The Sexualization of Our Young Girls

The Sexualization of Our Young Girls

Recently, I read article online about little girls receiving pedicures as young as six years old. Mattel is due to release the new Black Canary Barbie, a.k.a. Hooker Barbie in September. And the Mommy blogger sites lit up with commentary on this subject of the Sexualization of Our Young Girls. Most of them crying "Enough is enough!" What are we teaching our girls? What is the key to positive healthy body image and self-esteem for girls and teens? What's your opinion?

My Special guests: Elizabeth Atkins, Anthony Reeves, Esq. and Christine Lowe-Woolard joined me on The Recipe Box and shared their thoughts. I was entertaining and insightful. You can listen to the program @ The Recipe Box hosted by Barbara Howard
