In an article published by Focus on the Family, they report that kids may be getting too sexy, way too young.
The report stated that American girls are increasingly being fed products and images that pressure them to be sexy. While parents are trying to promote purity in their daughters; images from clothing to cartoons, choreography to commercials, emphasize on sexuality.
The American Psychological Association (APA) warns that this sexualization of girls is harmful to their self-image and healthy development. “[Girls are] experiencing teen pressures at younger and younger ages. However, they are not able to deal with these issues because their cognitive development is out of sync with their social, emotional and sexual development,” the APA reported.
