Do some “adults” treat their children as little Dolls – Toys to be played with?

There aren’t too many comments to make about this one.  Not many that are printable really.

How wonderful to teach such a young girl that she needs to get approval for being “beautiful” – within a very very narrow definition of that term.   And the girl’s mother says it is helping her self esteem by entering the “beauty” contests.   Self esteem shouldn’t be dependent upon “feeling beautiful”.   And who on earth defined that look as Beautiful anyway?????

Say no more.
