    Too Young, Too Sexy, Too Fast

    Did you know that we only have 18 years of our lives to be a kid? Of course you do! We are technically adults when we turn 18. After that, we have approximately 60 years to be an adult, if God allows it.

    If this is the case, then why are young girls constantly being pressured to grow up faster?

    The media plays a huge role in enticing girls to act and dress in a manner that’s far too mature for their age. Most concerning is that many of these girls often are encouraged to behave and dress sexually.

    Aren’t there enough women in the world to use these products? Now these outlets have to use or market to little girls?

    Sadly, it’s not just the media’s influence that promotes sexualizing young girls. Parents also are responsible for this epidemic. These are not just the parents who encourage their children to model in a sexual manner, but also the parents who push their girls to follow the fashions and actions presented by other young models.

    The following is a 20/20 clip titled, “Too Young to be Sexy.” It provides a fantastic account of what I’m referencing here and in my previous posts on the sexualizing of young girls.

    Honestly, I’m disturbed, appalled, and saddened by this 20/20 clip. Unfortunately, it seems that money and notoriety are too much of a temptation for the media and these parents to miss out on.

    Take a look at the following image. I found it on Amazon.com when I was searching for women’s pajamas.

    The items are described as “mother and daughter matching sweater dresses.” Are you kidding me?

    Ladies, you’re only a child for a short time in your life, and so I urge you to embrace that time and enjoy it. Don’t fall for the hype. Children in heels, makeup, piercings, tattoos, and mature fashion are being exploited. It’s as simple as that. And in a world where the Internet rules and pedophiles are rampant, the media and parents who promote this are only setting these poor children up as prey.

    Growing up does not mean becoming a sex object. A beautiful woman is gorgeous on the inside. She’s physically attractive in the way that she presents herself, and is chic but modest in her style. Think Carrie Underwood or Taylor Swift.

    The following is a prayer I would like to offer all you PI girls:

    Lord God, protect our young girls as they make their individual journeys through the lives you have blessed them with. Let them not be tempted by a media absorbed by money and lacking in morality. Show these girls the joys of being a child, and that adulthood comes soon enough. I ask you also, Lord, that you direct our girls so that they enhance their inner beauty, discover graceful modesty, and focus on being a follower of Christ, rather than a follower of fashion. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    Now it’s your turn. What was your initial reaction to the 20/20 clip? Do you ever find yourself dressing or acting too maturely for your age?
