THIS is an excellent post that appeared on www.latinafatale.com in 2011, but it will be advanced thinking for decades yet.
What's wrong with greeting a little girl by telling her how cute or pretty she is? I quote from the article, "Teaching girls that their appearance is the first thing you notice tells them that looks are more important than anything. It sets them up for dieting at age 5 and foundation at age 11 and boob jobs at 17 and Botox at 23."
Not being wild about kids, I rarely talk to children at all, but if I ever talk to a little girl, I'll make damn sure not to comment first on her appearance.
