To me it isn't right, kind of encroaching in the
territory of youth..
We don't have this in our country;
the nearest we would have is,
traditional Irish Dancers, one time
they danced with short green pleated skirts, white blouses, white ankle socks, naturally flowing long hair.
and black patent shoes..
Now,
that has changed in this age
to the most elaborate dresses,
which cost the earth,
make up applied,
wigs of masses of curls,
have replaced the more natural loose hair..
and each mother, in dressing her girl,
tries to outdo the rest.
How is it they cannot leave things alone.
I have a problem big time with the LittleMiss sunshine where those kids look like adults. I cannot even watch it on tv, makes my blood turns in my veins. And I believe that the mothers should be punished some how. Agreed with you they definitely using their child to realize their dream. It should be some kind of movement against that.

It's really a form of child abuse.

It's. They programmed these kids at the earliest age. I saw some of them crying, don't want to do it. But they are brain fried.6 years old, doing it since they are maybe 2/3 years old. I cannot even express the way I feel. Something like ^%$%$#&&*())$!!!
Let the kid being a kid.

What scares me,is the kids enjoy doing this,and with the parents encouragement,there's no place to draw a line.I personally would make sure if they do this type of exhibition,it shouldn't be glamourized.

I agree with you, but when I was growing up, we did stuff like dress up like girls, and do some "gyrating", and we turned out ok(I think),but an interesting thing happened one time we did that. A guy driving a car really thought we were girls_we did have our sisters clothes, and even a wig,and that guy whistled at us, and then we felt what it's like when this happens to girls now-a -days.It was kind of scary, being around 10 years old at that time.

Exactly. Kids want their parents' approval, they crave praise and love and will do lots of things to obtain that. They don't understand that some actions are simply wrong for them. The effects may not show for a while, but eventually, the damage done now will come up (and a bunch of shrinks will make a lot of money or else, there'll be other consequences, i.e., prostitution, etc.). Parents should be held responsible and prevented from exposing their children to this.
