We are all cautious about our children growing up to fast and hope to have them maintain their youth in this fast-paced, rated ‘R’ world! At age 7, all a kid should be worried about is barbies, playing with friends, and candy… not trying to figure out if their cleavage is going to look “appealing enough”.
The aid to this agony is Abercrombie and Fitch. The company has just released a children’s swimwear line – highlighting the triangle push-up bikini! Nymag.com says that back in 2002 A&F was criticized for a line of thongs they released for 7 yr. olds which had suggestive remarks on the front of them. I have a feeling A&F is not concerned with whats “politically correct”, but rather the company….period.
So, what are you thoughts ::SM:: Subscribers?
I think the one thing we have to remember is that the KIDS aren’t the ones who are going to be cutting the check to buy these bathing suits. Definitely don’t think any 2nd graders are pulling in A&F kind of money! Which means – PARENTS are the ones who need to be aware of what they are buying for their children. It will be your responsibility to just say… NO! Let your child grow up naturally. There are already so many other factors, socially and in the media, that are causing your child to be exposed too soon.
Be aware and know you are gorgeous just the way you are….. greatness already happening!
