I was completely shocked and appalled by the prices. I was also completely disgusted that parents would throw money away on such frivolous items, especially when so many people are suffering in this struggling economy. I can just think of so many other uses for such decadence, even if they have money to burn.
Spend it on their perfect prep school, their college fund, sign them up for cool activities, have the children pick a charity to donate the money to, buy school supplies for their school or a struggling school, just don't light a match to that money (aka buying babies and little kids couture!).
The article goes on to say " children should be children and not little brand ambassadors or, in the current parlance, “prostitots.” She said: “I can’t bear advertising on children. And why would a child need to have anything remotely sexy? To me, it’s unethical.”
I couldn't agree more!
Such an article made me think of yet another current controversial topic...this...
It seems like parents are exploiting their children more and more. Such topics also make me think of this famous family
Are kids just the new accessory? ::gag:: Not to this girl.
