I don’t know why it has become all the rage to dress children like prostatots. Whatever happened to poofy dresses and Shirley Temple curls? Now we put our infants in come f@*! me pumps as soon as they take their first steps. (pictured here) It’s really not cute. I don’t know much about Liz Hurley, but I’m sure she never intended to start controversy. My 4 and 5 year old love to wear bikini’s, but that’s because they saw that their 15 year old sister was just recently allowed to purchase one. I’m sure they heard all the arguments over this issue before I finally caved and that is why they too, think bikini’s are “cool”. Now. With that said, understand that I am not sending my children out of my house to a public pool in a bikini. They swim in the backyard, where I am the only prying eyes to watch them. I will also point out that I was not the one to purchase these baby bikini’s, that would have been GRANDMA, and that’s a whole separate post.
It would be great to believe that we live in a world where we can dress our children anyway we want to and not subject them to predators but let’s face parents, THEY ARE OUT THERE. Yes, we want to believe that outfits like this are innocent, and to us they are, but the to average pervert it is enticing. And the average pervert doesn’t wear a sign alerting you to their presence. So what are we to do? Dress our children appropriately and not allow even a moment to slip by us that leaves our child vulnerable. They don’t fully understand different styles of clothing, but we do. So put your foot down. And protect them. At all times. Raise them Real and Raise them safe folks!!!
