In just a few weeks, Mattel will be releasing their latest Barbie doll. Hooker Barbie (my name for it -- I have no idea what they are calling it) comes complete with leather jacket and fishnets. You know what is sad? Some moms will actually go out and buy their daughters this Barbie. It will be all I can do not to throw up when I see that.
If your daughter is too old for Barbie, then I am sure she has seen the ads and commercials for the new series of Gossip Girl. I have never seen the television show so I am not sure what all the hype is about, but based on the ads I won't know again this season. Have you seen the new ad series? Looks like they hired the same people who designed Hooker Barbie! Considering this show is marketed for girls 12 and up... "Nasty" indeed.
Of course, I am just holding my breath and waiting because I hear that Miley Cyrus has hopes of developing a younger version of "Sex and the City". A younger "Sex and the City".... that is just what we need is a teenage version. As if Juno, The Life of an American Teenager and the other shows glamorizing teenage pregnancy isn't enough!
It is really tough being a Mom. I am doing everything I can to teach my boys to be gentlemen, act like gentlemen and treat girls like ladies.
With each and every little "reveal" like these... I just want to lock them in their rooms.
