As parents, we want our kids to have a normal childhood, enjoying the things that kids should enjoy freely and innocently. Kids should be able to enjoy the swings at the park, running through the sprinklers, and frolicking at the beach like children.
But that’s not always the case. When the hot weather starts, so do the debates on what girls should wear. There will be debate on whether young girls should be wearing short shorts, short skirts, and two-piece bathing suits.
Young girls wear clothes that are fun and weather-appropriate during warmer months. But not everyone thinks they are appropriate – even if the girls are toddlers.
Is society sexualizing our young girls?
