
